How to remove grease/oil stains from clothing?

I used to use Shout or Resolve to remove oil stains from clothing but they no longer work. I have tried using the Sunlight soap bar with the Shout but still no results. Any suggestions?

    Have you dried the item in the dryer? Usually once you dry in the dryer, the stain is set. If not, rub Dawn blue detergent into it. Let it sit, then wash. That has helped me with some grease stains.

    If that doesn't work, try using Purell (hand sanitizer). You need to work it into the fabrice and may take more than one try, but has worked for me. Just work it in, let it set for 10 minutes and rinse by hand to see if it works. If better but not gone, repeat!

    The dish detergent works by de-bonding grease, so the best thing to do is to use it on your oil stains, its powerful- you might need a few tries though- good luck!
