How To Remove Oil Stains from Clothes

How to Remove Oil Stains From Clothes

I have tried this method for how to get oil stains out of clothes on a few other articles and it works well every time. Occasionally I have to repeat the process, but generally, one treatment and my clothes are good as new.



  1. Place the stained article of clothing on a flat surface and apply several drops of natural dish soap to the stained areas.
  2. Using a wet toothbrush, massage the soap into the stain.
  3. Cover the area with baking soda and brush the soda into the entire area with a toothbrush.
  4. Continue adding baking soda and brushing into the stain until the baking soda creates a paste-like cover over the stained area
  5. Wait one hour, then rinse off baking soda completely.
  6. Soak clothing in warm water with 1/2 scoop of oxygen bleach mixed in for another hour.
  7. Wash clothing in the washer on warm setting.
  8. Air dry and repeat if necessary.
