    I have bought (Last September) a Endura Jacket from my local Edinburgh shop.

    Last week I bought some special detergent for this

    The jacket was getting a wee bit oily after me hiking the bike up the stairs - the jacket must have caught some oil off the bike chain.

    Last night I washed the jacket with a cool 30 degree wash and put two of the cup fulls of the graingers stuff in the wash.

    I did not put any Non Biological gel tablets in the wash.

    Now the jacket seems okay after I drip-dried it overnight but the black stains are still there

    How do I get rid of these black stains? Can I buy any special stuff from a uk supermarket.?

    Can I use non- biological (blue tabs ) to clean my Jacket?
    Can I use washing up liquid and an old toothbrush on the stains?

    I've found in the past that an abrasive/exfoliating industrial hand wash designed to clean oil and other tough stains off hands has worked well to remove oil stains off clothes.

    I simply rubbed it into the stain and then rinsed off with fresh water, and the stain either disappears completely or is reduced.
