Instead of using extra laundry detergent to pre-treat, instead we turn 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
Need to remember this ... so many clothes I thought were ruined... Chalk will remove grease stains from clothes. Simply rub the stain with chalk, then toss in the wash as normal.
