How to remove oil stains

– The first thing to do when you stain something is to sprinkle talcum powder on it. This step is very important because it absorbs the oil residue while avoiding the ring to spread. For a natural alternative, try potato starch to absorb the grease.

– To remove the stains on your clothes, you can also use a mix of a tablespoon of baking soda and half a lemon juice. Spread the mixture on the stain, rub slightly and let it soak for about an hour. At this point, immerse the garment in sparkling water and with circular movements rub it on the stain until it is gone.

– If the stain persists, soak the fabric in sparkling water with two tablespoons of white vinegar for about ten minutes. Then, add baking soda and let it soak for an hour. After having removed all the residue, make sure there are no rings by applying Marseille soap on the stain.

– Try the amazing DIY degreaser by mixing a tablespoon of baking soda and a teaspoon of vinegar. Let act directly on the stain for about an hour. After that, rub gently and rinse in a bowl. At this point, there should be no residue or rings left.
