Help! I bought some pure cotton grey combat trousers last week and I wore tham to a BBQ this weekend. I think I have spilt vegetable oil on them as I have lots of splash marks down the front of one leg. They haven't come out in the wash. Anyone got anyideas on how to get rid of the marks? They cost me £35 so I don't want to chuck them and I can't afford a new pair!
One word of advice - if using a jar from someone's garage, scrape away the top layer before you scoop some out to use.
Blokes have a nasty habit of leaving bits of motor oil in the top of the jar, you don't want to transfer that to your trousers!
had a similar problem on a linen skirt last summer - my ds gave my skirt a kiss - with his mouth full of olives and olive oil! the stain didn't come out first wash, so I put fairy washing up liquid on the stain and washed for a second time- hey presto - no more stain.
sorry that was a long winded way of saying: fairy washing up liquid!
