Cooking Oil Stains

This is amazing:

I was cleaning up after dinner one evening and when I picked up the frying pan with grease in it I spilled the grease down the front of my pants. I took them off and immediately put tide on the spot and then washed them. When I took them out of the washer it looked like the spot was gone so I put them in the dryer. Well low and behold when I took them out of the dryer the grease spot was still there and now I had succeeded in setting the stain in. I was going to throw them away but for some reason I didn't. (Now I'm glad)

Well, I took them out the other day and decided I needed to research how to remove cooking oil from clothing. I found a lot of great ideas but then I decided I was going to try Goo Gone....it seems to work for everything else. So, I took my pants and got out the Goo Gone. I proceeded to dump a bunch on the spot, washed and dried them and guess what???? The spot is gone!!!!! It's amazing what this stuff can do. So, run out and make sure you have some Goo Gone on hand at all times. It even removes permanent marker! Now I am going to pull out all of those sweatshirts and T-shirts that have grease splatters on them that I stuffed in the back of the dresser and bring them back to life.

Got home late last night from the Dover race. We had a blast....I love the races and we took our boy's and my MIL to their first race. It was a long day but, we had loads of fun. There is always so much going on at the track. We watched the Speed channel pre-race show. Then we watched the motocross stunt bikes doing tricks, parachuter's and then on to the race.
