Do you have trouble with dryer sheet stains on your clothes? How do you know if those grease stains are actually from dryer sheets? Or is the culprit something else?
In my experience if the grease stains cover a majority of the load, you can chalk it up to dryer sheets being the cause. You’ll see multiple little dime to quarter-size stains on several garments in the load if it is caused by dryer sheets.
Treating dryer sheet stains is oh so easy: just use the Blue Dawn Method for removing grease. It might be labor intensive only in that you’ll have multiple little stains to treat with the Dawn. But it is as simple as rubbing it in with your finger and throwing in the washer.
But use caution if you are treating a lot (say more than 3-4 items) of clothes using the Blue Dawn Method. Too much soap can definitely cause your machine to go in the SUD cycle. It’s certainly not the end of the world if that happens, but it can double or even triple the wash time. Just be sure to evenly space out among several washer loads the clothes to be treated. If you have a top-loader, you should be able to wash them all in one load. However, I would still do an extra rinse in a top-loader just to make sure you get all of the soap out.
I have found that the ‘cheaper’ dryer sheets are the most offensive in terms of leaving those grease stains. And by ‘cheap’ I mean in quality, not in price. And I’ve even occasionally had the name-brand dryer sheets leave grease stains on our clothes. I solved this problem by using only half or even a quarter of a dryer sheet. I have not found any decrease in effectiveness by only using half of a sheet. The load might not have as intense of a ‘fresh mountain spring scent’, but it is just as effective in reducing static cling.
So first try using only half or a quarter of a dryer sheet. If you don’t find that to fix the problem, try switching brands of dryer sheets.
