My daughter has been taking mineral oil for her constipation and unfortunately it sometimes leaks out and has ruined many outfits. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to remove these stains. Thank you so much.

Im not 100% sure this will work on clothing, so test it on a small piece. Put a good amount of baking soda on the stain, then spray/ sprinkle some white vinegar over the baking soda. It will go really bubbly and smell very strongly of vinegar. Put in wash and tu-da! Stain gone! Also works wonders on stained carpets.

the best remedy i have for removing oil is to mix equal parts dishwashing liquid and bi carbonate soda. mix it into a paste, if needed a little water will help this. Apply this is a paste to the stain and let it dry. Put it in the washing basket and wash with your next wash. Can be left there for a week and after you have done the washing it should of come out. If not try again. It works wonders on cooking oil. Hope this helps :)
