Secret to removing grease stains naturally
Lay your shirt/apron/pants out & squeeze a little dish soap on the grease stains. Rub the soap into the grease with a little gumption to really work it into the fabric. If it’s a delicate fabric, be a bit more gentle.
I usually let it sit for an hour, brush the chalk off, then throw it in the washing machine. I like the air dry the clothes after to make sure I got all the grease out & retreat if it didn’t come out the first time. I’ve only had to do this once ever and it’s because I missed spots the first time.
For my next trick, I remove years of grime & general grossness from 20 year old couches. Professionals couldn’t even get it clean.
