Can anyone tell me if there is a way to remove grease marks from clothes after they've been washed and dried? There are too many to spot treat.

Pure Dawn Dishwashing Liquid...not the off brand stuff...straight Dawn will do the trick. It breaks the grease down in the clothes and makes it easier to remove!:)

"that sucks" and "might try this", thank you for your suggestions, I'll try them both. I had just gotten these new tops and really liked them and only wore them a couple times so I appreciate your suggestions.

try using the liquid lighter fuel. The kind that you put in zippo lighters.

I saw on tv that you should use WD40. Do a web search to see what it says.

I haven't found anything that has actually gotten out all of the grease marks. I've dried them that one time and washed them about 2-3 times since, trying different things and letting them air dry with no luck.

Let me tell you what I have tried to remove candle wax. I have used a hot iron and an old cloth, placing the cloth on top of the stain and iron on hot, this removed alot of the wax, I repeated until the wax was gone, however I believe your problem is the the grease, at this point try using Greased Lightening grease remover. If this fails, I would contact the company via internet and see what they would suggest.

Good Luck!

Try Spray and Wash and rub it in just a bit with an old toothbrush. Then wash on the hottest setting. I left a tube of chapstick in a pair of jeans years ago and ruined a whole load of items, the spray and wash took care of it. Good luck :-)

Add Dawn detergent to the stain, rub it in and let it set for several days. Then wash in warm water. It always works for any greasy stains but it has to set for 4-7 days first.

if you can find any Prell Shampoo put a dab just a small one on the spots and work it in with a toothbrush wash and it should do the trick.
