The mysterious, greasy stains from my washer
 
Where the heck are these coming from? I have an HE Whirlpool Cabrio. We don't use fabric softener (just vinegar on occasion) and I keep seeing these random grease stains on our dark clothing. DS's newest grey shirt was slathered in grease streaks.

None of our regular clothes are greasy. DH and I do not work or roll around in grease. I don't dump cooking oils in the machine along with detergent. We don't love bacon in my house, so no one's eating that and using their clothes instead of napkins.

So what is it? How do I get it out?

Did someone leave a chapstick in their pocket?

There was just a thread on this a couple of days ago. Here it is:

I hope it comes out for you, mama!

Are you using homemade detergent? I discovered the same problem because the fels naptha in mine wasn't dissolving right in the cold water.

Nope, always empty pockets. Nope to homemade (used to but not anymore).

Thanks, Sojomisa, for that link! I missed that thread!

ETA: Ah, it seems like it's the liquid detergent not mixing properly. I usually use powder but got lazy and started liquid. Sojomisa, you are my hero!

Nah, I just remembered the thread. The other mamas had the solution. :) I don't even have a FL. Glad it was helpful! :thumbsup:
