Do you know to get grease out of pillowcase?
Maybe, you can try using a pre-treatment product and a hot soapy water to wash it. But, you should not use chlorine bleach. Want to know more details?
- Apply liquid heavy-duty or enzyme detergent, a powdered detergent paste, or an enzyme or petroleum based-solvent spray directly to the stain on pillowcases before washing.
- Rub the fabric so the detergent permeates the fabric.
- Let the detergent sit in the stain for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Place the pillowcase in a washing machine.
- Choose “hot wash” setting and choose the option that allows for a longer cleaning.
- Hang pillowcase out to dry in the sun.
Note: if any grease remains, you can repeat the pretreatment and wash until the stains are gone.

- Use a bit of talcum powder or cornstarch to absorb the fresh stain.
- Rub the talcum powder or cornstarch into the stain.
