It'll mask the grease marks from the lift.

I'd just follow the manufacturer's cleaning instructions, but use a prewash stain remover like Resolve first. The DWR is intended to be washed although eventually it will have to be renewed, grease or no grease.

 TEC Clean in Truckee CA. Vail in CO send guests gear there by fedex. My white pants were returned, stain free, in brand new condition. No discolouration, no 'shadow' left behind. I think the clean was $60 but the pant were picked up and dropped back to me at Squaw.

I use Permatex hand cleaner. It gets stains out really well. Not sure about the DWR compatibility but I haven't noticed any leakage.

just use techwash or your usual ski wear washing routine. .  Just pretreat and rub extra detergent on the stained spot before the wash.  Same as washing regular clothes, but just using the ski-specific detergent.

 

If you lose the dwr, try tumbledry, or you need to refresh it with dwr spray.

Old technology attracts stains. Nature's way of telling you it's time to consume. 

 

Burn it, with suitable ceremony, and go buy a new, better, one. This is a Gear Forum, for gods' sakes. We're here to tell you what to buy. And buy. And buy. Your jacket is ruined, no longer perfect, obviously nearly outdated anyway. Let go of it. 

 

OK, so you could do the green thing and give it to Goodwill. But the fire idea is pretty cool, especially if you do it after a six pack so you don't notice the toxic fumes...

Try some Dawn dishwashing soap.  Usually works for me on grease.

Picrin is good stuff, but when we moved I lost a jar of it someone shared with me.  I now use OxiClean  or soft soap and a toothbrush, which is all that is necessary since I started Scotch Guarding every outer item that isn't black or leather.

Did that, worked!

 

Hand rubbed in Dawn several times (per REI sales lady) then washed with Tech Wash, looks like new. Thank you for the tips, especially the Tec Clean place.

Glad to hear it.  I always have a small bottle in my laundry room.  Never fails.
