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. #laundrytips Removal Grease, Old Schools, Remember This, Laundry Detergent, White Chalk, Greasy Stained, Grease Stained, Simply Rubs, Greas Stained

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.
**Grease stain removal** Put dish soap w/oxy on the stains & rub in to the fabric. Let it soak in hot water for 15 min. Wash as normal & let it air dry (in case the stains didn't come out). If the grease stain is still there after washing and drying, you'll need to "reactivate" the grease stain by spraying it with WD 40 (sounds counter intuitive, right?), then putting Dawn soap on it, let it sit for a few minutes, rub the spot with an old toothbrush and then wash. Comes right out.
Instead of using extra laundry detergent to pre-treat, 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.
Stop throwing out clothing because of grease stains you think will never come out. Or stop spending money or more expensive pre-treaters. Use this simple trick to save money by saving your clothing!
