Oil on front of popup

My father-in-law was pulling his popup home from michigan and the truck blew up. Leaving oil on the front of the popup. Would it be alright just to use soapy water to clean that off??


Thanks in advance for any help,

I think you could also take it to a car wash and use the engine cleaner setting to get most of it off and then the high pressure soap and rinse the home wash would do the rest.

If dawn does not work try something like purple power degreaser and I would not use a pressure washer they have more power than a car wash may do more harm than good.

Dawn is your safest bet so try that first. If that doesn't work sufficiently try Simple Green. It is amazing, just be sure to dilute it with water because full strength is pretty stout and best reserved for engines and tires and BBQ grills.

I would refrain from using it on canvass at all because it *could* remove waterproofing but on hard surfaces it is hard to match without using harsh chemicals. Wax after to help restore UV protection.

Smells clean too!
