Default How to get out oil stains?

I have several tshirts that have been ruined by oil stains - bacon fat that crackled out of the pan, one where I dribbled salad dressing onto my shirt and didn't notice it for a while - another I have no idea what happened.

I've tried using Carbona oil removing products. I've tried a friend's method whereby you saturate the stain with WD-40, then saturate that with Dawn, then launder - nothing has worked.

How do you get set in oil stains out? These are tshirts that have been laundered and dried multiple times since the original stain happened...

If I can't squirt Dawn on the spill pretty quickly after it occurs, I've had pretty good luck with Shout Advanced; saturate the fabric and let it sit for a few hours before laundering. Lestoil (a product similar to Pine Sol) applied directly to the stain works well but it can be difficult to find.

I have a store near me that carries a wide and wacky assortment of cleaning products - stuff you never find in grocery stores. I'll check there for Lestoil - thanks! Would I let the Lestoil sit on the stain for a few hours as well? Rinse before laundering?

Yep, let it sit and no need to rinse. You can even add some along with your detergent as a laundry booster, if you'd like. A cup of ammonia also works well as a laundry booster, just make sure you don't mix it with bleach.

I add baking soda to my laundry as a booster and we never use bleach anymore. Our clothes come out just as clean, if not even cleaner! When I wash whites, I use twice as much baking soda as I do in my color loads. I have also used it as a pre-treater and it seems to help!

Also, bear in mind when trying to remove ANY stain, to do so from the BACK of the fabric. This pushes the stain OUT of the fabric instead of INTO it from the front of the fabric.

I have had good luck with Spray and Wash Stain Stick. My boy's seem to always have some oily stains on their clothes, put the Stan Stick on and let it set for a couple of days then launder as usual. HTH.

I am a stain removal pro!

Dawn, goo gone, tide, biz. If it is a tricky stain I will use all of it and let it soak LOL!
