How to remove grease stains from your clothes

Whether the stains on the clothes are fresh or set-in, there are several different ways to get rid of them.

- Pour a small amount of baby powder all over the fresh grease stains. The baby powder is fine and it will fill in the crevices between the fibers, and absorb the grease. Leave the baby power on for 10-15 minutes, and brush it off. If the grease is still faintly visible, toss it in the washing machine under cold water.

- Rub some chalk on it as the fine powder easily absorbs the grease and makes it easy to remove. Fill in your grease stain with plain white chalk, or scrape some of the powder over the stain. Allow it to set for 10-15 minutes and then rub it off.

- Cover it up with cornstarch. It works well on fresh grease and oil stains. Pour a small amount of cornstarch on the stain and allow it to set for a quarter of an hour. You can brush it off afterwards, or leave it on and put it in the washing machine.

- Shampoo is used for getting the natural oils and grease out of your hair and scalp, so why not use the same process on your clothing? Pour shampoo directly on to the stain, and use a cloth to vigorously rub it in. Let it set for 10-15 minutes, and then wash it as you would regularly in the washing machine.

- If you're having trouble scrubbing out an oil stain, you can try aloe vera gel on it. Soak your clothing in cool water, and then pour aloe vera gel on to the stain. Rub the gel into the stained spot for a few minutes, and then wash the clothes with cold water.

- Spray on some hair spray. Allow it to soak for 30 minutes, and then put it in the washing machine for a regular wash.-TNN
