Get some Rit dye the color of the coat and follow directions. It is better than trying to remove it because the stain has already changed the color of the coat.

I don't know if this will work, but I have used this for several kinds of stains....If you buy oxi-clean powder, and follow the instructions and soak the clothing in the oxi-clean water for several hours....usually gets most stuff out!! Have used for blood stains, wine stains, red dye stains etc

if the stains were from blood , like meat, you likely have set them in by using hot water, i doubt it will ever come out., if it was greasy stains try goof off or oops and add oxy clean to the water.

for really tough stains, i soak my clothes overnight in oxyclean. don't know whether this will help with your coats because it sounds like they have set-in cooking oils/grease. those types of stains are more difficult to deal with and may require extra washings. here are a couple of websites with some ideas. HTH!

It really depends on what the stains are. My best friend is a chef and would pretreat his coats as soon as he got home. This probably doesn't help you now, but try the link below, it's worked for me. Good luck.
