Remove Oily Stains from Clothing with Common Kitchen Items

Oil stains on your clothes are part and parcel of cooking. Act fast and they won't stay on. Food52 has a quick trick to remove them with common kitchen ingredients like baking soda and a little bit of dishwashing liquid.

Sprinkle powder on the stain (flour, baking soda, or baby powder). Tap it into the stain and let it sit to absorb. Brush off the excess, then apply dishwashing liquid directly to the stain and dab (don't rub) that in. Launder in the warmest water allowable for the particular fiber that your linens are made of. Repeat the process if any of the stain is left after the first try.

The full post has a few other tips too, like rubbing chalk on the stain, as well as some methods to prevent those stains in the first place.
