Grease Stain Removal Tip

Nothing is more frustrating that dripping butter or sauce on a favorite shirt, only to leave a permanent nasty little grease spot. Here is a simple, yet effective way to remove a greasy stain . . .

Simply Rub plain white chalk into the stain, the launder as usual. The chalk will absorb the grease and it will wash away. Be sure to double check before drying as heavy stains may require 2 applications!

This tip is for fresh stains, if you happen to have an older grease stain that has been laundered only once or twice, you can try this tip instead.

  1. Just a note, this one really works great, I slopped some italian dressing onto a brand new shirt the other day (actually, to be fair, it splashed off the plate when I started pouring!)- blotted the excess dressing off the shirt and then chalked the heck out of it.

    I washed it a day or so later and was thrilled to see that the stain came right out! :stars:

  2. great tip!!! i have also used baby powder as well on grease stains. sprinkle baby powder on the stain and let it sit overnight.

    launder as usual.

  3. one more thing; never use a colored chalk, i didn’t have a white ,but did have a pale yellow, made it worse. :lightning:

  4. will this work on old stains????:shame:. i have some dark colored shirts that i wear to work and didn’t notice the stains!
