Laundry Tips and Help Needed

My friend MJ writes a fun blog which is often informative as well.  She recently wrote one about items she is trying for laundry. 

I’ll give you a couple of tips, and then i’m going to need your help for a problem I have.

  • Hydrogen peroxide will remove blood stains in a snap.  Just pour some on the stain, watch it bubble up, then toss in the laundry and wash as usual.  (Found this out from a nurse at the ER after my son split his head open in Kindergarten.  There was blood all over the back of his yellow sweatshirt.  Came out looking like new.) 
  • To remove machinery-type grease, just pour a little Dawn liquid detergent directly on grease, and then just use your fingernail to scratch away the grease.  Sure, it’s not turning water into wine, but it is pretty miraculous just the same!

Now, I need help!  My dear neighbor brought tacos over for our dinner last night.  As my family says, “It’s not a meal until Mom spills something on her shirt.”  And, true to form, after I finished, I looked down and taco grease was all over my shirt.  And, one of my favorite shirts at that.  (Kurt Warner jersey)  How do I get that out?  I read once about pouring rubbing alcohol on grease stains to break of the particles or some kind of science thing.  That didn’t work.  PLEASE HELP!!!!
