Removing Grease Stains from Clothing

How do you remove black grease from clothing after it has gone through the washer and dryer several times (tried several ways to remove)?

Make paper towel folded "pads", to use on top and underneath. Spray WD 40 on several q-tips, then dot the spot and immediately rub with clean q-tips and blot off and on with a "pad". If it begins to show on the q-tip or towels, it's working, and you should do this with new "pads" or new absorbing locations on the underneath pad, using new q-tips as well, over and over, until gone. Then, with still more "pads", use alcohol to remove the WD 40 main residue, and then Dawn dripped directly to the spot and area, when finished with all of the above, and wash as normal AGAIN in washer. It should work for you.


Don't use too much WD 40 because it has an odor, but not too bad if used in drops. Do NOT spray directly to your garment. It's strong enough to do the job on q-tips, if you carefully "wet" the spot ONLY and do not rub too widely, checking and changing the pads frequently. Good luck and God bless your hands as you follow this suggestion. : ) (09/28/2006)

I can't believe it!! I used Pepsi that had been open in the refrig all night (I don't know if that had anything to do with it) and a Q-tip. For various stubborness, I rubbed some with Q-tips right away, some I let it sit for a minute or two, and some I added a dab of Dawn and used the Q-tip. All gone! I'm so excited!!! (11/08/2006)

i got some kitchen grease on my hoodie and its been there quite a while and im wondering how to get it out.

(b)Editor's Note:(/b) Try rubbing some Dawn into the spot, then wash again. It's best not to dry it (at least in a heated dryer) until you are sure the stain is out. (03/07/2007)
