castor oil stain removal

I have a bunch of white "clima-cool" fabric shirts that have dark castor oil stain on them. Any ideas on how to remove the stain and save the shirts?

If stains are old and shirts have been through dryer, it's not likely that you will have much success in stain removal attempts. Stains are best treated when fresh. Fresh castor oil stains can be flushed with rubbing alcohol, denatured alcohol, or dry cleaning solvent. Then, pretreat with heavy duty liquid laundry detergent and let set. Wash in hottest water allowable for fabric along with detergent and one cup of ammonia. Repeat steps if needed.
