Have you ever been cooking when grease splatters up on your clothes? And then have you tried to get that grease out of your clothes?
These types of stains can be hard to remove, but hopefully these tips will help save your carpet, furniture and clothing.
To remove grease and oil from carpets - place brown paper (paper bag will work, just make sure it is a plain paper bag with no design) over the grease stain and use a warm iron until the paper bag absorbs the grease.
Apply carpet shampoo to any stain that might still be left behind. Use a sponge and gently but with a little firmness and rub the stained area for a few minutes.
Wipe off the suds with a clean sponge or cloth. Check the stain, if it is still some stain repeat theses steps.
Grease stains can be removed from furniture by sprinkling a heavy layer of talcum powder over the grease stain. Let stand until you see the grease coming through the powder.
After about 10 minutes, you will want to brush the powder off with a cloth. If you still see the stain, repeat.
Grease on clothing can be treated pretty easily. Blot the grease stain with paper towels to remove any excess grease. You will want to dab the stain to keep it from spreading. For non-delicate clothing washing as normal should remove any leftover grease.
For delicate fabrics, you will want to dab with a little eucalyptus oil. Then hand wash or wash in the machine on gentle cycle. If the item is dry clean only, you will want to sponge the eucalyptus oil off with clear warm water before taking to the dry cleaner.
