How to get grease stains out of clothes

  • MAC

    One of my husband’s dress shirts has a nasty grease stain. I am going to try the dish soap. Hope I am as successful as you were.

      You’ll have to let me know if it works for you!

    It’s the dish soap that does it! Even with REALLY old, dried-in-the-dryer-many-times grease stains, it still gets it out. You put some directly on the spot and squeeze it with your fingers to make sure it really penetrates the fabric fully, then wait a few minutes, 5 or so, not long enough for it to dry, and wash as normal. Blue Dawn works the best but any dish soap will do a decent job. For a front loader, you should not put dish soap directly into the machine because the bubbles can mess up the internal sensors, but spot treating directly on the garment is just fine :).
