How to remove a paper towel from an lawnmower engine oil tank?

Towel

RuralNerd asks:

OK, so I was checking my lawnmowers oil level, and I wiped the dip stick off with a paper towel, and I must have dropped it down partially into the the tank and shoved it down completely in with the dipstick when I absent-mindedly put it back in. It’s a Briggs & Stratton Quattro. I dismounted it from the mower deck and drained the oil tank, but I don’t see the paper towel in the oil. So how do I get it out? Or do I even need to get it out?

pour some paraffin in and tip it upside down, repeat untill it’s out/visable or it will block any filter if there is one
