Start by treating the oily/waxy component of the stain with a pre-treater (Shout, Zout or Vaska Spotoff)or any stain remover. Then rub with heavy-duty liquid detergent or a paste made of powdered detergent and water. Scrub stain lightly and rinse in hot water. Next, wash in the hottest water suitable for the fabric using detergent and an all-fabric bleach (OxiClean, Clorox 2, Country Save Bleach, Purex 2 Color Safe Bleach) to remove the dye in the stain.
