How to Remove Bacon Grease From Clothing

Save

Frying bacon can cause grease to splatter onto clothing, resulting in stains. Grease stains can ruin the appearance of clothing. Use a paste of dish washing detergent and baking soda to remove bacon grease from clothing. Before using the paste, apply it to a hidden area of the garment to ensure no discoloration or damage occurs to the fabric. Treat bacon grease stains promptly to prevent the grease from setting into the fabric.
