DON’T Throw Away Your Shirts With Oil Stains Until You’ve Tried THIS Simple Hack To Remove Them.


We’ve all been there before. You drop a piece of food on your favorite piece of clothing and the result is a nasty grease stain which all but guarantees the demise of the clothing.


Grease is ridiculously hard to get out. You can try and try, and sometimes even get 80% of the stain out, but it’s never good enough. You become stubborn and throw the piece of clothing out altogether, even if it is your favorite.
Here’s an old school trick that many do not know about, and possibly some have forgotten. This is so good for getting stains out that you will never have to worry about having to toss out that favorite shirt or blouse ever again!
1. Here’s what you’ll need: liquid dish soap (Dawn), WD-40, baking soda, an old toothbrush, a piece of cardboard, and Q-tips

2. See that ugly grease stain? Yeah. Gross. Put that piece of cardboard behind that part of the stain and spray the area with WD-40. The cardboard is to prevent the WD-40 from spreading to other parts of your shirt. You can use Q-tips to work the WD-40 into the stain. The WD-40 “reactivates” the oil.

3. Baking soda, I got baking soda… all over the stain. Yeah, pour some baking soda all over the stain. This will absorb the oil.

4. Use the old toothbrush to work the baking soda completely into the stain. You’ll see the baking soda form into clumps.

5. Pour the dish detergent over the baking soda. Work that in with the toothbrush as well. You might want to have a rag handy to wipe off the clumps that will get stuck on your toothbrush.

6. Take out the cardboard and put the shirt in your laundry machine and launder as usual (you can put it in with other clothes). But do NOT put it in the dryer (if some of the stain remains, putting it in the dryer can “bake” the stain in).

7. Ta-da! No more stain! And if you can still see the stain, repeat the process.
