    Oil splashes in clothes 17th Apr 18 at 10:37 AM
    Apologies for asking - I was sure I would find the answer in the search but couldn't see anything

    Anyway, what is the best way to get cooking oil splashes out of clothes? DDs work aprons are washed after every shift but as soon as I iron them you can see the oil stains are still there.

    I have had success using washing up liquid rubbed into the stain before its washed, you can only try it and see.

    Brilliant stuff this...

    Spray it and leave it for a few minutes for it to soak into the oil.
