Soak them in hand-hot saturated oxalic acid solution for about 20 minutes before washing and tumble-drying.

For those who consider this treatment far too ferocious I suggest reading the makers' wahing instructions.

By the way did you know that Douglas Gill are dropping Gore-tex?

Also a little wash in proofing (grangers etc) works wonders to get the water rolling off again since the acid will have removed all the dressing from the fabric

Charles, do you have shares in a company making Oxalic Acid?

Re: Or perhaps manufacturer of Oilies?

Sounds a bit strong to me. I think I'll stick to a very light wash in the washing machine.

Sneak them in when partner is out. Use a delicates programme and a gentle detergent.
