Spilt oil on Alcantara seat (E46), Any suggestions how to clean?

Hello guys, I have a ZHP edition E46 3 series with complete Alcantara interior. I topped off the oil the other day, and didn't completely tighten the cap on the 1-quart bottle and left it on the passenger seat facing downwards

About a 1/4th of the oil spilled onto the seat from the time I left and got back in the car the next day, I can see the stain in the seat as well.

Is there any way I can clean this ? Any recommendations ? What products to use ?

Or is the seat gone/dead ?

Probably very difficult to properly clean - but there are Alcantara specific cleaning products that are definitely worth a shot.
