I used some dawn on my teak table. Got rid of most of it and the sun took care of the rest in short order.

Not sure about using this on a PT deck but Dawn detergent, a stiff scrub brush and baking soda makes a paste that will remove grease / butter stains from any material. It might be worth a try.

Section of paper grocery bag, lay it on the spot(s). Heat up an iron and iron over the paper. It will draw the butter into the paper.

Disclaimer, I kind of just made that up, but it might work.

Have your dog lick it clean as a second option.

There should laws and fines for being so careless and wasting melted butter.

I thought it was Jack Smack...

My grandfathers name was Jack Smack... so we always used that name, He was skinny as a rail. Grandma was fat... made sense to us kids.

"and betwixt the two of them they liked the platter clean"

K2R is what we use on teak decks aboard yachts. It’s like dry cleaning fluid.
