Dawn and Bacon

Maybe you don't have laundry problems, but I do.  I will give you an example.  You are making bacon for BLT Sandwiches and not wearing an apron, because you are cooking the bacon in the oven to avoid the mess.  Somehow when you are flipping the bacon the grease spatters onto your shirt. The shirt goes into the laundry and you forget to treat the stain. The shirt then gets washed by your husband, who is being so sweet and helping you out with the laundry, and proceeds to the dryer where it is locked and set forever. It looks something like this after it comes out of the dryer.
I was reminded of this little trick (that I had forgotten) while on Pinterest. If you notice an oily stain on your clothing after it has dried, put Dawn on the spots and let it sit for at least an hour. I let mine sit for about 8 hours.
Wash again as you normally would and you should be happy with the results.

No more grease spots on this shirt! This trick would probably work for lip gloss and chapstick stains that get set in the dryer, when you forget to check your pockets, not that those things ever happen here.
