Oxalic Acid, you can buy a product called Y10 from most chandlers that will get rid of these staines without any hassle!

I agree with Stephen!

However, make sure that after leaving the Y10 for about 10mins or so, you then thoroughly clean the area. Wet sponge and elbow grease. Then dry the area and wax.

I have used Y10 to remove oil stains from around a boats waterline on regular occasions,very good if its not too cold but found that the treated area seemed to go brown again quicker,as above I found liberal amounts of elbow grease and a good quality wax helped.
