Most likely you are talking about butter stains and these can be very difficult to remove - especially from a delicate fabric.

  • If it is a fresh stain you may be able to remove most of the stain with baby powder or baking soda.
  • If the stain is already set then you might try a dish washing soap (like grease cutting Dawn).
  • Lay garment with stain showing (only one layer of cloth) on clean towel and apply liquid soap. Rub in with a toothbrush and let sit for about 30 minutes.
  • Run under hot to hotter water (whatever your fabric can take) until all soap is removed.
  • It may take more than once to completely remove the stain. Then wash (delicate garment should be washed in a lingerie garment bag) in warm water.
  • Check to be sure stain is gone before placing in dryer.
  • Stains can sometimes be removed if placed in the sun (on top of a clean white towel) by keeping garment wet and moving to different clean places on the towel.
  • Here is a link that gives full directions for any of these treatments.

Depends on type of material, but dawn really is a miracle worker! Just dap a little on, massage it in and let it set for a little while and wash as usual.

There are, I don't know how many, grease spots on the back and front of my Detroit Tiger jersey which is made of polyester and is white what the Old English D in blue and blue trimming. How can I get the grease spots out?

I have had great success using Shout Advanced is the squeeze spray bottle. Spray it, let it sit overnight and then wash it in cold water and see if it takes care of the problem. Do not dry it in a dryer or use hot water until you have removed the stain. Hot anything will set the stain permanently.

How do you remove an oil based stain from a white t shirt?

Apply a liquid dish soap as Dawn to the spot and allow it to soak in. A little water may speed the process. Then launder the shirt. Do not add additional soap as you will have a mountain of suds. It may take a couple of treatments to remove all the oil, but I have always had success.

I use Shout for this type of stain. A cirtus cleaner made from orange peel also works well on Grease stains. Best to treat before laundering if you can.

My husband was given a really nice heavy pair of coveralls, but they are covered everywhere with stains. I'm not sure what kind, but it looks like grease and oil. Is there a product that I can soak them in to get rid of some of the stains? Thanks.

This is a page about removing grease stains on lace clothing. Lace clothing can be rather delicate, making stain removal a bit chancy.
