What is the best way to remove cooking oil stains? I splatter oil (olive, canola or veggie) on my clothes while cooking all the time. Sometimes it comes out with spray stain remover and sometimes it doesn’t.
Thanks for sending in your question—it’s a pretty common problem for a lot of people, so you are in good company! And I have good news for you! You should be able to get all your cooking oil stains out if you try the following:
I know the air drying step can be a real pain, but it’s important—damp or wet fabric can hide residual oil left behind, so it looks like the stain is out when it’s not. If you miss any of the oily stains when you pretreat with the dishwashing detergent, you’ll probably have some residual oil that you can get all the way out by repeating the treatment starting again on dry fabric.
Please let me know if you have any other questions, and thanks again for writing!
