Hey all,

With all the wonderful cooking we do, I often get oil stains on my clothes. Anyone know a trick for getting rid of them? Thanks!

I haven't found a good way to do that.  I worked in a local deli for a few years and it seemed unavoidable. 

The only solution I found was an apron haha.

Dawn Soap applied to the oil stain sometimes works. 

If the oil stain is fresh and not set, sometimes a soak in water and amonia will get it out.

As a mechanic and a printing press operator before that I have a lot of experience with this.
GoJo or Goop hand cleaner works the best. Apply it to the stain on both sides before washing. Works every time.

I use this on work shirts that don't have much value so if the stain is on expensive clothing try it on something of little value first. Hope it helps.

I know this is an older post, but "they say" throwing a can of coca-cola in the wash does the trick
 
This will take every ounce of my mental strength! All for a tiny ad:
