So, the first thing you need to is to remove the excess fat using a paper towel or dishcloth.

Then apply vinegar on the stain.

Finish the cleaning process by wiping the remaining fat with a cloth.

To remove alcohol stain rub the affected area vigorously with wax.

If the stain still persists, you have the choice to use metal polish cream.
