How to get camouflage cream off my armchair?

It was a bit of a good party...not for us, but the 7 year olds loved it! All fine and safely outside until the very end when we were enjoying a glass with the parents and own ds snuggled up to my pink armchair.
Wondered if you ladies had any tips? It was the real stuff not face paint and I'm a bit reluctant to smother it with make-up remover which seems to work on faces.

Many thanks.

Thanks, sunny and sal. May try babywipes before hitting it with grease removing gunk.

Had a go with baby wipes but no instant improvement so got cross and blasted the arm with white vinegar then rubbed (gently at first) with an e-cloth which turned satisfyingly black/green. Now it is dry it is better but still not gone. The problem is that it's all in the weave... However, may have another go with a clean e-cloth tomorrow.

Fortunately this chair was not in its first youth and the cat has already done its worst. Since the rest of the furniture was re-covered recently it's the only one I'll let the children sit on - which is a bit difficult when all four want to sit down!

Why not try an actual specialist make-up remover. Camo creme is easily removable with an old fashioned theatrical make-up remover like crowes cremoire. You would then obviously have to treat the area to remove the remover - but it might be a good start.

Or try rubbing alcohol, its an activator in many make-up products and should certainly get some of it at least out.
