there are a few options, 1 greased lightning, (a cleaner) is good for that, 2 CRL is suppose to work also, and of course you can use a small steam cleaner like my wife does, these are cheap and you can get them @ Wall Mart. thats your best bet plus its handy for other things , hope this helps, thanks Bryan
