this is totally off topic, but i just found out that if u get a grease stain is ur clothes, u can just put some shampoo on it and throw it in the washing machine...... it'll come out so fresh and so clean

just wanted the world to know

And Dawn is animal safe! They use it to clean off penguins after oil-spills.

My SIL uses a combination of WD-40 and Dawn and scrubs it out. She swears by it. I've yet to try it...

Wow, I didn't know they even made that anymore. Haven't heard that name since I was a kid.

Dawn does work well, but frankly the stuff SMELLS like WD-40! You end up having to rewash you clothes with detergent to get the smell out.

Have any of you used those "pens?" What a joke! I used the Tide one and it took out the stain but left it's own stain on my shirt that was permanent discoloration. I just went back to carrying a bib with me....

I've used the Clorox Bleach pen on whites with good luck. Glad to hear about the Tideone-I have one in my desk for emergencies. Thank goodness I haven't had one yet, since it leaves a stain of its own. Guess I'll throw it in file 13.
