Grease stain on t-shirt not noticed before wash!

I'm short of clothes as it is and I've machine washed a t-shirt without realising I've splashed some kind of greasy blotches down the front.

The t-shirt is plain so I cannot disguise it as "part of the pattern" grin

T-shirt is now dry (in the hopes that the stains would magically disappear - it sometimes happens!) but they are very much still there.

How can I remove washed-in stains?

Fairy liquid, or equivalent, on staines and then back in the wash, although not much help if you want to wear it today, sorry.

rub some washing up liquid on the stain- leave it for half an hour and bung back in the wash. Works for me which is just as well as I am a messy eater <blush>

Thank you! I have to go to work now but will try washing up liquid later!

Wow, fab tips as I currently have a few t-shirts grease stained so will give that tip a go!

I was going to suggest Vanish liquid but it takes a few goes sometimes. I'll be trying Fairy Liquid next time too.

Definitely recommend Dylon stain solver for grease. Have to have it in stock at all times!
