I was cooking dinner and splattered cooking oil all over my new and very cute pink top. Does anyone know how to get oil out of clothing?

if you don't get it out right away it will set, I would use DAWN, and wash ASAP. I do massage and stain my clothes often with oil......... hate to say but it never comes out.

Not just any dish liquid use Dawn and if that won't work see if you can find LESTOIL. This is a product my mom used to use on my dads oily pants from work. It always worked, My husband is a mechanic and I use it on his T-shirts, it gets out oil, transmission fluis, brake fluid you name it. Let me know if it worked.

Dish soap as SOON as you stain. It cuts grease. Pour some on with a bit of water and rub the article of clothing against itself. Wash it immediately following. This just happened to me on the weekend. I dropped butter from my corn on the cob on my shorts and I did the dish soap thing and it came right out.

try putting salt on the stain and sitting it in the sun the salt should draw out the oil it may try 2x if shirt is very large then brush off salt and wash like normal

Dawn (other dish soaps don't work as well) has worked great for us - even if the stain has been set it can sometimes get it out.

I use Dawn as well for any grease or oil spots. I always rinse it in cold water and then let the Dawn soak in. Always check before you dry it incase it didn't get all of it off. Once it's been in the dryer, it's as good as ruined! =)

I use Original Dawn dish soap on things like this. I have also used Goo Gone.
