    Removing possible oil stain on fabric tail

    So I thought I would be cool and climb up a boat ladder in my tail. I got black spots my dad says may be oil from the boat and might not come out. I sent it thru the washer as it is safe for this brand, and it didn't even fade. Am I screwed?

    Most likely safe (for the fabric): pour pure dashing machine detergent on the stain, scrub it by hand.
    Not sure if its safe: Hand cleaner, like you use after working in a shop. Next, gasoline.
    Both those last two you will need to test on a tiny part of the tail to insure nothing bad happens.

    Hand soap or wash degreaser. Preferably one with citrus (orange and lemons) in it. The acid in citrus is good at breaking down oil fats. Pretty sure it won't fade/stain fabrics as it is used on the skin. But to be sure, test a tiny area first.

    Try using a de-greasing kitchen spray that has no harsh chemicals in it to get the stain out then wash straight away
