Most likely you are talking about butter stains and these can be very difficult to remove - especially from a delicate fabric.

  • If it is a fresh stain you may be able to remove most of the stain with baby powder or baking soda.
  • If the stain is already set then you might try a dish washing soap (like grease cutting Dawn).
  • Lay garment with stain showing (only one layer of cloth) on clean towel and apply liquid soap. Rub in with a toothbrush and let sit for about 30 minutes.
  • Run under hot to hotter water (whatever your fabric can take) until all soap is removed.
  • It may take more than once to completely remove the stain. Then wash (delicate garment should be washed in a lingerie garment bag) in warm water.
  • Check to be sure stain is gone before placing in dryer.
  • Stains can sometimes be removed if placed in the sun (on top of a clean white towel) by keeping garment wet and moving to different clean places on the towel.

Is it from butter or from the actual lobster? I'd use a pre-wash and hand wash and let it dry outside.
