Posted 1 year ago CaptainFlashheartMember Sudocrem Posted 1 year ago FrankersMember Something like White Lightning Degreaser, then a 40deg wash with normal washing liquid Posted 1 year ago codybrennanMember CaptainFlashheart – Member Sudocrem Ah, the memories… Posted 1 year ago dirtyriderMember white wine Posted 1 year ago Monster101Subscriber Osprey hydration pack in red now blighted by leaking finishline wet lube and resultant large oil stain. What’s the best thing to clean it with to get the stain out. And yes I’m a total tool Posted 1 year ago BigJohnSubscriber I find giving a big squirt of fairy liquid and rubbing it well in before a 40 wash works on every kind of stain much better than Vanish. Posted 1 year ago jambalayaSubscriber @cody its brilliant for sunburn and bike rash too ! OP my suggestion would be working in washing up liquid, thorough handwash and soak thrn washing machine on am intemse cyclle (edit I see BigJ suggests much the same) Posted 1 year ago Monster101Subscriber Cheers all, I’ll give it a bash. Posted 1 year ago peteandsooMember you can get something called Elbow Grease from the factory shop or the CooP, brilliant stuff for those type of things. Spray on let it soak then put it in the washing machine. Posted 1 year ago gofasterstripesSubscriber Lots of soda crystals. Should turn oils into soap. Posted 1 year ago selkirkbearMember Spray the stain with hairspray or WD40 just before putting it through a wash cycle. As with all oil/grease marks wash it on as high a temperature cycle as it will stand. Posted 1 year ago DezBSubscriber finishline wet lube Ah the 90s lube of choice..
