Say goodbye to grease spots!

Hello again my friends! I can't believe it has been 5 months since I last posted. I am such a slacker....but really this summer has been cray cray! I have been wanting to get into a better habit of blogging...I know, I know I keep saying that, but I really mean it! Anyhow, I decided to sign up for NaBloPoMo this month and that means that I am supposed to blog EVERY DAY!!!! It's kinda scary, but I am going to do my best. I am getting today's blog in with only 1 1/2 hours to spare. Luckily. I took these pictures awhile back so I could blog my favorite grease stain remover. 

I don't know how it happens, but I always manage to get grease stains on my favorite shirts (maybe it's because I'm always dropping food on myself :)). In my journey towards making all of my laundry cleaning supplies, I stumbled upon this awesome recipe. The best part is that it even works on old stains that went through the dryer. I had a few shirts hanging in my closet that I couldn't bear to throw away and they were saved! YAY! So, I'm going to share with you today.

I only wore this shirt a couple times before I got the first grease spots on it, can you see them?

 My favorite thing about this recipe is that I can make it up whenever I need it, with things I always have around the house. You will need:

Baking Soda
Dawn dish soap

There are no real measurements just mix them up to make a nice paste.

Spoon some on the stain and scrub it in.
It doesn't have to sit, you can just throw it right in the washer. I hope you are able to salvage some of your favorite clothes with this grease remover. It's also a great stain remover. What's your favorite way to pretreat laundry? Let me know in the comments or comment and let me know if this worked for you.
Until tomorrow!
