How to remove Grease Stains from Cotton

Sometimes cleaning grease stains off the grills or stoves can be hard. If you are using a cotton cleaning towel, the grease and stains may remain on the cleaning towel even after washing it, making it impossible to be used again because the stickiness of the grease remains on the cotton and even after a number of washes it goes away, the stains remain. Rather than buying new cotton cleaning towels every time you clean your stove or grill, now you can reuse them by using a number of methods that have proved successful in removing grease stains.
