What is the best way to get grease stains off a hand embroidered tablecloth?

I have a hand embroidered tablecloth that has some stains and I am afraid I'll ruin it if I go too harsh, but just regular cycle in the washer does not take off the stains. Some are probably oily stains, others may be from tomato sauce or wine. Any suggestions on how to clean a "precious" tablecloth? The fabric is white and the flowers embroidered are colorful.

    Thanks cat on a soapbox! I never heard of corn starch on the stains, I will definitely try that.
