Soak up the oil with newspaper, then rub lightly with mineral spirits. Finally clean gently with a mild detergent.

It depends on the finish.... I would try what the above person said if it is polyurethaned... But if it's waxed, i would try a very fine steel wool (4.0) and a little furniture wax or tongue oil

Sometimes peroxide will remove dark stains from wood if it is dark.

Mineral Spirits work!! I had a scented oil plug-in that was knocked over when I was gone for a trip. It spilled all over my paperwork and seeped into my Ikea desk (acrylic finish). So not only was the desk stained with ink, the oil formed an impenetrable layer above the ink.


I picked up some paint thinner and believe it or not, I was able to scrub it out with the rough side of a sponge. Id say I got about 90% of it out. Would recommend!!
