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 hot water. If any residue or oil is left behind, apply Stain Solution .

Pour water on the stain: For added cleaning power, pour boiling water from a kettle onto the affected area. (Pour from a safe height so the water won’t splash on you.) The force of the pouring water helps to do the work. You can also use hot water from a faucet set to its highest water pressure output.

Soak up to 30 minutes: Soak the item in a basin filled with hot water and 1 capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative.

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

Remove odors: Stains and odor often go hand in hand. Soak the item in a basin of hot water mixed with ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar.

Launder the item: Wash according to our instructions.
