We were having drinks with friends yesterday and when I wasn’t concentrating, I dropped an oily cashew dip on my favourite shirt. Is there any way I can get the stain out?

  • Rub some dish detergent into the stain prior to washing. Dish detergent is made to cut through grease. Good luck

  • We tried a paste of nappysan (or equivalent) on hubbys work shirt and it seemed to work – left it overnight and machine washed it

  • I have heard that venegar will work

  • Rub it immediately with dishwashing liquid then wash. Hope it works.

  • If haven’t tried yet ,dry bicarb soda sprinkle thick layer &press something heavy overnight ,then wash in warm water

  • Dishwashing liquid before washing it normally.

  • try drops of Morning Fresh not too much just enough to cover the stain rub it in till the texture changes it will go dryer keep rubbing and it comes a bit wetter then toss into washing machine as usual

  • Apparently white vinegar in the wash gets oil out..

  • I use vanish stain remover also.
    Depending on the fabric i also find washing in hot water helps.

  • I think it depends on the fabric too

  • I always pre wash spray and then soak – has worked wonders on stains for me so far!

  • I agree with Mrs W, dishwashing liquid rubbed in to the stain before washing should do the trick.

  • Dish washing liquid rubbed into it before the wash. It’s designed to clean oil and grease. Works every time!

  • it is so annoying when that happens. i use vanish stain remover

  • napisen or eucalyptus oil they do wonders :0
