    Thing with fully washing and then drying is it'll make it that much harder to get those stains out now.

    I don't know what else to say now that I know they've been dried so . Maybe someone else knows some tricks.

    I've thrown clothes away before for this reason. I googled to try to find a solution, but since I dried the clothes, most said I was SOL.

    There is an industrial De-greaser I use it is call C60..BEST THING EVER. It takes pen, grease, oil, grass, paint, etc out of clothes even if they have been washed and dried. I'm not sure where you can just go out and buy it (My dad works with machines, that how I get it) but I have found it on Amazon Amazon.com: C-60 Solvent cleaner and degreaser: Automotive


    Just beware, this stuff will eat through paint so don't use it on a surface you like ....like the top of the washer or dryer perhaps ....learned that the hard way. But I usually use in on cotton, poly, jeans, etc besides delicate things and it works beautifully.

    Try dish soap. I'm not positive that it will work, but I've used it before to get out old grease stains in my clothes.

    I've used the Lysol kitchen cleaner on grease stains. Saturate rub together and let sit for a couple of hours (or overnight) then saturate and wash on the warmest water setting for the fabric/color. I normally let the item air dry and repeat the steps until grease spots are gone.
