removing olive oil stain

I have about 3 stains on my shirt which - I believe- is olive oil (when eating salad) stain. It could be something else but think it is olive oil.

i have tried using several stain removal products and washing but nothing has helped.

it is a cotton shirt.

Any hope of removing them?

what is the best stain removal product I can remove on clothing. I just bought this shirt so....

thanks

if you have already dried them...its most likely set a degreaser allowing it to set on there for 15 mins before laundring my help.

Well, you can try using some clear Dawn dishwashing detergent, which is great for removing greasy and oily stains.
Another thing to try is Janie stick, which is specifically made for grease and oil stains. Amazon sells it, not sure who else:
Amazon.com: Janie Dry Stick Laundry Stain Remover: Apparel
One tip (for future oil stains, too late now) is to sprinkle some baby powder or cornstarch on the stain and let it sit for a few hours to absorb the oils, then brush away.
