Summary: Stains in wool clothing or carpets can be removed by pre-conditioning . Many stains, including chocolate, beer, and ice cream, can be cleaned with a mixture of soft detergent and white vinegar in warm water. Gravy and fruit juice can be removed with lukewarm water. Burn marks can be removed with a solution of hydrogen peroxide and cold water. For oils and grease, use a cloth soaked in vinegar,good luck.

Hmm... Wool slacks in Miami? Anyway, anytime I get grease from food on my clothing I pretreat with dish detergent. It works like a charm. Just a dab, then I rub lightly with my finger.
