I got olive oil out of my linen trousers by covering the stain with cornflour, leaving it for a while and brushing it off. The stain vanished & I didn't even need to wash the trousers

Did u wet the cornflour or just put it on dry?

Was it a dried in stain?

No, don't wet it. The olive oil had been absorbed into the fabric, which is what makes me think it might work for you - or maybe try talc, as the idea is that it absorbs the grease.

Me too, but I like Leapfrogs idea of cornflower or talc.

Stain Devils are amazing things and never fail. I love them for things like biro stains.

While we are on the subject of stains anyone got any ideas for removing ink from the inside of a wooden tobacco box that I am trying to renovate. It is about 1920 and someone has obviously used it for pens, old fashioned nib pens.

Sorry this is a Hi jack !!!

Not to sound like I'm advertising for Ariel, but their new Stain Removal range (released a week or so ago) removed grease stains from my aunty's t-shirt. I know that a lot of places have got it on offer for £2.98 at the moment (like Wilkinsons) :) xxx
