How To Remove Grease Stains From Clothes

Remove grease stain

Stains some people more than others. Whether your spills are unexpected or routine, Dawn can eliminate them from cotton and poly cotton fabric. Just follow these simple steps for removing grease stains and saving face.

1. Apply Dawn.

Treat the soiled cotton/poly cotton fabric with a small squirt of Dawn®, about the size of a button. Anything more than a teaspoon will cause excess suds. That’s great for people who want a soap party in the laundry room, but not so great for everyone else.

2. Cover Up.

Use your fingers to rub Dawn over the entire stained area and allow a few minutes to let the soap set. The cleaning agents in Dawn grab and hold grease until the stain is washed away in the rinse cycle.

3. Wash Away The Stain.

Toss the stained garment into the washing machine with similar items and wash normally with Tide. In the unlikely event the stain does not come out, do not try to pre-treat the soiled area twice.
