One problem with cooking and eating a lot of butter, coconut oil, bacon grease, etc. is you have a tendency to stain up your clothing. Or, at least, I do. Sure, this could be avoided by wearing an apron, or old clothing when cooking, but that’s beside the point. (Or is it?) Just this past week I managed to stain up three shirts and a skirt. Of course, they’re the ones I wear all the time and love.
I’m still learning some of the domestic arts, such as stain removal. I normally don’t bother with it. To my horror, I realized that I might have thrown out one of my favorite skirts on a whim since it had a stain on it. I use the word “might” since I don’t have a clear memory of it, and it very well could be hidden somewhere in my room. I wouldn’t be surprised if I did throw the skirt out..since I have very limited knowledge on dealing with stains.
Praise the Lord, I do have some friends who are more knowledgeable about these things and have been influencing me for the better. This time, instead of walking around with stains on my clothing, hiding them away, or tossing them out (lol), I decided to seek wise counsel from a friend, and Pinterest. I came up with an instructional from the blog “We Got Real” on how to remove grease stains.
This is a shirt I received for Christmas. Just three weeks after getting it, I either spilled butter or cod liver oil on it. I didn’t notice the stain until AFTER I washed it. You should treat a stain as soon as possible, that much I know. I did try to wash the shirt three more times..that didn’t work obvious. lol
Sprinkle some baking soda on top, and scrub again. This time in a more gentle manner since baking soda is more abrasive.
Throw it into the wash on Hot/Cold cycle, and tada! The stain is gone! It worked beautifully, if I may say so!
It was super easy, fast, and efficient. I’m so happy this worked. I’m more encouraged and inspired to try out different stain removing methods, and to be more proactive at removing them, and PREVENTING them.
If you give this method a try, let me know how it works by leaving a comment! If you have another method you prefer to use, let me know below!
