    does anyone know how to totally remove grease from a jersey?.
    i have tried pre-wash stain removers but they hardly remove the mark at all. Any home tried and tested methods around?

    Haven't tried yet, but I would use some kerosene locally which would dissolve the grease. Once the stain is removed, I'd wash with suds as usual to remove the kerosen trace. I don't expect kerosene to harm the printings on the jersey, but as I said, I haven't tried yet.

    Cheers,
    Amir.

    try some citrus degreaser, like the stuff you get for your chain, its a bit more gentle than kero, and smells alot better ....

    It's never caused problems here. I just use it as a wash rather than for soaking.
