Say Goodbye to Grease Stains on Clothes

Have you ever had to retire a nice shirt because of a grease stain? Well don't buy another! Dig it out of the "painting day" pile and try this.

Dish soap is formulated to cut grease and works on clothing too. Saturate the stain with liquid dish soap and let it soak in. Once it has soaked through the stained area, wash the item as you normally would. You can throw it in the washer immediately or days later, whatever you would normally do. It doesn't seem to make a difference. Once you've washed the item, check the area that was stained. The stain should be gone or greatly reduced. If some grease remains repeat the process. Each time you repeat the process the stain should lessen.

I've found this trick to be surprisingly successful and it works on all stains that are greasy or oily. Even if you have washed the item before, you can still have success with this method, so give it a try. It certainly beats spending money on new clothes or fancy stain remover!
