How to Get Oil Stains Out of Clothing

Since oil and water don’t mix, use as much hot water as possible to drive out the oil. After letting your garment soak in the soap for five to 10 minutes, wash it thoroughly. Be careful not to let the soap dry on the fabric during the soaking stage. The key to successfully getting oil stains out of clothing is to use the hottest water you can, but be sure to follow label’s instructions, as hot water can damage certain fabrics.
