Because it is fairly thin, baby oil can simply drip or spill to clothes. And because it is oil, it can be tough to get out of clothes and could not come out through a regular wash. Fortunately there is a solution to get baby oil out of your child’s clothes. Here’s how:
Before you do anything, drastic, first try treating the oil-stained baby clothes using pre-wash or pre-treatment stain removers that permeate through the stain and loosen its bond with the fabric, and then wash them in accordance with care instructions. If this can not work, there are a handful of things you can do to take baby oil out of your child’s clothes.
Oil stain could be removed quickly if you address it as fast as possible. First, lay the soiled clothes on a set surface such as a table. Sprinkle cornstarch over the stained areas so that a few of the oil will be absorbed. Allow it sit for 5 to a quarter-hour for maximum absorption. Brush the cornstarch off afterwards using a dry sponge.
Next, pour a little bit of liquid dish or laundry detergent onto the stained area and gently rub it in to the fabric of the clothes using a soft, damp sponge. Let it sit for about 15 minutes.
After letting it sit for several minutes, rinse the stained area by running it under hot water. Keep rinsing and soon you have removed all the suds from the detergent soap. The majority of the soap should have been removed during this stage in the process as well.
Pour several drops of dish or laundry detergent again to the areas. Or, you can apply a pre-wash stain treatment if you want. Next, throw the clothes into the washing machine. Add a baby-safe laundry detergent and run your baby’s clothes through a warm water wash. If the material does not allow it, or if the care instructions say you can’t wash the clothing item in tepid to warm water, then it is better to run it in cold or water.
Dry the washed clothing items on a clothes line instead of in the dryer. After the clothes have dried, check if you may still find any stains remaining. If you may still find stains on the clothes, pour in a few drops of dish or laundry detergent on to the spot once again and wash the clothes again in warm water (if the material and/or care instructions permit) and baby-safe laundry detergent.
