Default Clean grease/soot smudge from headliner?

It was a brand new drop light and it was dark outside (when most of my installs are done). Installing my wideband I needed to get behind the glove box, into the overhead console, and... under the car and in the engine bay. Under the car, installing the sensor, I only used the drop light for a minute but I did hang it on the side of the motor and narrowband cables. Then back in the car I hung it on the sun visors and the overhead console. doh... now I have a couple of smudges on the headliner.

suggestions?

Great. I've got that light grey headliner of unknown material and I didn't want to leave any sort of grease spots on it like gumout or googone would.

If you can't remember the name just send me what you have left over

I think Mark's is probably better than what I was going to suggest, but in my wife's Jeep which also has a light grey headliner I used Power Out...it's a red and yellow bottle and that shiite works awesome! It got the smudge out from whatever it was. I also spilled coffee in my winter beater a few months ago (damn cupholder sucks on those Pontiacs) and used Power Out, and I gotta say, it got the stain right out and quick.

If you can't figure out what my real name is you probably don't need to know it anyway.

They'll have to make that a standard addition to wideband install instructions.
