How to Use Baby Powder on Grease Stains

Frying food can be an extremely messy proposition.

The excess oil and grease usually leads to a multitude of splatters, the grease leaping out of the pan and landing everywhere. The stove top takes the brunt of this, but your clothes can get sprayed with the airborne oil as well. When this happens, don't fret, because there is an easy homemade treatment that you can use to against those nasty grease stains. The following article will show you how to use baby powder to rid yourself of grease stains on your clothing.

Remove the article of clothing with the stains and place it flat on a table.

Apply baby powder to the stain with a cotton ball or powder puff.

Rub the powder into the stain. This will allow the powder to sop up the grease that has been absorbed deeper into the fabric.

Brush away the excess powder and repeat as needed until the stain is gone.

Things You Will Need

  • baby powder, cotton ball

Tip

  • Rub the powder in well. Use your finger if you need the extra pressure.

Warning

  • Don't apply the powder while wearing the clothing. It will fall onto the floor.
