Potassium Hydroxide may work better since you don't have Heat. Potassium tends to give off more heat than sodium Hydroxide. Also it will all depend on what oil you wish to remove. Then you will also want a hydroxide with other ingredients. Butyl and metallisicate are among the few. My spelling is off so forgive me today.

Thanks Dave! The Potassium Hydroxide sounds like the trick. you spoke of Butyl and metallisicate, when would these be applicable?

Speaking of spelling. I'm off everyday.
thanks to all!

I use a butyl degreaser with sodium metasilicate. The trick to oil with cold water is dwell time. I add some potassium or sodium hydroxide on bad spots
