Cleaning WD-40 Residue

Whenever I use WD-40, I notice it leaves an oily residue. I usually just clean it with a homemade all-purpose or degreaser spray, but I was wondering if anyone had any other ways that are perhaps a little easier?

Dawn blue dish liquid should work well for WD stains.

i do not know just where you are using WD-40 but Dawn generally removes most oily stains whether it is on clothing or other things.

Clothes - just put Dawn on the spot - wait a few minutes and wash as usual.

Anything else? - I accidentally got some on an outdoor picnic table and just used a wet cloth, couple drops of Dawn and it cleaned right up.
