- Pour a small amount of liquid dish soap directly onto the stain and rub gently into the fabric using your finger tips or an old toothbrush
- Let this sit for another 5 minutes so that it can penetrate further into any remaining oil particles in order to loosen them up even more
- Use a damp cloth or sponge to blot away both the residual dish soap and oil residue from the clothing item until no more comes off onto your rag when you press down on areas around where you initially applied dish soap
- Put detergent either directly onto or inside of your washing machine’s detergent dispenser depending on what type of washer you have, then launder as usual according to garment label instructions (ideally hot water)
- Hang dry after laundering or tumble in dryer if appropriate for material according to care label directions
How Do You Get Oil Out of Clothes After They Have Been Washed And Dried?
If you discover oil on clothes after they have been washed and dried, the best course of action is to treat it quickly. Start by blotting up as much of the oil as possible with an absorbent material such as a paper towel or clean cloth. Then apply a pre-treatment stain remover to the affected area and let it sit for at least five minutes before attempting to launder the garment again.
If this fails, try soaking your clothing in a solution made from equal parts vinegar and water for 30 minutes before laundering again. For tougher stains, consider using dish soap or laundry detergent instead of pre-treatment stain remover.

After that, apply a generous amount of liquid laundry detergent directly onto the stain and work into it using your fingertips or a brush.
Allow this mixture to sit for 10 minutes before washing on warm water in your washing machine (for more stubborn stains you may want to use hot water). If there is still residue remaining after washing, repeat these steps until all evidence of the stain has been removed.
Are Oil Stains Permanent on Clothes?
The answer to whether oil stains on clothes are permanent depends on the type of fabric, as well as how quickly you can act.

If treated properly and in a timely manner, many oils can be removed from natural-fiber garments with just a few simple steps.
You should begin by dabbing at the stain with paper towel or an absorbent cloth to remove excess oil before pre-treating it with laundry detergent and water. Afterward, machine wash the stained garment using hot water, heavy-duty laundry detergent, plus any other suggested additives like bleach or color safe oxygen cleaner for extra effectiveness. Keep in mind that some stains may require multiple washes in order for them to completely disappear—so don’t give up hope if your first attempt is unsuccessful!
