Remove Grease Stain Corduroy Jacket

Removing grease stains from corduroy can be a challenge, but here's a method that may help:

  1. Blot the stain: As soon as possible, blot the stain with a clean cloth or paper towel to remove as much of the grease as possible. Be sure to use a clean part of the cloth or paper towel each time you blot to avoid spreading the stain.

  2. Apply a stain remover: Sprinkle a little baking soda or cornstarch onto the stain, and let it sit for 10-15 minutes to absorb the grease. Then, gently brush the baking soda or cornstarch away with a soft brush.

  3. Pre-treat with detergent: Apply a small amount of liquid laundry detergent directly onto the stain, and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Gently rub the stain with your fingers to work the detergent into the fibers.

  4. Wash the jacket: Wash the jacket in cold water, using the gentle cycle. Avoid using hot water, as this can set the stain.

  5. Check the stain: Before drying the jacket, check to see if the stain has been removed. If not, repeat steps 2-4.

  6. Dry the jacket: Once the stain has been removed, hang the jacket up to air dry. Avoid using a dryer, as the heat can cause the corduroy fibers to shrink and the stain to set.

If the stain persists after following these steps, you may need to take the jacket to a professional cleaner.
