Red face Oil stains

When cooking the other day I mixed white wine and oil together and basically exploded it all over my kitchen.I am fine, a few insignificant burns, but my bamboo rug and silk tapestry are not. Any suggestions on how to get the oil out?
Thank you so much.

Professional cleaning is recommended for silk tapestries. Manufacturers of bamboo rugs recommend periodical cleaning with damp cloth. Solvent cleaner, which is usually recommended for blotting oil stains, would likely take a toll on finish or unstable dye in binding. Always test any DIY cleaning method in an inconspicuous place first for ill effects.

I would also remove such hard to clean items from my kitchen so as to not be dealing with this again down the road.
