Nothing ruins a good piece of clothing quite like an oil stain.
We’ve all faced that moment of dread when oil gets on our clothes while we’re eating or cooking. We hesitantly look down to survey the damage, only to discover there’s a huge stain on our favorite shirt.
Sometimes, store bought removers just can’t get the job done. Luckily, we’ve learned about a brilliant hack to get rid of those extra stubborn stains that won’t go down without a fight.
With this simple and quick procedure, you can say goodbye to the stain in a short time.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Liquid dish soap
- A toothbrush
- Baking soda
- A piece of cardboard.
To start with, place the piece of cardboard inside the shirt separating the back and front of the shirt so you won’t affect the side that is clean. Use WD-40 to spray the problematic area and scrub it with a Q-tip.
Put some baking soda on the stain. Use a generous amount of baking soda. The oil needs a lot of baking soda to be absorbed.
With the help of the toothbrush scrub the baking soda. You should keep scrubbing till you notice the emergence of clumps.
After that, you should add the liquid dish soap. Put some of it on the area treated with baking soda and use the toothbrush again. You can use a rag at this point because the baking soda will become sticky.
So, keep scrubbing for a while!
And that’s it! Remove the piece of cardboard and put the shirt in the washing machine together with the rest of your clothes.
When the washing is finished, you should have a perfectly clean shirt. In case there are still some signs of staining, perform the procedure again. We encourage you to share this trick with your family and friends because it can be very useful!
