Oil and grease stains in fabric can cause ugly marks. Fortunately, they don't need to be very difficult to get out of your clothes.

Even bar soap or liquid hand soap will work to help lift the stain if you are not at home, but need to treat the stain quickly to prevent it from setting into the fabric. If you do accidentally set the stain, try spraying the stained area with WD 40, waiting a few minutes, and then rubbing in dish detergent before putting the garment back into the wash. You could also try pre-treating the stain with lighter fluid. Spray the stain with lighter fluid, and then put it into the wash. Be careful not to have any open flames nearby however.

Now you have an oil free shirt that you can use over and over again. If you've enjoyed this tip, you will find many more at Tips.Net. Be sure to visit today.
