I learned something from one of my daughters-in-law this weekend. I had gotten some grease on a favorite blouse and the stain just wouldn’t come out.
She told me, “Mom, one of our neighbors told me to use Dawn dish soap on grease stains.”
I tried it and it worked like a champ! I had washed that blouse three times, with special spot remover, once and full-strength detergent twice, to no avail. I popped some Dawn on the blouse and washed it again. Presto! No more stain!
When I came home from my trip, I went directly to to store, bought a big bottle and put it… next to my washing machine. No more expensive stain removal products for me! Give me my dish soap and no one will get hurt! 🙂
Do you have any ideas that I can share with my readers? I would love to hear about your non-traditional fixes!
