Removing Grease Stains
I need some suggestions on how to get truck grease out of my husband's clothes. He drives a semi and has recently got a new truck and now has grease on his clothes. I am not sure how to get the grease out. Please send suggestions.

Hi A.! My hubby is also a truck driver. We usually put some dawn dish soap in with the laundary. It's got that grease cutting agent in it that works wonders on dishes. Not too much though or you'll be over-run by bubbles. Good luck!

Hi, I remember my mom using crisco solid shorting on my dad's clothes to get the grease out. She just smired it on the grease and washed it in hot water. Hope it works for you.

Hi A., I use Shaklee laundry products. My husband is an electrician and does remodeling , and his work clothes are very dirty. I know grease is a hard one -- but I have had success with that too. I was using Shaklee for 5 years and loved them so much I decided to sell them. they are ALL safe and GREEN and economical. here is my website www.shaklee.net/dianeturner/geclean
Let me know if you have any questions. I use the Basic H as a pre-spotter, it is a grease cutter. Nature Bright is amazing, D.

We like to use GREASED LIGHTING it works great for that and other laundry stains. It is a great all around cleaner and it is inexpensive.

go to the local car parts store. Purchase a hand degreaser. There are several that work great and I have used them to remove motor oil from jeans and work shirts. Read that label and make sure they are safe for fabrics.
