Removing oil from painted wall

Ok I tried the magic erasers and that didn't do anything...anyone know how to remove an oil stain from a wall that is painted?

I think the pain is a basic matte paint used in an apartment. Nothing special or expensive. I think the oil is like olive oil.

  • 1.Apply a small amount of Un-Do or gasoline to a clean rag until the rag is moist, but not soaked.

    2. With a circular motion, gently rub the rag onto the soiled surface. Apply more pressure if the stain is set-in. Continue until stain is gone.

    3 .Allow the area to dry as you may need to repeat the steps to ensure full removal of the oil.
