Greasy-looking dark stains on coloured garments, usually 100% polyester garments.
This is not an issue that is being caused by your washing machine or any fault with your washer, it is caused by spillage and no service or repair can resolve this problem.
Please read the directions below to resolve this issue.
Pre-treat with Ariel Liquid and then wash at the highest temperature recommended on the fabric care label.
Cause & Prevention
Oil/Grease can be difficult to remove from polyester, eg, spills from eating or cooking.
Wear an apron when cooking with oil. If you get oily marks on a garment wash as soon as possible, pre-treating with, for example, Ariel Liquid first will help remove the stains.
This treatment should also work for other types of fabric.
