I have a fold up bike and the way that it is confortable to carry it means that sometimes I get chain oil on my clothes

I have tried various concoctions and prewash treatments (shout and vanush etc), simple scrubbing and zwarfega,to treat the stains and various brands of wash liquid. The stains resist BUT how do I get chain oil of my clothes, any tried and tested ideas out there...

I don't use mineral oil-based chain lube any more. Green Oil washes out if I rub in some laundry liquid and soak it before washing.

Is there a way of shielding your clothing from the chain? Or wearing a black item?

Some water soluble de-greaser might work. I'd try it on a non-conspicuous area first though.
