How to Get Oil Stains Out of Clothes
- Act quickly. The faster you start working on a stain, the easier it will be to remove. Even a few hours can make a big difference, and waiting a few days to treat a grease stain can be disastrous.
- Read the garment care label first. Before you do anything, always check first to see what the clothing manufacturer advises. Hot water is generally best for removing oil stains, but first, make sure that hot water will not damage your fabric by checking the garment care label. Take care when handling hot water to avoid causing any injury.
- Never machine-dry clothing before an oil stain has been removed. The high heat of the dryer will cause an oil stain to set in the fabric, so check your clothing carefully before you put it in a machine dryer.
- Blot the stain gently first to remove excess grease. Use a tissue, paper towel, or cotton swab to press gently against the stain on both sides of the fabric. Do not rub into the stain, just soak up the excess oil.
- Use a serious stain remover. Rejuvenate’s Outrageous Stain Remover and Laundry Pretreater is the newest stain remover on the block, and it works.
- Application is easy. Apply the remover directly on the stain, agitate the surface with a cloth, allow to sit 5-10 minutes and wash in washing machine
