How to Remove Butter Stains from a Blouse

What can I say about butter that’s hasn’t already been said, it’s absolutely the most heavenly versatile, flavorful food ever created for us carnivores. Just thinking of it stirs up emotions…a rich butter dipping sauce for lobster, or on a baked potato…then reality…butter stains down the front of my shirt…!@#$%^&*…Now what? Not to worry I have the secret solution.

Step 1: Dawn Dishwashing Liquid

If the first steps did not achieve adequate results then continue with a citrus base oil degreaser.

Step 2: Dawn Dishwashing Liquid and CITRASOLV Degreaser

Oil stain may be stubborn, repeat these steps again if necessary.

Test for colorfastness before proceeding: Take the stain removal product and apply small amount to a white towel. Take that part of the towel and blot a hidden area of the garment to see if color transfers over to the white towel. If the item is not colorfast start with step 1, use caution as this will still remove color. If the item is colorfast, than skip directly to step 2.


When done removing the stain always finish by cleaning the entire item per manufacture care instructions. Even benign spotting agents such as these will oxidize and yellow over time.

Seek professional help if necessary. If you have a good relationship with your green dry cleaners they will be more than happy to help you with stain removal and cleaning questions.
