Greasy in Gallatin
When I worked at the auto repair shop, I was introduced to the miracle that is Simple Green. Not only is it one of the best degreasers I have ever used, but it’s nontoxic, biodegradable, and not stinky. I used it to clean the grease off my shoes and clothes that always gets on ya when you work around cars.
Later, I married a restaurant manager who brought home the grease all over his clothing, and Simple Green worked wonders again. My darling restaurant manager doesn’t bring home so much grease anymore, but since I’m a messy cook, Simple Green is still my best pal.

For your khakis, just spray Simple Green directly onto the stain and wash as usual. Make sure the grease stains are gone before you put it in the dryer, but chances are good that they’ll be fabulous once again. Thanks for the great question!
