Among the Olive Oils you will find several Roland offerings as well as the buttery, organic olive oil of McEvoy Ranch.   Now, McEvoy does hail out of California, not oversees; but it is an agriculturally responsible ranch that uses a blend of Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino, Maurino, Leccio del Corno and Coratina Italian Olives to make their oil & it is just sumptuous!

How do You Get Olive Oil Stains Out of Your Clothes?

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?

Coming Soon to Joe’s Pasta House

When you own a business,  you are always making changes whether it is basic upkeep, replacement of products, updating, redecorating, rearranging or just plain bringing in something new.  This is one of those times when we are bringing in something new; it is coming soon & we want to share it with you as we go through the process!

COMING SOON1

You may notice some changes taking place when you come to dine with us – an addition of a retail area!  We will be introducing Fine Domestic/Imported Foods & Confections.  The selection; that will be available for you to purchase & enjoy at home, will include an eclectic array of pastas, oils, olives, tasty treats & more.  There will be a diverse assortment of brands from which to choose.  We decided to offer this because we know how difficult it can be to find fine Italian products & ingredients here that are more readily available in larger cities, closer to the coastal regions of the United States.  Many of our regulars ask us how they can purchase higher quality goods that just don’t seem to be available here in the grocery stores. So; we are going to bring some of those favorites to you, as well as some really nice products we have come across & use at home ourselves.   Please join us in our excitement as we remodel & bring in something new; for you!
