Getting out grease stains can be tough, but OxiClean™ makes it easier, whether it’s on carpet, clothes, car seats, or furniture. Find out how to get out even set-in grease stains.
Mix a solution of OxiClean™ and water. Fill the scoop to the Line 4 per gallon of water. Mix until completely dissolved.
Soak clothing for 1-6 hours. For best results and set-in stains, soak for the full 6 hours.
Wash with your detergent and a scoop of OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover added to the drum with your clothes.
Spray OxiClean™ Max Force™ directly onto the grease stain until saturated. Do not treat the garment while wearing it.
Wait at least five minutes and up to a week depending on the severity of the stain. For fabrics that are prone to color change, do not let stand longer than 5 minutes. For set-in grease stain removal, leave on the maximum amount of time.
Wash as you normally would with detergent, using the warmest water that is recommended on the garment label. Consider adding a scoop of OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover directly to the drum with your clothes to boost the stain-fighting power.
Remove any excess food or liquid from the stained area.
Spray OxiClean™ Carpet & Area Rug Stain Remover directly and liberally onto the grease stain. Saturate the area so it can penetrate the carpet fibers.
Wait 10 minutes for the cleaners to do their work.
Blot the area with a clean, color-fast cloth or sponge. You should notice the stain transferring to the cloth or sponge as you blot. If the stain persists after drying, repeat a second time.
Vacuum the area once it’s dry.
Fill your OxiClean™ scoop to line 1 and add to 16 ounces of water to make a solution. Ensure it fully dissolves.
Don’t apply the solution directly onto the upholstery stain. Instead, apply it to a clean white towel and use it to blot the stain. Continue applying solution to the cloth and the cloth to the upholstery until the stain is no longer visible.
Dampen a second clean white towel with water and blot the area to rinse.
Let dry. You might consider covering the stain with a towel while it is drying to prevent further dirt accumulation.
