Homemade Laundry Grease Stain Remover

Laundry has so many kinds of stains. Today, I am sharing my homemade laundry grease stain remover. This tip mainly comes from my hubby. They wear special shirts at work and were told to use this on the grease stains. So I tried it and it works great. That way I can work the stain as I squeeze but any old toothbrush or scrub brush will work.

All you need is Dawn dish soap but it must be Dawn. Take a small amount and rub well into the grease stain, the sooner the better. When someone gets a stain on their clothes in the house I always say hurry take that off and let me deal with that stain. Hey, clothes are expensive. Let sit for about 30 minutes. Then take your normal stain remover and spray well over the spot and scrub with an old toothbrush or soft scrub brush.  I keep my homemade grease stain remover in an old stain remover bottle with a scrubby top.

That way I can work the stain as I squeeze but any old toothbrush or scrub brush will work.Toss in the wash as usual. You can use my recipe for regular homemade laundry stain remover.


  1. I needed this tip, I have a shirt with some grease stains on it and was wondering how to get them out. I usually use Fels Naptha soap, but this is one of my better tops and I was kind of afraid to scrub too hard. I even have Dawn! Thanks:>)

  2. This is such a great idea!

    Thanks for joining the Link Up this week!

  3. I found "zout" will take anything out fast, and cold water always...

  4. ...great tip .... I think the best aid to stain removal is speed ... like you said..'Get it off quick so I can treat it'. Don't let it dry.....

  7. I use Dawn for spots that have been through the washer and dryer already and it still works. Dawn is an amazing spot remover. I swear by it.

  8. So far I have been lucky my homemade laundry soap gets out stains. (blood,grease, and jet fuel.)
