How to Get Bike Grease Out of Clothes (The Hard Ways)

The internet is packed with suggestions for removing bike grease from clothes. Some work better than others, but all have their loyal adherents. Here are some of the most popular:

  1. Sprinkle cornstarch or baby powder on the grease stain and let it sit. Shake out the garment before washing.
  2. Rub liquid dish soap, with or without a bit of baking powder mixed in, liquid laundry detergent, or shampoo into the stain. Let it soak in, and then launder the item as normal.
  3. Spray Simple Green directly onto the stains or add some to the wash water.
  4. Use Goo-Gone, Goof-Off, or a similar product on the stains before washing.
  5. Try a harsh cleaner such as tire cleaner, oven cleaner, or brake cleaner before washing as normal.

How Get Bike Grease & Oil Out of Clothes (The Easy Way)

The popular methods listed above have one thing in common: they are messy and can leave behind a residue that may be even worse than the grease stain. Some rely on dangerous chemicals, which you do not necessarily want on your clothes or left behind in your washing machine. Tub O’ Towels offers a simple, easy, and safe alternative:

  1. Pull out a heavy duty Tub O’ Towels wipe.
  2. Perform a test wipe on an inconspicuous section of the clothing item.
  3. Gently wipe away the bike grease, allowing the cleaning solution to do its job.
  4. Use additional wipes as needed to thoroughly remove all traces of bike grease.
  5. Wash your cycling clothes as normal.
