Also, my co-workers made fun of the way I said 'Dawn'.
In Pittsburgh, they say "DAAAHN". I... having grown up near Philly, actually use the W that's in Dawn and I say it with an extra nasally flair.
Accents aside, I was upset that the go-to grease stain remover had failed me. I really didn't want these black smudges on my super-awesome jacket. I took it home and tested a spot with some Goo-Gone before applying it to the stain. Thankfully, the Goo-Gone didn't stain the jacket and I tried it on the grease and chucked it into the washing machine. I also wanted to see if the Goo-Gone would get rid of the mussels oil I had splattered all over my pink jersey months ago. I was never able to get the oil stains out.
What was I thinking? This stuff is pure oil... orange oil!
Oil + Oil ≠ (-Oil)
|Never use this stuff on clothes, EVER!|
Good news: the Goo-Gone broke up the grease a bit, but not completely.
Bad news: the orange oil based Goo-Gone ruined the pink jersey! The somewhat visible stains were now atrociously hideous and BROWN! OMG, what have I done?!?
It worked. Whew.
Not only did the Fels Naptha take care of the GooGone stains, but it took care of the set-in mussels stains. So awesome.
I keep Fels Naptha around the house to make my own laundry soap. I've been making/using it for a few years and it literally costs under $2.50 to make a 5 gallon bucket of the stuff. So much money saved considering it runs 4-6 dollars for a gallon of commercial detergent. This is the first time I've used the soap full-strength as a pre-treater.
