TIP: How to easily remove GREASE Stains

We all get stains and often panic, like my grease stains in my morning robe when I was sliding by the bike rack inside the garage...
Yep, the simple solution is to put Vaseline - Petroleum Jelly Cream right on top of the grease stains.
Apply generously and than throw it in the washing machine for regular washing.
Regular Vaseline works perfect! This is what I could find at the time...
Clean as NEW! 
THAT EASY...

  2. Thanks, Mariette, I'll have to remember that. Does it work with regular Vaseline, or only the "creamy" type you illustrated? Glad you were able to save your robe!

      Regular Vaseline is just fine! We could not find it at the time but both is perfect.

    1. Beste Willy,
      Ja, smeervlekken zien er erger uit dan ze in werkelijkheid zijn.
      Dit heeft altijd nog perfect gewerkt en ik schrik er dus ook niet meer van...
      Ook een fijn weekend en liefs,

  4. Dearest Mariette, Brilliant! I never would have thought of grease to remove grease.
    It looks like you are enjoying spring. We still have snow and ice on the ground. It’s supposed to warm up and rain soon. Toes crossed!........*s*

    3. Drodzy Małgorzata P.,
      Dziękuję bardzo, a tym samym Twoja mama jest o cztery lata młodszy niż mój Pieter. O naszych podróżach, mam głównie teraz napisane o specjalnej pracy Pietera pionierskie w branży grzybów jako doskonały pedagog na jego pierwszym i jedynym praktycznym kolegium szkolenia na całym świecie. Dlatego też jego książka jest przetłumaczona na 8 języków urzędowych. Modlę się tylko, że Bóg udzieli mi czasu, aby wypełnić wszystkie moje pismo. Również mam zamiar opublikować tego lata jego książka jako iBook. Jest tak duża prośba i potrzeba. To będzie wielki dla niego żyć dla widząc, że dokonane, jak również.
      Wielkie uściski i znowu, Kudos do Twojej mamy i jesteś doskonałą córką; równie utalentowany!
      Mariette
