How some blue soap saved my dress.

Remember how I hosted a baby shower last week? What you didn't know was that I ended up a large grease splatter on my brand new dress and had to go change halfway through the shower!

I had read on Pinterest that you could remove a grease stain with chalk. My verdict? You CANNOT remove a grease stain with chalk! If anything, it lightened it slightly.

So, I thought I was stuck. I had just bought that dress and it was the first time I was getting to wear it so I was bummed. Then I remembered that what Pinterest doesn't know, Twitter does. So I asked there! I probably had 15 or 20 people tell me to try using the blue Dawn soap.


So the stain was already set in, because after using the chalk, I washed the dress. So what I did was put some blue Dawn on it, rub it in well, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. No one told me to let it sit, so maybe you don't need to, but anytime I stain treat something, I have a 15 minute rule!

Next I washed the dress and now it is as good as new! You can't see any part of the stain at all! So, I thought I'd pass that little tidbit on in case you have something that you think it ruined!
