Oil Stains on Clothes

We’ve all been victim of the dreaded oil stains while cooking or eating in a rush, a splatter or smear of oil on your clothes is really natural. There is no need to panic and bid our beloved clothes goodbye. Here is an easy way to fight that persistent stain and restore our favorite clothes so that they’re as good as new.


  • 1) Paper towel
  • 2) Talcum Powder
  • 3) Dish Washing soap
  • 4) Shower Detergent Powder


  • 1. Blot the stain: Use a paper towel or a cotton ball to remove the excess oil and grease. Make sure to press against the stain from both sides of the fabric so that it absorbs as much as possible.
  • 2. Apply a pinch of talcum powder/baby powder on the stain. The fine powder absorbs the oil, lifting the stain off the fabric. If you’re in a hurry, leave the cloth in a warm place as this helps speed up the process.
  • 3. If the stain is slightly old, pour some oil on to the stain so as to make it fresh. Follow this by sprinkling some baking soda and scrubbing it with a toothbrush. With the help of a dishwashing soap, scrub the stain further.
  • 4. Rinse and wash: The last step is to rinse the cloth with cold water and wash it thoroughly thereafter. Once rinsed with water, toss the cloth into your washing machine with a good detergent such as the Shower Detergent powder along with warm water.
