Default K2R replacement for oil soaked balsa?

I've always heard to use K2R spot remover on oil soaked balsa. No local stores have it, and amazon wants $20 a can. Is there anything else recommended to soak up the oil now?

Cornstarch, and heat....

Nothing gets it all out. Repeated tries may get it to a point where you can seal the surface with thin CA, and refinish from there....
