Before discovering in more detail the characteristics of SPOT LESS, let’s focus on how grease stains form on clothing and why it is difficult to remove them.

Grease stains on work clothes: how are they formed? 

In industrial workplaces, such as workshops, grease stains caused by lubricants and oils soiling work clothes are a common problem. 

These stains that leave traces on clothing are, as mentioned, caused by the oils and lubricants of the mechanical parts of cars, machinery and tools in general.

For this it is necessary to resort to washing work clothes using a specific detergent. Removing mechanical grease, in fact, is not easy, because it is an extremely resistant substance once it has penetrated the fabric. 
Using the right product for this type of need is crucial. So let’s see together what are the characteristics of SPOT LESS detergent and what are the correct steps to follow to use it!
