Did you know that cornmeal removes grease from light colored fabric? To do this, take a small amount of dry cornmeal (just enough to cover the soiled area), and let sit for about twenty minutes. Shake your clothing free of the cornmeal (into the trash preferably), or vacuum off of upholstery.
That grease spot should be gone and your clothes will be good as new. Now you don’t have to throw those grease-stained clothes out, or use harsh chemicals to clean them anymore!
