You know those sneaky, underhanded little grease stains that almost always get through the dryer before you even know they’re there? The ones that just discolor the brightly colored shirt that you love so much and make it look terrible? We’re tackling How to Naturally Get Grease Stains out of Laundry at Simple Organic today:
Ranch dressing. Straining greasy homemade chicken stock. Frying asparagus in bacon grease. Random unknown alien lifeforms.
All culprits in the “Where did that grease stain on my shirt come from?” game in my real food kitchen.
As I mentioned last month in 15 Natural Solutions to Kid Messes, I can handle getting blood, strawberries, and most poop out of my kids’ clothing.
But grease stains? My nemesis.
They show up unannounced, usually only noticed after they’ve been through the dryer, making them 5,729 times harder to get out.
I had some bad ones this month, which is good for you, because I got to test lots of ideas.

Next week I’m teaming up with Trilight Health to offer a cool giveaway and review opportunity for 10 readers. Our family has been lucky this winter and haven’t needed the Lympha Rub that we call “magic drops” for coughing very often, but I was wishing I had it in my purse when a pregnant friend was saying how she had to go home to “the coughing symphony” of her three children the other night. (Maybe our “luck” is due more to taking Green Pasture fermented cod liver oil and the Trilight immunity boosting herbs regularly?)
Then yesterday at John’s well-child appointment, I saw another friend whose kids weren’t able to shake their sickness and she wondered if it was strep, with some obvious trepidation. I knew she was a naturally minded momma and for the second time in a week, wished I could thrust the little bottle into her hands. (Seriously, maybe I should start carrying one around…)
We’ll talk more about Trilight next week, but for now, you can check them out on Facebook to keep up on deals and discounts.
Oh, and John is 20 lbs. 14 oz., a milestone the other two Kimball kids did not reach until 15 and 18 months. I am doing some serious Mommy body-building!
Another fun project I have in the wind is testing my own water before and after using my Berkey filter. It won’t be in the next few weeks or anything, but be watching for an update from me on how we’re enjoying it and my independent testing results. (Here’s how the Berkey filters food coloring, in case you’d like to be amazed today.)
Have a great weekend!
