I had the same problem. I removed as much of the stain as I could and then put down an oil-absorbing mat. It looks nice, covers the old stain and prevents any future stains.

Sprinkle down a VERY liberal layer of baking soda on the stain, then pour lemon juice all over the baking soda and let set for 15-30 mins then scrub up. Should remove it in a snap.

I've used it to get rid of rust stains and all sorts of junk off of various surfaces.

I'll give that a go too, thank you.
