Instead of using extra laundry detergent to pre-treat, I turned to our old school friend – white chalk. Simply rub onto greasy stains and the chalk powder will absorb the grease, making the stain easily removable by the laundry soap in the wash.
It might sound silly, but it’s worked wonders for everything from lipstick to bacon grease!
Keeping chalk on hand (or any white, absorbing powder—baking soda or corn starch are popular solutions as well) is a great way to nip these stains in the bud. Just make sure you’ve got it ready at all times, because once that stain sets, no amount of chalk will save you. Got any of your own grease stain-removing tips? Share them with us in the comments.
