After foolishly driving a dozen miles with the oil cap off, I cleaned 
my (previously dirty) pad by wetting thoroughly with degreaser, then 
spraying with a garden hose. The nozzle was set to "mist" which is a 
gentle spray that won't disturb the loose fibers.  It worked really 
   In my case, since i couldn't remove the clips, I left the pad on the 
engine lid and taped a dropcloth to protect the car and the engine bay. 
  The dirt and oil came right out and the pad quickly drip dried.  -ron
