dry cleaning chemistry


would like to know more about how this was done--dry cleaner would not elaborate--i have a strong background in chemistry
got grease stain oncotton spandex tee shirt--grease was not silicone based
as usual i used oven cleaner to turn the grease into soap--it took out the grease but not the stain ( stainwas green)
dry cleaner removed it
what do you think his approach was?
any sites that address spot removal is apppreciated--i could not find any

"A strong background in chemistry...", but "could not find any" sites addressing the dry cleaning procedure. That amusing: I found many such sites. Here are a few:

What a coincidence! A few weeks ago zelda wrote that lye was good for carpets, and you like to use it on spandex.
