Ever had an annoying grease stain on your shirt or pants? Of course, you have, almost everybody has had a grease or oil stain on their clothes, and it’s pretty annoying to deal with. There are many methods on how to get grease stains out of clothes but only a few of them really works. Today I am going to show you how to get grease out of your clothes using the best methods.
If you know anything about cleaning you’ll not be surprised that baking soda is great at removing tough stains. So it makes sense that baking soda can remove grease and oil stains as well.
To remove grease stains from your clothes with baking soda you first need to get a small dish of warm water. Then sprinkle some of the baking soda onto the grease stain. Dip a toothbrush into the warm water and rub it all over the baking soda. Make sure to rub the baking soda all over the grease stains. Keep doing this until the stain starts to disappear, then place the clothes in the washer.
This is another great way of removing grease stains from any clothing. The best dish soap that’s good for this is Dawn. Dawn is excellent at removing grease from almost anything. There are two ways in which you can use dawn dish soap to remove grease from your clothes, they are both similar but somewhat different.
To get rid of grease out of your clothes using dish soap you need to do the following:
- Squirt a few drops of dish soap onto the greasy area of the garment and use your fingers to rub it in.
- Then use a wet toothbrush to gently scrub the grease out of the garment.
- After doing this you should rinse and place the shirt inside the washing machine.
- (optional) or you can get a large bucket of warm water and add your favorite laundry detergent to it.
- Then place the garment into the bucket of water and let it soak for 1-2 hours.
- After doing that you should place it in the dryer.
While I don’t believe that wd-40 will work as best as the other methods on this list I still do believe that you should at least try it.
To get rid of grease or oil stains using wd-40 you need to spray the grease with wd-40 and use a damp cloth to rub the stained area. Then place the clothing into the washer. If the garment still has the grease stain on it then maybe you should try a different method that’s on this list.
Another issue with using wd-40 on clothes is that while it will get rid of the grease stains, you’ll still have the wd-40 residue on the clothes.
Salt and stain remover
This might be the weirdest method in this article but you should definitely try it because it might be the most effective. For this method what you want to do is to dampen the grease/oil-stained area of the clothes with water and then sprinkle salt all over the stained area. Let the salt absorb the grease for around 3-5 minutes. Then spray the grease with this stain remover. After spraying the garment, you should place it in the washer and let it wash with the warmest water option.
Doing this will remove all the grease stains that were on the garment.
While I do believe that all of these methods will definitely get rid of grease stains, I still recommend only trying the wd-40 method last as the rest are way more effective.
