A month ago I've posted some tips on stain removal particularly for beer, chocolate, and coffee stains. Here's another batch of tips for removing stains from cooking oil, fresh fruits and ice cream.
  • Oil Stains
When we cook we at times we can't avoid getting our clothes splattered with cooking oil even if you're wearing an apron. Oil stains can be ugly and the residue can just ruin our clothes. They key to getting out oily and greasy stains is to wash clothing in the hottest water that is safe for the fabric.
  1. Remove as much excess oil as possible with a dull knife or spoon.
  2. Apply 3-5 minutes to allow it to go completely through the fabric.
  3. Use liquid detergent to rub through the stained fabric.
  4. Allow the garment to sit for a few minutes.
  5. Wash in the hottest water safe for the fabric. Check tags to determine what water temperature to use for washing.
  • Fresh Fruit Stains

  1. Treat stain as quickly as possible. Use a spoon or dull knife to remove the excess fruit.

  2. Rinse the stained area with cold water.

  3. Rub liquid detergent gently into the stain.

  4. Let the stain stand for at least 5 minutes before rinsing hot water through the back of the stain over the sink. Making the water as hot as you can will force the stain back out through the fabric.

  5. Apply a stain remover stick, gel, or spray, and wash regularly with liquid detergent.

  6. If the stain remains and the garment is white, or you have tested it for colorfastness, use a mild bleaching agent like hydrogen peroxide or white vinegar. You can also use lemon juice. Use a sponge to apply. Rinse thoroughly.

  7. Apply stain remover stick, gel, or apray again and rewash with liquid detergent.

    Stain Removal Tip:
    If you can’t get to the stain right away, try sprinkling salt on the affected area. Salt will help absorb the stain until you have time to treat it.
  • Ice Cream Stains
Fresh Stains

  1. Treat stains as soon as possible for the best results. Put the stained fabric into cold water for 5-10 minutes.
  2. If the stain remains, rub detergent into the stained area and soak in room temperature water for 1/2 an hour. Rub the stain every 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add a stain remover stick, gel, or spray to the stained area, and allow to sit for 7-10 minutes.
  4. Repeat as needed until no stain remains.
  5. Wash according to directions for clothing.

Dried Stains
  1. Remove as much of the stain as possible using a spoon or dull knife.
  2. Rub detergent into the stained area, and allow the stain to soak in cold water for 30 minutes. Rub the stain every 3-5 minutes.
  3. Repeat steps 3-5 for fresh stains.
