11 Fantastic Methods to Remove Grease Stains

 Grease stains out of clothes can be notoriously difficult to remove, but luckily, there are plenty of wonderful methods that can be used to remove those pesky stains. Below you will find 11 such methods that will ensure grease stains never bother you again.
 
1. Dish Soap and Hot Water

Directions:

1. Cover the backside of the grease stain with dish soap. Rub it in slightly and then use large amounts of detergent. Leave it on for a couple of minutes.

2. Blast the grease stains with hot water. If you happen to have a high-pressure washer, throw it in there. If you don’t, put it under a powerful shower for about 20 seconds.

3. Blot the grease stains with a paper towel. If any of the stain is still left, hopefully, it can be lifted out by a slight pressing. Do not rub, as this will rub the grease back in.

4. If the grease stain is still present, repeat step 1, scrub with a brush, add stain remover, and then place in the washing machine.

2. Baking Soda and Water

Directions:

1. Create a paste using baking soda and water. Apply to the stain and let it rest until it’s entirely dry.

2. Use a brush to remove the paste from your clothing. Check to see if the grease has been removed. If not, move on to step 3.

3. Give it another soap treatment by applying grease-fighting dish soap to the stain, then soak it in warm water for 20 minutes. Once the stain has gone, dry your clothes as normal.

3. Shampoo

Directions:

1. Pour some shampoo onto the grease stains and then use a soft cloth to gently rub it in.

2. Leave it for 15 minutes, then wash off as normal.

3. Leave your clothing to air-dry.

4. Chalk 

Directions:

1. Scrape some chalk powder over the grease spot and leave for 15 minutes.

2. Rinse the chalk off. If the stain is still visible, wash with cold water. A dry cycle in the washing machine will finish the job, and should remove all of the stain.

 

5. Aloe Vera Gel

Directions:

1. Soak your clothes in cool water and then apply 100% aloe vera gel to the grease stain.

2. Rub the gel in for a couple of minutes and then wash off with some cold water.

6. Baby Powder

Direction:

1. Blot away as much of the stain as you can by using a paper towel.

2. Cover what’s left of the stain with some baby powder. If you do not have any baby powder, consider using other absorbents such as cornstarch and salt.

3. Remove the baby powder from the stain using a paper towel.

4. Add a small amount of detergent and water to the stain. When the detergent foams up, use an old toothbrush to rub the stain in circular motions. This should be done from both sides of the clothing.

5. Wash the clothing with laundry detergent. Allow it to air-dry as drying in a tumble-dryer can cause any lingering grease stains to set in your clothing.

7. Salt and Alcohol

Directions:

1. Mix some salt with rubbing alcohol (1:3 ratio), and then pour this mixture onto the grease stain.

2. Let the solution sit on the stain for around 15 minutes.

3. Wash your clothes as usual.

8. Coca-Cola 

Directions:

1. Pour some cola on the stain and leave it here for around 2 hours.

2. Wash in the washing machine, and leave the clothing to air-dry.

9. Cheese-Whiz

Directions:

1. Coat the grease stain in a thick layer of cheese-whiz.

2. Rub it in using your fingers, and then place it in the washing machine for a single wash.

10. Lestoil

Directions:

1. Pour some lestoil onto the grease stain and leave it for 30 minutes.

2. Wash your clothes in the washing machine on a cold-water cycle.

3. If you’re trying to remove grease from multiple clothes, simply add some lestoil in with your washing machine soap.

11. Cornstarch and Vinegar

Directions:

1. Pour some cornstarch over the stains and leave for 30 minutes. Then brush off.

2. Dip a microfiber cloth into some vinegar, and slightly rub the grease stains until they have disappeared.

3. Leave to air-dry.
