Scoop or scrape up as much of the spill as possible, followed by a thorough blotting of the remaining spotting with a dry, clean cloth. If cloth is not available, paper towels are an acceptable substitute.
For non-oil based stains, create a detergent solution by adding 1/4 teaspoon of liquid dish detergent to one (1) cup of warm water. Apply the solution to the ffected area (do not scrub) and blot with a dry, clean cloth. Repeat the process until the stain stops transferring to the cloth. If the stain still appears on the platform, apply the solution to the area and allow it to stand for 2-5 (two-to-five) minutes. Then rinse with clear, clean water.
