Grease-fighting dish soap is the key to removing set in grease stains.

Have you washed an article of clothing only to see a grease stain that never goes away? Once the clothing is dry, you may think all hope is lost. But it's not!

Step 1

Take the dry item and clearly identify the area(s) that have grease stains.

Step 2

Squirt a little bit of the grease fighting dish soap on to the affected area.

Step 3

Depending on the type of material, work the soap into the fabric. If it's a tough material such as denim, scrub it a little with a sponge. If it's a more delicate cloth such as cotton, massage it in gently with your fingers.

Step 4

Leave the item sitting for 30 minutes or so. This gives the soap time to work its way into the fibers affected by the grease stain.

Step 5

Launder as normal. Once the item is washed and dried, the grease stain should no longer be visible.
