How To Get Oil Stains Out Of Clothes
Do you have stubborn oil stains that you don't know how to remove? It’s important to know what your stain is composed of before starting the wash process. Oil-based stains behave differently than other types of stains like coffee or grass and can include:
Cooking oils like olive, vegetable or canola oil
Condiments like salad dressing and mayonnaise
Cosmetics like liquid makeup and moisturizers
Oils from your skin that can build up on your shirt collar
- Oily ingredients such as coconut oil and butter
It’s important to act fast so the stain doesn’t spread or set in further. Always check your garment’s care label for any specific requirements before starting to treat the stain, then count on these quick steps below to help you tackle oil stains in cotton, synthetics, wool and delicates.
