Step 1: Scrape Off the Grease

Step 3: Sprinkle Baby Powder

Put some baby powder or cornstarch on the stained area. Ensure the stain is fully covered with the powder. Let it rest for 10 minutes.

Step 4: Scrub the Stain

Gently brush away the powder. Add 2-3 drops of a dishwashing liquid on both sides of the stain. Grab an old toothbrush and scrub gently in a circular motion on both sides of the stained area.

Step 5: Wash Your Shirt

Put it to wash in the washing machine. However, do not use the dryer until you are sure the stain is completely gone.

That’s it! Climb the corporate ladder in a crisp, white formal shirt.
