A liberal dose of Clorox 2 on the stains is very effective.

Here is what Olympia says to do and not do:

Jacket outshell -
Pre-treat the entire jacket shell with Simple Green Degreaser. Shout or similar pre-wash sprays are also effective but we find Simple Green gets the best results. Spray a light coat over the surface and let sit for about 15 min. Then work on soiled areas with the soft and rough side of a dish sponge using a mild solution of luke warm water and Woolite. In lieu of hand washing, I often rinse off my gear with a garden hose in our drive way at this point. Pat dry with a towel and let hang dry away from direct heat. The shell can be submerged in a mild solution of Woolite and luke warm water for hand washing if you like. If you go that route, you'll need to remove all the protectors before washing. Machine washing is not recommended as it can break down the 3M Scotchlite trim.

Removable rain liner jacket -
Gently hand wash in a mild solution of Woolite and luke warm water. Pat dry with a towel and let hang dry away from direct heat.

Insulated liner -
OK to machine wash using Woolite on gentle cycle. Dry on gentle cycle - low heat.

Try taking it to a high pressure car wash. Use the floor mat clips on the walls to hang it up. I watched a video on a Facebook post where a guy was cleaning dirty baseball uniforms like this. I cannot guarantee that it works, but the hot soapy high pressure water may do the trick.

Bad idea!
