*Butter*. The fat will dissolve the grease and then you can wash it out.

If you put it in the washer just like that the stain will become permanent.

DeSolvit spray is excellent. I have a flou yellow Gabba and on my very first time wearing it, I had some problem with my front derailleur where the chain dropped off the small ring 3 or 4 times during a 50km spin. I ended up with oil all over my hands which inevitably got on the jersey. I had it in my mind that it was destroyed and only fit for the bin or maybe use while on the MTB but my wife sprayed all the oil stains in desolvit and let it soak in and then put the jersey in the washing machine on its own on a 40 degree wash and voila...it came out absolutely pristine, i couldnt find any signs of the oil stains afterwards!

Its hard to get but i bought 5 bottles of it on amazon so as never to run out of it again.

I just looked for the DeSolvit spray and they are many different types.

Which one do you use?
