      Grease stains-use Dawn. I had no luck using the WD40 method below. I won't try it a 3rd time. A pinner wrote: If the grease stain is still there after washing and drying, reactivate grease stain w WD40 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! Another pinner wrote: Lestoil or blue Dawn, mixed w baking soda. make paste, dampen spot you’re applying to, apply paste, scrub w wet toothbrush. let sit overnight.

      Dawn dish soap and WD40 to get out set in grease stains. This worked on a shirt that had been washed and dried at least four times. The grease stains were completely set in. It only took one wash with the WD40 and Dawn and the stains are gone (except for one tiny one that I simply missed treating).
