Grease stains on clothes can be removed.

Palm oil is a cooking oil that is made from the nuts of the oil palm tree. While palm oil is not as popular as other cooking oils like olive oil, you might find yourself cooking with it at some point. The palm oil grease that you cook with can end up on your clothes. To remove palm oil grease from your clothes, you need to give them a thorough cleaning treatment.


Step 1

Get a dull, hard object, like a butter knife, and scrape off any palm oil grease on the surface of your clothing.
