Default fuel on balsa

I have some balsa stock that got some fuel dripped on it. The parts go to a kit. How can I get the fuel cleaned up so I can use the parts?

K2R Spot Remover. It is available in most grocery stores in the laundry soap section. Works great!

Or talcum powder works great. If you can bury the pieces in the talc and leave for as long as you want. (A couple days to a week or more)

Removes the oil with very little work.
