Why are grease stains so stubborn?

Grease stains are lipid and absolutely insoluble in water. That is why it is so difficult to get rid of these grease stains with your regular laundry drill.

You will have to do a bit of pre-treatment in this case to get the best results. Don’t worry, we will explain to you the process in some super- simple steps. Just keep following us!

Before we get into some hardcore washing lessons let us give you a sneak-peak of the method that you have to follow to get rid of all the grease stains on your clothing.

The secret to your success is actually hidden in your kitchen. Yes, you heard us right! That Baking Soda bottle on your table can also turn the tables and rescue you. Big Time!

Let’s look at what else we’re gonna need.

  • Baking soda
  • Toothbrush
  • Dishwashing soap
  • A dark-colored towel or an old handkerchief

Follow these steps with the above-mentioned products to get rid of all possible grease stains that you have on your clothing. Let’s take on this mission step by step.

  1. Pre-treatment of grease stains:

 First of all, spread out a dark colored towel below the stain so that it doesn’t get transferred elsewhere. Then bring on some baking soda and dishwashing liquid.

Sprinkle a bit of baking soda on the stain and then drop some dishwashing liquid on it and let that sit on the stain for the next 10-15 minutes at least

  • Scrub it out:

 After letting the solution sit for a while on the fabric, scrub it really well to remove the grease stains that are there on your fabric. But make sure that you also take care of the fabric and don’t go too harsh on it. Use an old toothbrush to get the best results.

  • Give the stain a second shot if it’s fresh:

As you must’ve already read the head, you know what we’re about to tell you. If your stain is a fresh one then your baking soda solution is expected to change its color by now and that is when you start pouring the second round of baking soda in it and keep waiting and repeating the process until the baking soda stops turning brown.

  • Use some dishwashing soap again:

If your stain is fresh, then add some dishwashing soap to it and start scraping it.  If your stain is quite old then cover the stain with baking soda generously and keep scrubbing it with a toothbrush. Wait for another ten to fifteen minutes to let the solution sit on the fabric totally.

  • Use some lukewarm water to wash the garments:

Wash the garments in lukewarm water or hot water to rinse off the leftovers from the grease stains. Although, you must make sure that you use hot water only on the garments that can handle it. 

  • Check before you take the final step:

Well, we all know what the final step in this case could be: drying your garments. We highly recommend checking the stained areas to confirm that the grease stains are gone before you dry them.

Things that you must keep in mind while trying to remove grease stains:

  • Wear clothes that you won’t mind spoiling while trying to remove grease stains because you might get it on them.
  • If possible try and get started with the grease stains removal process as soon as you get it. Because, the more you delay it, the more stubborn the stains get.
  • Until you’re absolutely sure that the grease stains on your apparel are gone, don’t machine dry them. Looks and wet clothes both can be heavily deceptive!

Now that we’ve told you everything that you ever needed to know about grease stains, you just require a fair amount of patience.

Go grab some baking soda and dishwashing soap from your kitchen also with a fair bit of patience and we promise you that you shall never again see the face of those notoriously stubborn grease stains.

The solution to this problem lies right on your kitchen shelf and you must be looking for one all over the internet by now. But, as we’ve said all along, over here we have the best solutions to your problems, all of them simple and budget-friendly.
