On this week’s tip Tuesday, I want to share with you a quick tip that my Mom taught me, and that is how to remove grease stains on your clothes. How many of us have had our clothes ruined because of grease stains from eating greasy food, accidentally spilling food on your shirt (my husband tends to do that all the time), or oil splatters while cooking, especially if it gets on a favorite and expensive piece of clothing? Majority of us have I bet. It happens all the time and my grease stains shirts will never see the light of day ever again.
Follow this steps, and you’ll never have to throw away your favorite shirts again! Here’s how:
1) Pour Baby Powder onto the grease spots and rub the powder in.
2) Let it sit for a few minutes and wipe off any excess powder.
3) Rub laundry detergent on top of the spot. Make sure the grease stains are covered by the baby powder and detergent.
4) Wash your shirt in the washing machine as per normal.
And wallah…. no more grease stains!
The quicker you remove the grease stains, the easier it is for the stains to disappear. Just using baby powder on grease spots works too. If you have a grease spot on your clothing for several days, pour as much powder on the spot and let it sit for a few hours. Rub the powder off, and if it’s still fairly visible, repeat the process and the stain would eventually disappear. 🙂
There are other methods on how to remove grease spots, but this is a tried and true trick that I’ve been doing ever since my Mom told me about it 2 years ago. And it works so well.
Happy Tuesday! XOXO
