How do I clean my outerwear with a bike grime stain?

My running jacket has a big black stain on the sleeve from where it got caught in my gears on a bike trip (it slipped out of my pannier). I tried dish soap at first, which made no difference. I can’t describe if it’s chain lube or grease or dirt (probably some combination); you know when you clean your chain/bike & it’s all black & grimy? It’s like that.

Any thoughts?

Using baking powder to absorb as much of the grease and grime as possible. Leave overnight and then shake off.

Next put some dishwashing liquid or laundry detergent on the stain and rub in from the inside of the clothing. Let sit for 30 minutes and then wash in the washing machine. Double check that the stain is gone before drying.

I used to have quite a headache when I had to get rid of bike grease stains from my clothes every time I serviced my bike. I have read several tutorials for removing grease from clothes. It has solved all my problems. This process includes: using dishwashing liquid, using laundry detergent, baking soda, or stain remover. For dishwashing liquid, you should put a small amount of solution on the yellowed clothes and then brush them clean, then rinse with cold water. As for washing powder, it is the opposite. It is advisable to pre-treat the fabric and then add detergent to wash it.
