Greasy food is perfect when you need comfort food, but there is nothing comforting about grease stains on clothes. Treat grease stains easily, thanks to these helpful tips from Tide, and enjoy your meal!
Immediately:If possible, rinse the stain immediately with cold water. Gently rub dish soap onto the stain to help loosen it, and then rinse with water. Repeat if necessary.
Pre-treat:To remove grease stains from clothes, gently apply and rub a detergent, such as Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid, directly to the grease stain. Saturate the stained area, and let it sit for a few minutes.
Dose:Use the cap to ensure you use the right amount of Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid detergent, and pour it into the detergent dispenser if you have an HE machine, or directly into the drum before loading the clothes if you have a non-HE machine.
Load:Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washer with other items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.
Wash:Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
Unload:When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the grease stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
