Gently scrape the stain with the side of a spoon. Do not press the spoon into the fabric. Discard the excess grease, and blot the fabric with a paper towel. Keep blotting until the paper towel comes away clean.
Cover the grease with cornstarch, wait 10 minutes, and brush it away with a nail brush. Do not get the soiled cornstarch on clean areas of the garment.
Place a dab of dish soap on the stain, sprinkle it with water, and rub the fabric with the nail brush. Turn the fabric over, apply another dab of soap, and scrub the back of the fabric.
Wash the garment according to the directions on its care label. When the wash cycle ends, remove the garment and lay it flat to dry. Inspect the stained area. If some grease remains, launder the fabric again.
