Grease

Although it is always recommended to use a product designed for cleaning clothes, for really stubborn stains the grease removing properties of a dishwashing detergent can come in handy, especially when you spill cooking oil in the kitchen and need to tackle the stain quickly. Lay out the garment and cover the stain with a diluted solution of a dishwashing liquid. Using your fingers, gently work the detergent into the fabric. You will see the stain begin to dissolve almost immediately, as most dish detergents are able to absorb grease directly.

Rinse the washing up liquid off, then pop the garment in the wash with your usual detergent and a capful of ACE for Colours. Remember to not place the item in the dryer as the heat from the dryer can cause the stain to set, making it difficult to remove.

Alternatively, soak your fabric with 10 litres of water, one dosing cap of ACE for Colours and your usual detergent. Leave it up to one hour and then rinse thoroughly.

Always remember to read the label on the item of clothing first.
