Motor Oil and Grease Stain Removal Tips for NON - FR Clothing
1. Using a paper towel, blot at the grease stain, using a lifting motion, until no more of the stain comes off on the paper towel. Begin presoaking the stain as soon as possible.

2. Treat and presoak stain for 30-60 minutes before washing. Something like Spray n' Wash, Wisk, Resolve, or a good grease fighting liquid dish soap such as Dawn which works great. (Dishwashing soap is formulated to cut through oil and grease found on dishes, pots and pans, so why not use it on your greasy and oily clothes) Before washing work it into the stain by hand or a soft brush to work the presoak into the fabric and let sit. This will help loosen the stain.

3. After the presoak treatment, wash the item with warm or hot water as per the directions found on the garment care tag using a good detergent.

4. After washing, air dry the fabric by either laying flat or hanging from a clothes line. Inspect the garment, if the stain remains repeat the presoak and wash treatment one more time. DO NOT place into the dryer until you are sure the stain is completely removed. Not all stains can be completely removed. If a stain remains the heat from the dryer will set the stain permanently and it will be virtually impossible to remove at that point.

Remember: Do Not place the garment into the dryer until you attempt to remove the stain first, once set its there for life. Also, always wash work clothes separate from the regular household laundry.
