How To Remove Oil Stains from Clothing and Fabric.

by on Dec 14, 2007

Somehow, in the gravy making marathon of Thanksgiving 2007, I got splattered with a bit of olive oil. I feared not, however, for I knew there were good tidings of a great DIY solution.

1.Simply lay out your clothing on a flat surface where it won’t be disturbed.

2.Liberally sprinkle baby powder onto the spot.

3. Allow it to sit for 24 hours. Shake clean, or use masking tape to remove the powder. If the stain is still present, simply repeat the process until it goes away. Wash, and double check that there’s no oil left before you dry as normal.
