Hi all!

I am a cook and often times get a significant amount of bacon grease on my clothing. Would washing these greasy clothes in the same load as my casual clothes or even bed sheets cause a problem (ie greasy smelling bed sheets :o ) or would the entire load come out fresh and clean?

Thanks for the help!

I think instinctively most people would want to wash them separately but it may not be practical to get a proper full load using just the work clothes. If they are heavily soiled it might be better to pre soak them possibly using something like soda crystals or even normal detergent, then you could put them in with the normal wash. Check out presoaking.

Further to what Andy has said above, does your washing machine have a prewash option? It may be worth using this so that a certain level of the washing process is done before the main wash, so that the main wash water isn't full of grease.

A little tip - a tablespoon of Borax Subsitute (available to purchase online, and it's very cheap) in with your washing detergent will keep chef whites looking their best.
