Washing up liquid. Rub it in neat then re-wash and it'll be fine

Scrub a little washing up liquid into the greasy areas, soak in warm water for 20mins and then wash again. You may need to repeat this process a couple of times! Grease is so difficult to remove sad

Dry shampoo (not the coloured stuff!) - spray on, leave overnight or so, and wash - voila! grease spots gone.

Dylon travel wash - sold in Boots in a yellow tube for about £1.00

It is the best stain remover I have ever used.

I buy it specifically for stains. Just put a bit on neat, leave for 5 mins or so & wash as normal.

when you put it in the washer, add a cup of Washing Soda Crystals. They break down grease and also make the powder dissolve faster and work better.

Green household soap rubbed in before washing works really well too.

Lots of paper towels over and under the stain. Towel on top of the paper towels. Iron. The grease will melt and be absorbed by the paper towels. Good luck.
