Getting Grease Stains Out

surrenderedsoul shares a tip that comes in handy during Hanukkah and the holidays. Thank you!!

If your family is anything like mine, then when frying anything a mess is made! I have found over the years the following to hold true in order to get grease stains out of clothing or off of the ceiling. (splatter is a horrible thing!)

To get grease stains out of clothing:

Step 1: Use a papertowel and dab the area to remove as much grease as possible, for freshly stained items. Dab the material on both sides of the garment.

Step 2: Choose a cleaning product. There are two cleaning products which remove grease stains. They are Ivory bar soap or any kind of dishwashing liquid that is made for grease, such as Dawn. If you are using the bar of soap take the soap and wet it slightly. Take the soap and rub it across the stained area and allow it to sit for about five minutes. If you are using the dishwashing liquid, squirt some onto the stain and lightly work the liquid into the stain using your fingertip.
Step 3:Place the item into warm water after using the cleaning product. Allow it to soak about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the stain. After soaking, place the garment into the washer and wash as normal.

Step 4:After washing check the garment for the stain. If the stain is still present repeat steps 2 and 3. If the stain is gone dry normally

To get grease stains off of the ceiling: Magic Eraser works wonders! I cannot say enough good things about this product. OxiClean also works, but I have found sometimes that OxiClean will alter the color of the paint, so unless you are using a true white paint on the walls, I would suggest the Magic Eraser instead.

Hope your Latkes & Jelly Donuts turn out well! Happy Frying.
