I asked her today, and it actually worked really well. I told her your ideas, and she appreciates it, and will try them as needed. Thanks, guys!

I try to use 'green' things as much as possible, if the vinegar and baking soda don't work then try the Febreeze. I really like to use regular dishsoap for grease, how did the Dawn work?? I also use OxyClean for really bad stains ..

I use baking soda to take smells out in my wash. I have not used it for grease smell but it works when potty training. I like fabreeze also.



Along the same line -

does anyone know how to get the ground in dirt from swinging on a wet black swing out? We went to the park after it had rained and it is so bad.

I use vinegar in the laundry as a softener, to help remove soap residue and anti-static. Once dried, the smell is gone so no need to double rinse or use another softener. I have never heard of it helping remove grease smells. Lestoil is really your best bet and is still make by Clorox Co. You shouldn't need to use much to have it work effectively. Try your local Ace hardware. It is also available online through Ace hardware's site or Amazon.

I usually put some vinegar in my wash. I usually have to use an extra rinse with softener to get the vinegar smell out but it works.

Has your daughter tried the new Febreze detergent and softener. Just a thought.

I probably should have put this in the general chatter thread, but it's so off the beaten track, I thought I keep it to it's own.

My daughter works at a pizza shop, and has trouble getting the pizza smell (ie, old airborn greese) out of her clothes. Any ideas? I thought of the old laundry additive my Momused to use (Lesstoil), but idk if they even sell that anymore, and there might be something better. Today, she tried Dawn in the washer, so we'll see how that works for her! But if you have any thoughts, please let me know!
