How do I removed grease stains from clothes, all types of material?

I always recommend My Clean Shirt for stain removal. The stuff really works. They won me over with a ink stain, then I grew to love My Clean Shirt for my husbands "caveman" style ring around the collar. The website is: http://www.mycleanshirt.com
How can I remove diesel oil and grease from clothing after it has set in?
I have tried many things,used many things finally I can recommend one thing I know for sure works. On HSN.com there is a product called S2O. They have laundry sheets and a liquid stain remover. Made from organic products, made especially for removing oil, grease, stains that nothing else I have heard of does.
The laundry sheets are affordable, less than any store brands for sure.I only need 1 sheet per load,comes out to about 40 cents a load. You do not need boosters, pre-wash products not even bleach. The liquid is what is in sheets just in stronger form. The scientist that made it shows a demo where he dumps axle grease right on fabric and it dissolves away from clothes. Old stains as well as new.
They have 30 day money back guarantee, give it a try. I was amazed just how it removes under arm stains,ring around the collar (all is oil based) then can get out blood. I hope you find it as helpful as I have. Once again it is called S2O. There is a 800 number or you can look it up on HSN.com. Luck your way saving money on clothes!
How do you remove old grease stains from clothing?
By Sandra from Cyprus
Shampoo was a massive help! Thank you so much @rforbes! I used Tresseme too! I got garlic bread greese on some chinos, and from what I can tell it's almost totally gone! If I do it again, I reckon it'll be completely gone! :D
Just recently as I was eating a quesadilla, grease spilled out of the end of the piece I was eating and spilled on my shorts. The shorts are 100% cotton. I washed them once and hang dried them and the stains are still there. Any ideas on the best method to remove the stain?
Thanks in advance,
I have had good luck removing grease stains from cotten tee shirts, etc using Shout and Neutragena shampoo. I spray the stain with the Shout then add a generous coating of the neutragena shampoo. Then soak in cold water for a couple of hours before washing as normal. I have had to treat a stain twice on occasion. Good luck!
When my wife washes my t-shirts they come out with stains on them. The stain looks like a light kind of round oil stain. We can't figure out where these stains are coming from. They are on my white and colored t-shirts. All of them go in clean and come out stained. We even got a new washing machine.

Maybe it's something in the dryer. Try checking it every time before you throw the clothes in. I say this because I had a tiny puddle that appeared in the bottom of the drum during humid weather. I noticed it before anything happened but would have had mystery stains, too, if I hadn't accidentally seen it.

By Zack from Chicago, IL
Try WD40. I'd spray it on and let it set for at least a half hour. It works at taking out sharpy marks off clothes and also tar on car surfaces without damaging the surface. Good luck.
Is there a good homemade formula for removing chocolate or grease stains from cotton clothing?
By Tracy from Kansas City, MO
I use dish soap on my husbands t-shirts even if the grease is dry it will still remove it. Get a good name brand dish soap put it on full strength, let it sit for an hour or two, wash in warm water. It cuts the grease.

Spray wd-40 on the stain, let it sit for 10 min, then rinse it out with water. Follow with a laundry pre-treat stain remover (Spray n Wash, etc), then launder.

How do you remove an oil based stain from a white t shirt?
By Krystal S
Apply a liquid dish soap as Dawn to the spot and allow it to soak in. A little water may speed the process. Then launder the shirt. Do not add additional soap as you will have a mountain of suds. It may take a couple of treatments to remove all the oil, but I have always had success.

By Judy S.
Depends on type of material, but dawn really is a miracle worker! Just dap a little on, massage it in and let it set for a little while and wash as usual.
I got heavy equipment grease on my cream colour jacket (polyester shell). I washed it, but the grease is still there. How do I clean it? Thank you.
By Carter B.
i bought a pair of lovely royal blue cotton trousers, but something leaked in my bag, it was grease. I washed them straight away, but alas the stain was still there. So this time I massaged Fairy liquid into the area and washed again; now there's a small amount of stain left, but it is noticeable. What can I do now?
Rub Dawn dish washing liquid onto the stain and throw into the washer.
To remove grease stains from clothing (black grease from vehicles) use bathing soap - the milder the better! Works like a charm. By Rukhmin
To remove grease and/or oil stains from clothing I prerub the areas with TIDE liquid detergent. If the clothing has been previously been put in the dryer your chances of removing the stain will be poor as heat sets the stain. This remedy only works on a freshly set stain. Happy clothing stain removal.

I have used the product Lestoil on my most stubborn stains for years. It has gotten out motor oil, grease, iron, formula from baby clothes and all different kinds of stains. Try it, I bet will work for you too.

At first I thought that it was our washing machine that caused the little "grease" spots on my shirts. We got a new washer and the problems seemed to go away for maybe a month and then were back.
ALSO, our bath towels, first time you use them after they are washed, they stink like old stinky towels. IMMEDIATELY, as soon as you get them wet, you can smell the "yucky towel" smell.
What can I do to solve these two laundry problems?
By Ann Washburn
As far as the stinky towels are concerned, try adding 1/2 cup of white vinegar to each load of wash. It's best if it's added in the final rinse for the towels but adding it to the wash water might help with the grease spot problems. Susan (08/27/2004)
By Donna in Kansas
As far as stinky towels goes, I've given up on ever owning pretty decorator colors. I only buy white or beige towels, always wash them separately in hot water with a small amount of bleach, and put them into the dryer immediately afterward. Letting them sit (even overnight) makes them stinky, and I have to re-wash. (10/01/2004)

Someone sent me a forward that had this info: You can add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.
I've also used ammonia on underarm sweat stains, just soak for a while and then wash as usual and it takes the stains out.
Let me know if any of this helps, (08/08/2006)
How do you remove black grease from clothing after it has gone through the washer and dryer several times (tried several ways to remove)?
Tracee from Sandy, Utah
Don't use too much WD 40 because it has an odor, but not too bad if used in drops. Do NOT spray directly to your garment. It's strong enough to do the job on q-tips, if you carefully "wet" the spot ONLY and do not rub too widely, checking and changing the pads frequently. Good luck and God bless your hands as you follow this suggestion. : ) (09/28/2006)
