Removing grease from clothing
|The stains might be a little hard to see, but they are there.|
I recently bought a new shirt and then stupidly cooked some chicken nuggets on the stove while wearing it. The grease from the frying pan splattered all over my front and I was so pissed at myself I threw the shirt on the floor. Of course it accidentally got washed and I was even more upset with myself for setting the stain before I was able to try and treat it.
After many hours of remorse and a little bit of time on Pinterest, I found this little gem that removes set in grease stains. Check it out.
What you will need:
A flat surface
Place your piece of clothing on a flat surface and sprinkle a good amount of baking soda on the affected area. I left the powder on there over night because I wasn't sure how long it would take to work.
The baking soda should start to ball up from sucking the grease out of your garment. :)
Dust off the powder. I dumped it in the sink. There were little white spots where the grease stains were. I'm not sure if this was normal, but the powder rubbed off when I touched it with my fingers.
I put my shirt in the wash and hung it to dry. I wouldn't suggest putting it in the dryer until you are sure the stains are gone. Don't want to double bake them.
If you've tried this experiment and its worked or hasn't worked for you, I would love to hear from you. Or if you know of another great way to remove set in grease stains from clothing send me an email at shendersonphoto(@)gmail.com
