Super Stubborn Grease Stain Remover

How many times do you think I washed my daughter’s dress trying to get these grease stains out? Too bad I don’t have an answer for you. The answer is I washed it so many times I lost count. I used stain sticks, stain sprays, everything I could think of to no avail. I find it a satisfying challenge to get stains out. So this was driving me nuts. And I had just about given up. In fact, you will notice that in the top photo the dress is crazy wrinkled. That is because it had been sitting in a wadded up ball on top of my dryer. I had given up on it, but just couldn’t bring myself to throw one of my daughter’s favorite dresses away. Then I saw this pin. It said underneath it: “Will take the stains out of almost ANYTHING…even if it is an old one. REALLY WORKS!!” I rubbed my chin and thought, hmmm. I have a the perfect thing to test this out on. Getting out a grease stain that has been washed and dried multiple times is quite a bold claim. As you can see, this Super Stubborn Grease Stain Remover lives up to it’s claims. The dress has been rescued and my stain removal prowess remains intact.This gets stubborn stains out fast. I thought I was going to have to through this dress away!

Thank you to Modern Day Moms for this terrific formula of 1 part Dawn Dishwashing Liquid (the original blue kind) and 2 parts hydrogen peroxide. If you would like to make enough to store for future laundry needs ,I suggest purchasing hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle. Hydrogen peroxide comes in a dark container because it loses effectiveness when exposed to the light. This spray bottle works perfectly for this since it is manufactured specifically for hydrogen peroxide. Bring on your worst stains and give it a try!This REALLY works.This is the perfect bottle for storing this Super Stubborn Stain Remover MadeFromPinterest.netIf you are looking for a way to get icky mildew smells out of your towels, try this.Remove Mildew From Towels Cover Photo 1

  1. Awesome! This is definitely a pin worth pinning! I’ve got some grease on a shirt I’m going to try this on.

  2. Boy, do I need this hint for the hubby’s shirts. How everything ends up on his shirt front is beyond me.

    • My hubby has that issue too. So do I for that matter. Maybe I should advertise this as “Saving shirts and marriages!” Hahaha!

  3. Stains are an every day problem in our house. I think fabrics are being made so cheap, from who knows what, the usual stain fighters dont work anymore. I am certainly going to try this, thanks.

  4. Thank you for this! Repinned! Found you on the Pin Junkie Friday Link Party. Following you via Pinterest! Would love for you to visit my blog…

    • Thank you so much for pinning, AnnMarie. I went to your site and saw the lovely pillows you made your daughter’s for Mother’s Day. Great way to hold and display precious keepsakes. Thanks for visiting us!

  5. Awesome! Definitely pinning this one – thanks so much for sharing it at LWSL this week!

  6. This is awesome! I just found some grease stains on one of my shirts and I’m gonna try this on them. Thanks!

  7. Thanks for sharing Aunt Sherri! I will definitely be testing this out on all my baby poop stains!!! (From my baby…haha)

    • Sure love you Brittany. I am glad it is working for others as well as me. Check out this comment from Facebook: “O.K. Three Sisters, I have to say thank you for the stain remover tip ( Hydrogen peroxide and dawn dish soap) Im a nurse and some how got A&D ointment down the front of a colored uniform scrub top!I had already washed and dried it before realizing it was there. From experience, i thought, well that top is ruined!! The stain remover took it right out! Thank you so much!!!”
      Awesome, right?

  8. I am wild about homemade anything for cleaning! Great post! Thanks for sharing at Weekend Potluck. Pinning!

  9. So the hydrogen peroxide doesn’t bleach your clothing?

    • Especially on finer clothing I would recommend testing it in an inconspicuous spot, but I have not had it bleach anything. It is has worked on every grease stain I have used it on. Best of luck with your laundry!

    • It worked ob my grease stains but not any other stain. :(

      • Tricia, I agree, this works well on grease stains. I have had it work on other stains, but not everything. I love it for grease stains, though. It has saved some clothing from going into the garbage when nothing else would work! Sorry it didn’t work on everything. Thanks for letting us know about your results.

  10. Caitlyn Thomas says:

    Do you let it sit in for awhile or scrub it then wash it or what?

    • I just spray it on any grease stains and throw it in. That is what is great. No scrubbing, no waiting. Simple, easy, effective. Enjoy!

  11. Can you use other kibds of dushwashing liquid?

    • This is the only brand I have used, but I am sure you could. Thanks for asking. Good Luck with it Munira.

  12. The stain got much worse when I
    used this!!!??????

    • I am so sorry to hear this didn’t work for you. I have been using it on all my grease stains for months and it works for me every time! I absolutely love it.

  13. I have white shirt that my husband went mudden in a dune buggy. What do you recemend

    • I would try this solution first after washing out as much as I could by hand. Make sure to check it before you put it in the dryer. The dryer may set the stain, and it may take several washings to get this clean. If it does not come clean, you may need to try straight hydrogen peroxide or bleach. I hope you are able to save the shirt Chris, otherwise, consider it a great reminder of a good time!
