How do I remove a shoe polish stain?

Shoe Polish Stain Removal from Clothing

To remove shoe polish from clothing, try applying a waterless mechanic's soap (available at auto supply stores). Rub into the stain, let sit, and launder as usual. If any stain remains, try scrubbing with a liquid dish detergent designed to cut grease.
