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.
Dawn dish soap is a miracle! I've always have used this. My dad taught me this method. You can use Dawn alone on men's shirts for the collar. It gets out sweaty grime and stiffens the collar to new! THE best stain remover ever. Even for old stains. Every mom needs this recipe - 2 parts hydrogen peroxide, 1/2 part baking soda and 1 part dish detergent

Every month or two, give the pipes a good preventative cleaning to keep them clear of grease, oil, and hair clogs. Pour 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain, followed by 1/2 cup white vinegar. The mixture will foam up. Let stand for a few minutes to dissolve fatty acids, then pour boiling water down the drain to wash out any clogs.
