Grease will not come from the interior of the washer, as the machine ages build up deposits under the basket and it is oily, greasy and full of mildew. If can get a spanner wrench from a appliance parts house and remove the basket you will see on machines older than three years a build up starting. I pulled 15 lbs from a 25 year old machine and I had to go get sick outside, it was bad.

if you use liquid fabric softner that is what it is sort of looks like grease what happens is that softner gunks up and gets up under the agitator then when your lighter clothes are washing it shows up you need to take some stuff called washer magic and just follow the directions on the bottle

SOURCE: Stains in my thermocast sink

Rinse after every use. Sanatize with Bleach once a month. Use a soft cloth or sponge and liquid soap to remove residue. Scratches can be buffed and polished with a liquid based auto polish to maintain High Gloss finish. Do not use abrasive cleaners which will dull the finish. If you have used the sink in a non-normal usage and stained it, it can not be repaired under most circumstances. If you have not voided the warranty, you may be eligible for a replacement from the company.

I just cleaned ours yellow stain using a metal/chrome cleaner, a "magic eraser", and a lot of elbow grease. It still has a yellowish tint but the cleaning made a BIG difference. I hope it works for you!

How can I clean stains in concrete?

It depends what the stain is. Concrete is porous and like clothing, some stains are permanently set. Detergents remove oils. Surfectants take it a step further. Acid removes scale. Cat litter can soak up standing oil. Once clean to satisfaction, seal the concrete to help prevent future staining.

My black crockpot has white stain all inside of it ive tried bleach, vinager, comet and plain old elbow grease, nothing works. Any ideas?

Does it appear that the enamel is worn away and the stain is embedded into the underlying ceramic?

If not, here's a crazy thought for a solution that just might work: Oxiclean. It's safe to put in your dishwasher, and it certainly does a stellar job of getting stains out of practically anything. It works best in warm to hot (but not boiling water), so a scoop in a crock pot full of water set to low for an hour or two may just do the trick. If not, I doubt anything will. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly after cleaning. If you've used Oxiclean before, you know how slick the residue can be.

Hope this helps!

Stain in dryer

This will work. Soak white towel or other white fabric in bleach water, then slightly wring them out, leaving very wet. Then put them in dryer, on low or fluff cycle. Run for 60 minutes or more. This should rub off all the ink in the dryer. You may have to repeat if you have alot of ink. I have done this a few times and it has always work, good luck.
