Remove anything greasy with "Goop" the hand cleaner made to clean mechanic's greasy hands. Use an old toothbrush to get the Goop into the stain, then leave it set for an hour or so then blot & rinse, blot & rinse (to rinse, it's easiest to use a spray bottle full of water). You may have to do this twice, but I doubt it.

I put talcum powder on stain and vacuumed powder.

Great result on expensive couch.

Does anyone know how to get Vaseline (petroleum jelly) off of a fabric couch? I got some on my couch, and then when I tried to use soapy dish soap to get it out (which is what I have used in the past for "stuff" on the couch) all it did was make a water mark with the Vaseline spot still there. Help.

Try using Dawn dish soap straight from the bottle with a tooth brush and gently rub it in. Its made to cut grease and should help get it out. (05/22/2008)
