Fish Grease Stain on Tennis Shoes

0 0EmailPrintFollow

How do you get a fish grease stain out of a pair of Nike Air Max Skyline shoes? They are metallic silver/black and grey. My husband just bought these shoes. I asked him to pour out some old fish grease and he got it on the front of the shoes. Hope you can help me.

If it's a grease, it needs a degreaser. I suggest Dawn detergent or similar, put drops on the spots and wait a few minutes. If this doesn't rinse them out, then I would immerse the shoes toe down in a bucket of hot water with plenty of degreasing detergent. Another good degreaser is 409, I rely on it for grease.

You can use Talcum powder or even baby powder and brush it in. Brush off. Repeat this until gone. I once got TAR out of a new carpet doing this though it took quite a time.
