I just got black grease from our garage door on my new nylon/down ski jacket.
How do I get it off?
Thanks so much!
There are a few ways you can remove the grease from your jacket.
First, use a paper towel to blot the grease. Afterwards, cover the stain with baby powder. Let it sit on the stain for a few minutes. Then scrape the baby powder away using a spoon. Now, work some liquid soap into the stain using your hands. Finally, rub the stain using an old toothbrush on both side of the stain. Now, wash your garment in the machine and allow it to hang dry. Do not dry this in a dryer.
Second, use a dish detergent that has a grease fighting agent such as Dawn. Wet the stain with water or ammonia and apply the soap. Rub the soap in until it starts to foam up. Rub the stain with an old toothbrush. Rinse the area with water and again rinse the area with vinegar.
Third, mix one part vinegar with two parts water and soak your stain in the solution. Afterwards, rinse with vinegar.
Fourth, you can also try a stain remover, WD-40 or lighter fluid. Apply to the stain and let sit for 20 minutes. Afterwards, soak the garment in warm water to remove these agents.
