How to get out butter stains! #DIY

The other day I was making lunch for the family and I made quite the mess. I was cooking some grilled cheese sandwiches {because – YUM} and I spilled melted butter all over the front of my shirt. I was not a happy camper as it was a favorite shirt of mine. So I changed shirts and got to work on removing the melted butter stain on my shirt. This will also work on getting rid of grease stains too!

I have tried stain sticks on butter stains with little to no luck and have thrown out and scrapped more butter/grease stained clothing than I would like to remember. I knew I did not want to toss this shirt so I decided to tackle this stain with something that was specifically designed to cut grease… my Dawn liquid dish soap.

Any liquid dish detergent should work, but I am a big fan of Dawn and sometimes think that they sprinkle magic pixie dust in their formula – because what other explanation is there for how well it works. Since the dawn liquid dish soap is specifically designed to cut grease I figured this was a good place to start with a butter/grease stain.

All you have to do is apply the liquid dish soap directly to the stain. Cover it in Dawn, and then put on a little more on it -making sure to cover the stain and a little of the surrounding areas as well. Then scrub. I used my finger tips and rubbed the Dawn dish soap into the fabric. Then I let it sit for about an hour before rinsing it in warm water. Then I tossed it in the washer and washed it then dried it in the dryer. The stains were gone!
