Greasy stains must be properly treated before washing

Grease stains on clothes are among the most persistent. That's why you need to take action as soon as possible if you spill grease on your clothes. If the stain is old, it can also be removed with a little patience, the right product, and some effort.

OBOZREVATEL learned about life hacks in this regard. Thus, we share the most effective ones.

When the stain is fresh

The main task when you have just found a stain is to collect as much fat as possible without rubbing it deep into the fabric fibers. Paper towels or napkins can help you do this. Apply them to the stained area as many times as necessary until the paper is no longer saturated with grease. Do not rub the stain in any way. When the grease is no longer absorbed by the fabric, you can start cleaning.

Cleaning with dishwashing liquid and vinegar

Dishwashing liquid and white vinegar are good at dissolving grease, so they can be used to remove this type of stain. But before you start cleaning, try both products on an inconspicuous spot on the item. You need to make sure that they do not destroy the dye and do not harm the fabric.

If everything is fine, you can proceed to the cleaning process. Take a dishwashing liquid (preferably colorless so that the dye does not remain in the fibers), squeeze out a drop, apply it to the stain, and gently wind it into the fabric with your fingers. Leave the product on for 5 minutes and then wash it off with vinegar. After that, rinse the item in cool water and wash it in the usual way. If necessary, the entire procedure can be repeated.

Removing old grease stains

Baking soda will help to remove old grease. To prepare the cleaning mixture, take eight tablespoons of the product and mix it with half a glass of water. The resulting paste-like substance should be applied to the stain and left for an hour. After that, the soda is removed from the item and washed in a way suitable for the fabric.
