Removing Cooking Stains from Fabric

Oh stains on our clothes….
I am constantly trying different products from the store
to get the stains out of our laundry.
Sometimes, it’s makeup.  Sometimes, it’s mud and dirt, or grass stains.
Sometimes, it’s colored foods or drinks, crayons, marker, blood.
And sometimes when I cook, it’s oil on my clothes.Cooking Oil
The key to getting out oily and greasy stains is to
wash clothing in the hottest water possibly safe for the fabric.
Remove as much excess oil as possible with a dull knife or spoon.
Apply 3-5 minutes to allow it to go completely through the fabric.
Use liquid detergent 
to rub through the stained fabric.
Allow the garment to sit for a few minutes.
Wash in the hottest water safe for the fabric.

Check tags to determine what water temperature to use for washing.  Liquid Dawn Dish soup will remove most oily stains.

or

Cover the stain with a large amount of Baby powder and let sit over night.Wash in the morning, should work, but if the stain remains, repeat process.
