    Oil stains

    Anybody know how I can get them out? It's annoying because so many of my good outfits have been ruined by oil.Is there any way to get them out?

    dry clean em..sooner the better..if u let them sit around with oil stains for too long, then its a lost cause.
    one trick that my mum used on oil stains was that until she got it to teh cleaners she would put talcum powder on the stain, thepowder just sucks the oil out.
    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

      Thank you Fraudz.The thing is Iv got some outfits sitting there -ruined because of the oil stains.So nothing can be done for them? Sigh.

      I guess I should start using an apron when I cook.

        Try the powder thing, MQ. It actually works. I've tried it on some of my best clothes (yes, I'm a big klutz). Turn the clothes inside out, sprinkle talcum/baby powder on them, cover with a towel or sheet and then iron over that to aid in the absorption. Might take some time, but it does work fairly well.

            Try the new detergent called "Blow-away stains" by a young entreprenuer named Monica Lewinsky.

                        Corn starch works better than talcum powder. Rub it on the both the sides of the stain and take it out after an hour. Repeat a few times.

                          No, buy an apron and stick to using it.

                            Do you work under a car? If so try overalls and leave the prada dress for other occasions.

                            sure thing...I am just here to help, no need to thank me.
