How To Remove A Grease Stains From Clothing
Sitting at a nice restaurant looking all snazzy in your new Hollister t-shirt and the worse happens, greasy jumbo burger grease drips onto your shirt as you take your first bite. The horror! But you suddenly remember how to treat the grease and use the talcum powder you keep in your purse. Your evening is saved an so is your new t-shirt!
Not being able to remove grease stains from clothing can be costly and embarrassing. But how do we deal with it. If you don't know how to handle this problem you can always button up your sweater to hide your stains.
But in reality you shirt or favorite tee will become the home shirt never to be seen in public again. Well there are some tricks that can save you but take time and sweat.
If you are in public and have a grease stain, you can put talcum powder on it to absorb the stain. Be sure to blot up excess oils first with paper towel first.(Yes you will have to carry a trial size of talcum power. I'm sure you've carried worse!)
What You Will Need To Remove Grease Stains
- talcum powder
- paper towels/cloth
After about 10 minutes use a dry soft and fluffy clothe to brush of the powder. This same treatment can be used on furniture.
How To Remove Grease Stains From Other Fabric
If you are home you can place a piece of brown paper bag or towel over the grease spot and use the tip of a warm iron to help absorb the stain.
When you wash your clothe any stain left should be removed. But you would have stopped more damage by treating the stain quickly. For un-washable fabrics pre-treat them with fabric protection spray you can find at your nearest drug store before an accident can happen.
What about candle wax?
If you have greasy wax that's the problem, you may want to try rubbing a little mild liquid detergent first before placing an absorbent cloth such as an old t-shirt before using a warm iron to melt the wax. I also did this for wax on a carpet without the detergent. Just keep ironing on a clean section of the t shirt until it is all gone. Brush carpet afterward.
There are also liquid stain removers you can use on carpets and furniture for other questionable stains like red wine stains. But knowing how to remove stains like red wine and grease stains will come in handy when accidents happen.
The one thing to remember is a grease stain has already ruined your clothe, so it should be no hesitation before trying to repair the damage.
Hopefully these tips to remove grease from clothe help in an amazing way. Good Luck and happy stain removal!
