How to get set in oil stains out of your clothes (using things you already have at home!)
Do you ever pull a clean shirt out of your dryer, slip it on and see an oil stain on it? It’s infuriating! Where do these things come from?!?!I have so many shirts ruined by oil stains. And I don’t have that many shirts to begin with. So I knew I had to find a way to get rid of these stains for good.I hit the internet and found quite a few places. This post from Northern Belle Diaries was a good place to start. But she used WD40. And I didn’t have any. Plus I just wasn’t going to further ruin a shirt if this method didn’t pan out! So instead of WD40 I decided to use just good old fashioned Resolve.
