We all have had a hard stain to remove. Rather it's grease from cooking, mud, grass, sweat or oil, it has to come out. But how? My Lover discovered this DIY stain removal years ago when he did roto-milling, putting new black top or tar on roads. He has continued to use it with oil and grease from mechanical work.
This is not entirely organic :( I know, still working that part out, but it is very effective. I most common use it for football now. My "little" football player is always keeping me busy. I regularly use this tactic 3 days a week, the other days he has games and those pants are black...score for Momma! Anyway, here is what you will need:
In the picture above, I had already washed the football pants in my normal washing detergent, with oxyclean, in warm water cycle. That is what was still left of the stains. No, I did not dry them yet, just let them air dry; I don't dry our clothing except for underwear, sox and towels.
All you do:
Let set 5-15 minutes or up to over night. I typically do this when I see the stain and then throw it back in the dirty clothes till wash day. Then I don't have to remember to set aside extra time to treat and set the stain removal. Now wash on any cycle desired and appropriate for the item and material treating.
Here is the football pants after washed and hung to dry. Note: I tried the lemon juice wise-tale on the right leg just to see and it really didn't make a difference. I figured with the type of destruction these bad boys go through, this recipe is sure to get any stains out. Again this works for oil, grease, sweat, grass, mud or any stubborn stain. I did use this on my Beautiful' nice American Eagle jeans that she wore to help Daddy dig post holes in the mud, I wasn't a happy camper about that one. It took 3 good times, without the hydrogen peroxide, to get the mud out but it did work and now they are as good as new:)
