For butter and grease stains use Dawn Dish Soap. This works even after you have let the stain set in and tried other ways of getting it out. Pour soap on the stain and take a wet wash cloth and rub the soap in really good. Then Add more soap and rub some more. Finally put more soap on the stain and place the wash rag on the stain and roll the item up with the wash rag still inside. Place this in the washer and wash with medium warm to hot water.
Dawn in the UK?

The tips recommending Dawn Dish soap are many and interesting. But none of them that I have found say where we folk in the UK can obtain Dawn dish soap, yet Proctor & Gamble sell plenty of household cleaning products here.

I followed the directions exactly after a salad dressing bottle splashed all over and a blouse I thought I had to discard came out without any spots at all. Thank you so much.

You will find that any high quality dish soap that is good at cutting grease will do the trick. I use a brand called Sunlight and it works just fine
