Removing grease from Musto Waterproofs?

Can anyone recommend a method for removing ig grease stains from a pair of musto MPX yellow waterproof trousers?

Obviously i didn't want to just rub them with degreaser to find it melted the fabric!!!

Any suggestions?

If they were mine, I'd rub them with a cloth and some washing up liquid. Followed by a squirt of heavily diluted TFR and water. I occasionally put my water-proofs in the washing machine inside a pillow case which brings them up like new, and they're still waterproof after several years.

Yep, a drop of TFR sorts most stains. I use it on our ski gear also. Work the diluted TFR into the stained area and then bung it in the w/ machine. Then back in for another wash using Nikwax wash-in re-proofer. It puts the proofing back that the TFR removes. I buy the re-proofer on Ebay.

We used Musto Offshore gear for our guests when taking people on sailing holidays. Musto warned us never to use detergents to clean them as the waterproofing ( which in those days was neoprene) would be ruined.

The waterproof coating was often destroyed around the cuffs because people would wear the jackets while doing the washing up in the cockpit.

Lux soap flakes were the recommended cleaning agent. The waterproofing technology may have moved on since then. A quick call to Musto should give you an answer I would have thought. Good luck.
