If you love Italian food, chances are you’ve had a least one olive oil stain on your clothes.  Do you wash your clothing several times trying to remove the oil & in the process wear out the article by over washing?  Have stain removers left you frustrated to the point you just throw away your clothes?  Maybe we can help…

There are alternatives to throwing your clothes away & most of them can be found right on the internet.  Whether you find the information by doing a general search for removing oil from clothing or you go directly to a specific site, like You Tubeto find the information; there are a lot of suggestions for removing oil stains.

As you can imagine, we have quite a bit of clothing that comes home with olive oil stains & sometimes it is a drawn out battle; but I never end up throwing in the towel!  Usually a 5-10 minute treatment of stain remover & some added OxiClean to the wash will do the trick, but what about the really tuff stains?  Well, it is a good idea to dab (not rub) the excess oil off the material before trying any treatment (see first link above).  Then, get some dish soap out & treat the stain with that, allowing it to sit 5 minutes to overnight (depending how big & bad the stain may be) & then wash as usual.

There are many ways & recommendations on how to remove stains.  Maybe you know of a great way to get a stubborn spot out or your mother has shared a family “secret” on getting the job done.  So, how do you get olive oil stains out of you clothes?
