Things that you will require:

· Iron
· Clean and preferably soft cloth

Steps that you need to take:

2.   Next, place the clean soft cloth over the grease stained area.

3.   Start, ironing this cloth so that heat from the iron melts the grease on the wood.

4.   The grease will melt and will gradually come off the table and consequently get absorbed in the cloth.

5.   Continue this process until the grease stain disappears completely. However, make sure that every time you repeat the process you make use of a clean side of the cloth otherwise it is very probable that the absorbed grease would again transfer back to the wooden cloth.
Method Two (Using Vinegar and Dish washing Liquid)

Vinegar is an acknowledged, renowned and effective cleaning agent; whilst dish washing liquid has the tendency of cutting back grease. Due to these very reasons, the following method deploys making use of both these ingredients to get rid of grease stains.

Things that you will require:

· Clean cloth
· White vinegar
· Dish washing liquid
· Warm water
· Sponge

1.   First of all, you need to blot up all the excess grease from the stain using a clean cloth or rag. Having done that, it’s time you start treating the stain with the help of a cleaning solution.

2.   To make this solution, mix equal parts of warm water with white vinegar.

3.   Soak a sponge in this cleaning solution and use it to wipe the grease stained area. Make sure that you move the sponge in a circular motion so that it doesn’t spread any further.

4.   Continue repeating this process until the stain starts disappearing or fading.

5.   Afterwards, take a spray bottle and pour 1 teaspoon of dish washing liquid with warm water in it. Shake the spray bottle so that this cleaning solution gets mixed properly.

6.   Next, spray it on the stained area and allow it to set there for 5 to 10 minutes.

7.   Later, wipe it using a sponge and again rub the sponge in a circular motion.

8.   Once the grease stain has gone satisfactorily, wipe the wooden surface with a clean cloth soaked in clean water, making sure that all traces of stain along with the cleaning agents’ remnants are removed.

While moving the sponge in a circular motion, make sure that you do not apply too much pressure; otherwise it is quite probable that you end up damaging the surface.
