A question from Cris:
Help – an anyone tell me how to get food grease stains out of solid color knit shirts? I get those on all my shirts and nothing seems to work.
The best way to remove grease stains from clothes is to do it before they are washed and dried. Once clothes with grease stains have been dried the stain can be impossible to remove.
To remove a grease stain squirt some Dawn dish soap directly on the stain. I use the blue bottle of Dawn, nothing fancy just the basic type. Let the dish soap sit on the stain for a half hour or more. Wash in cold water with your laundry.
When the wash cycle is finished check the stain to see if it is gone. If not repeat with the dish soap method. Do not dry the clothes in the dryer if the stain is still there.
Often this will remove the stain, but occasionally the stain is set in and cannot be removed.
