Hi there. Does anybody have a miraculous remedy for removing oil stains? I discovered to my horror that I have a large stain on my white overall and have tried everything I can think of to remove it, other than bleach. Any hints/info gratefully received! Looks like I will have to buy new overalls...

|Have you tried any of the stain devils one for oil & grease?|

|I was given this tip years ago by a young french woman: pile talcum powder on top of the oil mark and leave over night, then wash in the usual way. Mostly works!|

|Thanks for that tip - not heard of that one so will give it a go. I've tried every sort of stain devil available to no avail!|

|Sounds mad but works on most stains and grese spots! put some washing up liquid on the stains and then wash as normal|

|A little bit of old-fashioned washing soda crystals in the machine usually gets oil stains out of my tunics.|

|Thanks Nicki - I'll bear that in mind. I found Gill's tip of talc was excellent too.|
