They say that "GOOP" hand cleaner works wonders as a stain remover (it's made to remove car grease and oil from hands). Scrub it into the fabric with an old toothbrush then wait an hour before washing. Buy this at a dollar store or at an auto parts store. I've also heard that WD-40 can also work, but I've never tried it. (06/15/2009)

I have had fairly good luck with Pears bar soap. Just wet the spot or wet the bar soap and rub in good. You can also use a toothbrush on stain. It's worth a try. (06/15/2009)

I have noticed that using classic Dawn dish soap, not the ultra Dawn works for me every time. It works even if the clothing has been washed and dried in the dryer. Put a dab from the bottle right on the grease spots on your clothing and rub it in. Don't use too much because dishwashing soap is not good for the washing machine. You might need to adjust the amount of detergent you regularly use in that cycle so the combination won't be too sudsy. The Dawn Ultra doesn't seem to work for me, it may not have the same compound formula as the Classic Dawn. None of the other dishwashing liquids seem to work as well, but you could give it a try.
