    I have an oil/fat stain in my trousers. I think it was when I accidentally spilled some fish oil or meat fat onto my trousers. I have washed the trousers once and it still shows up really badly, looking like I have peed myself which is a look I don't want to have How can I get rid of the stain?

    Ecover do a really good stain remover. I haven't found anything it can't get rid of. And it's pretty cheap too.

    I went to tesco and all I could find were Ecover dishwasher tablets. I didnt buy it. Are you sure this is the right product?

    When I spilt bike oil on my light blue jeans, I mixed together washing powder and washing up liquid and left it on there for about 30 minutes before putting them in the wash, and the stain completely disappeared! However this was straight after I spilt it on them, so it might not work for you now.

    Hmm, I have (not even sure if it's even a stain) on my trousers which is clearly noticeable and wonder if this thingy could help me to get rid off it. Would this stain remover damage fabric even if it's not the stain but just the fabric that wore off after few washes?

    I wouldn't have thought so if its that the colour has worn away.
