Default Cleaning up air filter oil?

So, got some spilled air filter oil in the pit box. Tried Dawn, concentrated Simple Green, and a few other things. Stuff ain't comin' out

Any ideas guys?

Thanks

After running my buggies, I went to our beach rec. club. Changed last filters wanted to save old ones for backup .I went to wash them out in the public restroom . they were out ofsoap so I used the wall mount hand sanitizer & hot water . WOW they looked like new best thing I have tried completly by accident.
