This will help make it easier to treat the grease stained area of the fabric. It will also prevent any of the oil from seeping into other parts of the fabric, and create new areas that will need to be treated. You can start by applying liquid laundry detergent to the stained area.

As it soaks into the fabric, it will begin to break down the grease. You can let it sit for up to ten minutes, but don't let the area dry. After washing, check to make sure the grease stain is removed before you dry the clothing. If any hint of the grease stain remains, repeat the previous steps.
