Removing Grease Stain - Tried Lots of Things

I've tried simple green, I've used the orange hand wash you use to remove grease stains, I've used dish soap. Nothing is taking the grease out of my jacket. What do I do?

I've had a lot of luck with dishwashing liquid (not the kind for dishwashers, the kind used for hand washing dishes). Just put a bit on, rub in and wash. It works on set in stains, also. Really bad ones may need two washings. (01/03/2005)

Lestoil; it smells strong, but because it has petroleum distillates, it will remove any grease stain. Just apply it directly, let it soak in for a few minutes, then wash normally (warm to hot water). You may need to rewash to remove the odor. (01/04/2005)

As a last resort, ammonia has been very effective for me. You can pour it directly on the stain then launder as usual. You can also put a cup or two into your load of laundry. (01/04/2005)

Spray with WD40 then wash as usual. This works great for all my grease stains. (01/04/2005)

Try Dawn dish soap. When I have what seems to be impossible grease stains, I liberally spread Dawn, wait 5 minutes and wash. I have never had a stain get passed the Dawn dishsoap. (01/04/2005)

If it is on something you do not want to wash, try putting powder on the stain. Let it set for several hours and brush it off. Repeat until oil/grease is absorbed and gone. (01/04/2005)

Spray and Wash works for me. Spray it on, wait an hour, wash like normal. (01/22/2007)

Yes, Dawn dish liquid or Coca Cola. Both are great stain relievers for grease. (09/09/2007)

Try using lighter fuel, it actually says on the bottle that its great for removing grease, oil, and tar. (02/01/2008)

Leather will eventually dissipate oil and grease of its own accord. An excess can be carefully removed from durable leathers with mineral spirits or kerosene on a cloth. (Don't use anything highly flammable like gasoline or cigarette lighter fluid, and always ensure adequate ventilation until fumes are gone.) (10/23/2008)

Gasoline. I used it several times for the many times. I got grease gunk on different outfits. (02/24/2009)
