    Help with stains in tunic

    I have a white tunic for my college course. I have noticed stains on the back which I think is from massage cream when I had a facial massage done (which includes shoulders) and it wasn't all removed when I put tunic back on. The stain looks oily and won't come out. Any tips on how to remove?
