Oil stain remover

Does anyone know what product to use to get oil stains of the centre console on a ford focus. I've tried autoglym tar remover but no good. Cheers .

Have you tried panel wipe or diluted IPA? Get some on a kitchen towel and blot from the inside of the stain outwards.

Just wondering if baby wipes would shift it? They’re good enough to remove 5th wheel grease from the front corners of my trailer curtains when the knobby drivers screw it round in tight yards, leaving it plastered everywhere!

Hi
Be careful using panel wipes and brake cleaners on leather ... these can remove the protective coating of the leather making the leather more prone to further staining or colour loss.
I would suggest degreasing the leather and colouring over any stain left. If you want to send me some photos of the problem areas, I can advise you accordingly on what products to use and what procedures to follow to restore your leather.

Yeah I just wondered .... "on what material" are we talking here. I'd certainly not go onto plastics etc with strong solvents. If the oil is deeply seeped into something porous, it may be a bit difficult. On normal plastics, I'd try a medium gentle APC or so. If nothing helps, it might be able to get polsihed out?
