Food, Grease, and Oil: Wool

How to treat grease stains on wool

The Solution

Food for thought: food grease and cooking oil add flavor, but the spots and smudges that end up on our clothes, aprons, and towels are not so appetizing. It?s all right; we?re here to save your bacon. We?ve cooked up a recipe that can remove grease-based and oil-based kitchen chaos, such as dressing, margarine, peanut butter, mayonnaise, canola oil, PAM, and everything in between.

Apply product: Our Wash & Stain Bar is ideal for removing grease-based stains.

Work the stain: Create a lather using the soap and gently work it into the material. Make sure to use cool to warm water. If any residue or oil is left behind, apply Stain Solution .

Pour water on the stain: For added cleaning power, put the affected area under the faucet and let the pressure of the cool to warm water help work the stain.

Reapply or repeat as needed: If the stain is not completely gone, repeat this process until satisfied.

Soak up to 30 minutes: Soak the item in a basin filled with cool to warm water. To remove odors, add � cup of Scented Vinegar to the basin. Launder the item: Wash according to instructions.
