Not sure how natural it is but my mum used to use the hand cleaning gel on my brothers stuff (he worked in the workshop of a bike repair place)

 

this is the one we used to have

I would do dish detergent (dawn, like you said).  I've had set in oil stains and I put dish soap on it and used a toothbrush to scrub it in, then threw it in the wash like normal (if it's a bad oil/grease spot then I will let it sit for a few minutes first) and they always come out.  Good luck!!
