Oil and grease stains on your clothes and tablecloths are always a problem. You try everything but nothing seems to completely eliminate them from your favorite materials. You’ve spent so much money on those trendy clothes and now you have to say goodbye to wearing them, just because of those dirty, ugly and oily stains!
You probably stained your favorite blouse, apron or tablecloth with grease or oil stain. Are you willing to get rid of these stains quickly? It is obvious that these stains may ruin your day, but read further, if you want to find out the 3 quickest methods to get rid of grease and oil stains from your clothes.
1. Talcum powder, flour, starch and baking soda are all great ingredients for this purpose. You simply need to apply the powder directly on the grease or oil stain and leave it on your clothes to act for 5 to 10 minutes, so that the powder could efficiently absorb fat. The powder that remained and hasn’t been absorbed needs to be removed with a brush or by shaking the material. Once done, apply liquid detergent with stain removing properties on the same area and leave the detergent act for another 5 minutes. Rinse your clothes with warm water, after the 5 minutes have passed. If you notice that the stain or grease has not been completely removed, repeat this process.
2. You may have white chalk at home. If you do, you are encouraged to use it with confidence for grease and oil stain removal purposes. You need to cover the entire stained area with chalk and leave it act for minimum 5 minutes. Once done, put your clothes directly in the washing machine. This trick will help you to eliminate the most common oil and grease stains from all of your clothes, such as the ones on the collar, wrists and elbows.
3. Dishwashing detergent is also helpful for eliminating oil and grease stains from your clothes and favorite tablecloths. Apply this detergent directly on the stained area. If you are using colored dishwashing detergent, make sure that you first dilute it with water before applying it on the stained material. Leave the detergent to act for approximately 2 to 3 minutes and then rub the stain with a brush. Once done, you need to prepare a mixture that consists of 1/3 of vinegar and 2/3 of water. You will have to rinse your material with the prepared solution. You can finally place your stained clothes directly in the washing machine.
