I wasn’t thinking, you guys. I SHOULD have taken a “before” picture, but I didn’t, so you’re just going to have to take my word for it.
I came home yesterday afternoon to find a grease spot on one of my chairs. One of my grey-black chairs, too, so it was pretty obvious. It SEEMED like baby oil or something similar – it may have been butter; I don’t know. All I do know is that it was slick and oily, and when I pressed a napkin to it, grease came up.
I remember seeing a “spot cure” on Pinterest, so I logged in, typed “grease spot” in the search box, and came up with this.
So I gave it a try…
(here’s where I’ll post a picture when my phone starts agreeing to outgoing mail again… sorry…)
I had two different grinds of cornmeal, and I decided to start with the larger grain. I left it on overnight and vacuumed it up the next afternoon.
It was a total failure.
(here’s where I’ll post a picture. It turns out that I didn’t really NEED to take a “before” picture, because it looks exactly like the “after” picture).
Cornmeal may take some of the edge off a grease spot, but it doesn’t do anything to remove it. I had to flip the cushion over.
