How To Get Oil Stains Out of Clothes
Removing oily food stains such as cooking oil is an easy, although sometimes a lengthy process if more than one treatment is required or the fabric is delicate. Oil can be hard to see on white or light colored fabrics. On dark colors the oil will deepen the color or even look like a black spot.
As with most stains it is important to remove oil before washing and drying, especially when using a heated clothes dryer, as this can set the stain into the fabric. If the oil is mixed with other ingredients (for instance a salad dressing) you may have a combination stain on your hands that may need additional treatments to completely remove the stain.
Clean white cloths
Paper towels or coffee filters (May use light brown, unbleached)
