I donâ€™t need a reason to get dressed up nor do I care if everyone is in a t-shirt & jeans and I have feathers in my hair. Recently, I was bringing over appetizersâ€™ to a friendâ€™s party. I had them all arranged on a serving tray and was going to hop into a cab. Well halfway between my apartment and my friend’s place, all of the appetizersâ€™ fell on top of me. I was wearing my new baby- (a skirt) and still had two curlers on top of my head. I was now covered in Olive Oil, and the taxi driver kicked me and my friend out of the cab (because I had spilled something.) Completely bewildered, I stood on a street cornerâ€¦I did think my world had come to an end or was about too (okay, I can be slightly dramatic), my friend who was with me helped me put it into perspective.
What did I learn from this BABY POWDER is the trick to oil stains. I came home and poured an entire bottle practically over the skirt, changed and tried to salvage the remains of my appetizersâ€¦
The following weekend my baby (the skirt) was worn, STAIN FREE. Click here for Red Wine Stains!
Its great to hear that there’s a fix for olive oil stains. Is the dry cleaners the next step after the baby powder?
After splattering 2 spots of olive oil on a white shirt tonight, I had no fear knowing that the remedy was here in the blog.
I agree with Eliza, though: what is the step between dousing it with baby powder and wearing it out again?
In the case of my skirt I had to send it to the cleaners because of the fabric. After the baby powder and the powder has absorbed the oil. Apply some soap and water.
