Dish Soap Works
by: Josh

The ONE time I didn't check my pockets for lip balm it left oil spots everywhere! Initially I thought these clothes were all a total loss until I read this article. We use Target brand Free and Clear dish soap so I applied a dot on every stain and agitated with a small brush. Let them sit for 30 minutes then rinsed all of the soap off in sink prior to putting in the washing machine. Using a combo of laundry detergent and a few cups of white vinegar I washed them. VICTORY!! Every single grease spot is gone. Hope this helps as seeing the spots really bummed me out.

Chapstick Stains After Dryer
by: Esther

I read the chapstick stain section but I didn't realize there was a chapstick in the load until after it had already dried in the dryer. I tried washing it once in Dawn and then air drying and the stain did not come out. Should I even bother trying the long method listed on the site for chapstick stains or is it just not going to come out of my husband's dress pants and dress shirts since it has been in the dryer already? Thanks for any input you have. I just don't want to buy a bunch of detergents and take the time if it definitely won't come out.

what I did when washing my chapstick
by: Chrissy

Twice recently, I've washed a chapstick in the load--it melts in spots all over the clothes--and when they're wet/dark, you can't see the spots. The chapstick was so small that it just got scooped into the drier with the clothes. Good news is it comes out with a washing, even after it's been dried.
