Removing Bike Grease Stain Residue
When you do wash the clothing, wash it as normal and with the hottest water temperature setting. If your clothing is made from fabric which cannot withstand the hottest temperatures, then you should use the warmest that the clothing can handle.
Once this is done you should inspect the affected area to ensure that the stain was removed completely. If it remains, repeat the process.
You should prepare the clothing by placing it upon a paper towel or clean cloth with the stain facing upward. You should read the clothing label prior to applying any pre-treatment product to ensure that it is compatible with the fabric and for how long the treatment may remain on the fabric.
If the stain persists, you can purchase a de-greasing product and mix it with warm water. You should take the clothing and place it in the product allowing it to sit overnight.
You can take a toothbrush and after the clothing has been allowed to adequately soak in the de-greasing product and water mixture, you should brush at the stain lightly with the toothbrush.
Bike grease stain removal is one of the more difficult grease to remove because of the manner in which the grease sticks to the fibers of your clothing. However, with an immediate pre-treatment and stain removal process, you can completely remove bike grease stains from your clothing.
It is important that you remember to never place the item in the dryer until the stain has been completely removed. If you place your clothing in the dryer with even a little of the stain remaining, not only will the heat set the stain into the fibers of your clothing permanently, but like putting it into a mixed load in the washer, you run the risk of the remaining bike grease transferring to any other clothing in the dryer, or to the dryer itself.
