    Lift droppings

    Anyone have any good secrets to getting lift grease droppings off of a ski jacket? Wife bought me a nice colorful jacket (a TJ Shiller jacket my 14 yo tells me) but spring warmth and wet snows have left a few lift grease spots on it that I would like to get removed.

    Weird. That's never happened to me but, now that I'm aware of it, I'm sure it's in my future.

    Really? You can see the grease stains in the snow under the lifts. Really visible in Utah last week.

    Yep had a similar experience had a branfd new jacket get grease bombed the First day i used it

    try Lestoil -- it worked wonders for me took it all off , I rubbed it on first and brushed it in to the fabric , for kicks i took a very small amt of GOJO Hand cleaner and VERY gently rubbed that in and then washed it -- BINGO did the trick . I have subsequently used just the Lestoil and it worked alone too on a small grease spot

    Good luck

    This happened to my (light gray) pants and I tried the same. They got most of the stain out but not all of it, so I went nuclear and brought out the Goof Off. I was afraid of damaging the fabric but it worked. All I can say is Helly Hansen makes a very durable product!

    Whatever you do be sure to keep the waterproofness of the jacket intact - way more important than looks.

    I'd spot treat with liquid nikwak - apply to the spot at rub like heck, then wash per nikwax instructions.

    Dye the rest of the jacket to match the stain. Then you don't have to worry about it again.
