    Hello! If it something that you saw in a Hometalk posted project, ask your question on that precise post.

    This is a general Q&A posting area, the person who's project you're asking about would likely be unaware of your question about their project post. To get an answer about a specific post, ask the question directly below the project that will likely get you a reply from the Hometalk poster.

    If you ever want to go back to see a particular project, just click on the little blue house at the top of this page, left-hand corner. If you can't find a particular project, you can use the search bar. Also, please consider checking out "Explore Projects" for even more additional ideas.

    Hope this helps.

    My go-to for grease and oil stains is first absorbing as much of it as I can using baking soda or cat litter if it is concrete black top. Vacuum it up. Then, apply Dawn dish detergent directly to the stain. Again, if it's a hard surface, scrub it in, but, don't smear it into other areas. Dawn also works on clothes. In a pinch, liquid hand soap also works on clothes. Then wash it off. I pressure wash a hard surface and machine wash clothing. Good luck and stay safe!

    Hi Terrial, not sure which product you are looking at, but hope this helps you out,

    1. Remove any excess oil with a paper towel or cloth.
    2. Sprinkle baking soda on the affected fabric and allow it to sit for 24 hours.
    3. After a day passes, vacuum or brush the baking soda away.
    4. Spray the affected area with a vinegar and water solution.
    5. Scrub with soap and a brush, then rinse

    My go to for removing grease is Purple Power or a cleaner degreaser from the Auto store. If it is a small area, try Dawn Platinum

    Hi Terrial, I thinkk you may have intended your question to be under a post someone placed on Hometalk. To get the answer to your question, posts it beneath the posst you read and the author of the post can probably answer your question best because they will know exactly what product your inquiring about.
