How do you get motor grease out of clothes?

Answer

To remove a grease stain from clothing, you need a solvent-based laundry stain removal product. If you do not have a product like this, you can try using laundry detergent instead.

  1. Pre-treat the stain

    Begin by removing any excess grease from around the stain with a paper towel or clean cloth. Then, treat the stained area with a solvent-based stain removal product. Follow the instructions included with the stain removal product about how long to treat the garment before washing. If you don't have a stain removal product, apply liquid laundry detergent to the stain. Work the detergent into the stain by rubbing the area with a clean cloth.

  2. Wash the garment

    Check the garment tag to determine the appropriate temperature for machine washing. Wash the garment in the hottest water recommended using your regular laundry detergent. After washing the garment, check the stained area and repeat the stain removal treatment if necessary. Don't machine dry the garment until you have finished removing the stain.

  3. Dry clean the garment

    If you get a grease stain on a garment that needs to be dry cleaned, take the garment to a professional dry cleaner. Show the cleaners the stain, and tell them what caused it so they can treat it properly. If you use a home dry cleaning product instead, use the stain remover included with the product before continuing the cleaning process.
