I read the same thing on the Internet applied to oilve oil but have not
tried it yet. What's the concentration?
All our cloths are saturted with olive oil. This sounds expensive and a
real nuisance. Surely a comercial cleaning detergent must be available!
i FEEL your pain!!!
i have been known make a few laundry blunders. i have washed the
following in a full load of clothing and then had to re-wash/fix.
multiple tubes of chapstick
a BLUE crayon
a bottle of purple nail polish
no less than $50 in paper money, $3,000 in change at $1,400 in payroll
the crayon proved to be most challenging. (a multi-faceted endeavor that
proved to be a pain in my blue-stained butt!) wd-40/dawn. (eyes
i have recently found an amazing thing to remove greasy substances from
the wash. i did research about the carmex... and did a few of the
suggested methods to no avail.
as i cleaned out the under-sink area i was annoyed by the number of tubs
of hand cleanser the hubby has. i was annoyed for several reasons...
ONE, he leaves the nasty/grease covered tubs BY the sink when he's
finished... when he KNOWS that is NOT where they live (if you were here
you'd have seen the FLAMES shooting from my eyes!)
and two, there were many opened cans!!! all he needs is ONE. he has an
odd Goop (tm) hoarding issue that might need "professional addressing".
Goop, lightbulps and air filters. weird.
try this stuff.
i have since seen suggested uses NOT listed on the company website.
everything from washing your cat (!?!?!?!?!!) to getting vasaline outta
(perhaps if i spent more time checking pockets i wouldn't HAVE to know
these fabulous laundry tips!) ;)
I'd say enough water to wet the cloth and a teaspoon of baking soda.
I discovered it when I sprinkled a little baking soda on the greasy film
in the kitchen sink. I wiped with a greasy dish cloth and when I rinsed
the cloth it was no longer greasy. Now if my cloth is greasy I clean it
by cleaning the sink.
Before, I'd throw a greasy cloth into the laundry because nothing in the
kitchen seemed to remove coconut oil very well. Baking soda seems to
turn the oil into soap.

Saw your post (I don't post because of the spam) I don't know how your
attempts so far have affected the stain, but in the future ask for a
product called Goop at your hardware store. It's what mechanics use to
get motor oil out of their clothes. Some grociers have it in small
containers. It's affordable and comes in a tin. Works on a variety of

It prompts me to correct the original miss statment. Iam not asking for
stain removal. Rather "garden variety" washing of dish cloths. we use
large amounts of olive oil in our normal diet. the consequenct is
continuous need to wash out the oil. Nothing works!
jamacrae... my GOD.
you copied/pasted an e-mail from a person that doesn't like to post here...
because of spam. not only was it confusing... but she was trying to HELP
you with your laundry issue. you posted her e-mail address!!!
i hate to do it.. but i'm pointing the "poor-newsgroup-etiquette-naughty-
she was right... get some Goop.
thanks for your constructive critisizm (don't hate to do it) and my
appology to Andrea Lonian. itwas not my intent to make that copying
mistake. It was an honest mistake and I hope I learned not to do such
