You will probably never get it completely off, unless you got alot of patience - I usually start by removing most of it with simple paper towel, be careful not to smear it all over. This is of course not for the socket, but around it.
Next, use some eraser - if you have it - and use it to absorb the vaseline.
Last part might sound weird, but it works - Throw the motherboard in the dishwasher, do not add soap, and let it run a program or even two. Then let the motherboard dry for as long as needed - I know a few that put it in the oven at LOW TEMPERATURE just to melt the very last vaseline into an ultra thin layer.
