If you know me well then you know I cook all of my meals, every day.
Well, last week I was cooking up a huge pot of meat stock (an essential for making lunch-time soups), and succeeded in spilling pure fat on a favored pair of jeans.
I immediately sprayed the spot with a pre-treat solution, and threw them into the washing machine. I air-dried them in case the stain wasn't quite gone once dry.
Alas, the stain was still there, bright as day. I was frustrated. I had my tasty meat stock, but had ruined another article of clothing with a grease stain. I threw the jeans into my closet and tried my best to forget about them.
Three days later I was pouring dish washing liquid onto the stain. I'd looked at a bunch of advice on removing grease stains from clothes, and this one suggestion kept popping up on blog after blog after blog. I figured the jeans couldn't anymore ruined than they already were. So, after saturating the stain in Palmolive dish liquid and allowing it to sit for 30 minutes I threw the jeans back into the washing machine, and took the risk of drying them in dryer.
And, Voila! The stain is gone. My jeans are back to good-as-new. And my mood is vastly improved now that I have a method to remove grease stains from clothes.
I just had to share the good news, hoping it might help you one day too.
