Washable Fibers

Follow these steps to remove cooking grease and auto grease stains from washable fibers such as Acrylic Fabric, Cotton, Linen, Modacrylic, Olefin, Polyester and Spandex:

  • Blot up the excess grease as soon as possible.
  • Apply an absorbent and let it soak up the spill.
  • After brushing out the powder on the laundry stains, sponge the area with a dry-cleaning solvent, K2r Spot Lifter or Afta Cleaning Fluid.
  • Then apply a dry spotter to any remaining stain.
  • Cover the stain with an absorbent pad dampened with dry spotter and let it remain in place until no more stain is lifted.
  • Change the pad as it picks up the stain.
  • To help loosen the stain, occasionally tamp (the method of bringing a brush down with light strokes on stained durable fabrics and materials) the area, blotting up any loosened material.
  • Flush with one of the liquid dry-cleaning solvents.

If any trace of stain remains:

  • Sponge stain with water and apply a wet spotter and a few drops of ammonia.
  • Tamp the stain again, blotting with an absorbent pad to remove any loosened material.
  • Flush the area with water and repeat until no more stain is removed.
  • Allow to dry.
