If you don't have a Vanish stain removal product to hand then don't worry. We're still able to provide some handy hints on removing stains. Vanish will help you remove the stains even once they have dried-in.

1. If grease or motor oils stains occur, you should treat the stain immediately with hot water, allowing the fabric to remove the stain thoroughly.

2. Scrape as much as grease or motor oil as possible with the spoon, being careful not to press the stain too hard.
Blot the grease stain with paper towel, using a lifting motion until no more of the stain comes off on the paper towel. When home, follow instructions as set out above for best results.

 

Trivia

Grease and motor oil stain removal can be tricky because these items tend to have a thick consistency and dark colours. Depending on what type of material is stained and how long the stain has been sitting without treatment it can be very difficult to clean items completely. Fortunately removing grease and motor oil stains is a possibility with specially formulated Vanish Oxi Action Gel.
