Chapstick Accident

southmomx2December 9, 2002

I posted this on the Cleaning forum. Thought I'd try here, too!

I accidently washed and dried a tube of chapstick in my daughter's jeans pocket. Now all my darks (including 3 BRAND NEW Christmas shirts) have grease spots on them. Any hope of removing these?

Thanks! Michelle

Try washing them again. The chapstick should come out in the wash. It probably melted in dryer not the washer the first time.

I would use one of the pre-treatment spotters on all the spots and let it set for an hour or so before washing again.

I would recommend washing them by hand, in Dawn dish soap. It took bacon grease out of my washable silk shirt! You can always rinse a second and third time in the washer.
