If you have trouble removing grease spots from your tablecloths try spraying the spots with "Simple Green". It is available at most grocery and home improvement stores. After spraying the spots, let it sit for about 5 minutes and then wash as usual. If you have a entire wash load of greasy items you can also toss in a 1/2 cup of Simple Green. Dawn Liquid is also a great degreaser but because of it's foaming action we don't recommend using it in the washing machine.
