How to get oil stains out of clothing by only using what you'll find in the kitchen!

One of the biggest ways to be frugal with fashion is to buy good clothes that can last forever. For me the clothes might last, but they have oil stains all over the front after a while.  I never knew what to do until a friend told me to try dish washing detergent. From my experience Dawn is the best, though others have told me that any traditional dish soap works (very few organic ones work).

Using Dawn has worked on new stains and old stains that have already been washed a hundred times!  While I can’t guarantee it will restore your shirt to looking new, once you have the oil stain there really isn’t any reason to not try it.

To show you one result:

My husband and I went out for a nice date night and I wore a “new to me” dress.  During dinner I managed to drip oil right on the top front of it.

As soon as we came home I grabbed some Dawn dish soap from the kitchen.  Rubbed it in and then let it sit.  You want to let it sit for at least one hour before washing.

After running it through the washing machine, the dress is just like new (I just need to iron it)!
