Oil or grease stains

The wife and I went to a gathering yesterday. We were given doggy bags to take home and the missus shoved them on to the back seat. Unbeknownst to us, the greaseproof paper had been placed on top of the food (fried stuff like spring rolls) instead of underneath and the whole thing was in a plastic carrier bag.

There's now four grease spots on the seat approx 2p sized and I've tried dabbing with kitchen roll to see if it will absorb (it won't). The bag was sat there for about two hours.

Any ideas on how to get the stains out?
The seats are a light grey fabric and the stains are very obvious.

I'd try some diluted APC (BH Surfex HD, G101, Britemax Grimeout or similar) at 10:1 (water:APC). Saturate and allow to dwell for at least several minutes. Re-apply and agitate with a brush, mopping up with a microfibre. Repeat if necessary.

Depending on results/access to equipment you could try a stronger dilution, or hit it with a steamer.

Good luck!

Intensive Tar Remover (yes really). Dab it onto the stains with a clean microfibre or paper towel. Once the spots have been cleaned, use Interior Shampoo to remove the Intensive Tar Remover residue.

Intensive Tar Remover can also be used to remove chewing gum from interiors too.

ALWAYS TEST A HIDDEN AREA FIRST TO ENSURE THERE ARE NO UNEXPECTED RESULTS
