How to remove grease stains from stone surfaces?

1. Completely clean and dry surfaces 

Before applying Faber No oil, ensure surfaces are completely clean. Remove any dust, dirt and debris. 

It is also important to note that surfaces being treated with this grease and oil remover should not be wet or more than slightly damp.

2. Apply Faber No Oil

Pour the oil stain remover directly onto the surface. Use a brush or spatula to make sure the surface is completely covered in a thick layer of No Oil. 

3. Leave No Oil to act

Allow for the product to act on the surface until it completely dries.

This oil stain remover becomes a white powdery residue when drying. As a fast drying solution, it dries after no longer than 1-2 hours from application.

4. Remove any residue 

Afterwards, remove any remaining solution and residue with a clean cloth. 

When completely dry, remove the powder residue with a soft bristled broom or clean brush when treating porous materials.

For compact, non absorbent materials, use an absorbent paper, towel or cloth to remove the residue.

Then, wipe the surface with a slight damp cloth or mop and wait for it to dry.  

5. Repeat if necessary 

Repeat this process if the results you want were not achieved. 


For porous surfaces such as sandstand or handmade cotto, after completing the treatment, powder may remain trapped in the pores.

Remove this powder with a vacuum or a liquid cleaner and extractive detergent. We recommend Faber Deterfug.

However, for my difficult cases, use a pressure washer.
