Oil Spots & Stains
Oil makes food taste good, keeps our baby’s bottoms soft, keeps our skin moist and supple, keeps wood from drying out, ensures a deep, dark tan, and creates great atmosphere in a lamp. Oil serves a great many purposes in our lives, with the unfortunate drawback that oil stains whatever it touches.
It also keeps machinery running, but that’s a different animal altogether, so if you’ve got that kind of oil stain on clothes, concrete or other surfaces, please visit our motor oil page.
Removing oil stains from non-porous surfaces is usually a pretty easy clean up . . . if you do it immediately. A damp soapy sponge is pretty much all you need for getting oil splatters off your stove or off the counter, but if you don’t do it immediately, it can present a problem, like when you have grease build up.
The bigger challenge is, of course, when oil gets on a porous or absorbent material such as fabric, clothing, upholstery, carpet, suede, or leather. The variety of products you may have to deal with includes:
- Cooking oil such as olive, safflower, soy, vegetable, canola, sesame, etc.
- Baby oil, petroleum jelly, suntan lotion or other protective or moisturizing lotions or creams, including massage oil, makeup remover and other cosmetic products
- Lamp oil and scented products for diffusers
If you get a dark, ugly oil stain on clothes, rugs, or linens, simple laundering will not get it out - and if you run it through the dryer you run the risk of making that stain permanent.
If oil is left un-cleaned in the kitchen or on any hard surface for even short periods of time, it will mix with dust and other airborne particles, and become solidified, sticky and hard to remove.
Whether you need to remove oil from your stove, counters, kitchen cabinets, or anywhere in the kitchen, or from clothes, upholstery, fabrics, rugs, carpet, bedding, or table linens - Goof Off® Heavy Duty Spot Remover and Degreaser will do the job, easily and effectively.
It cuts through even the toughest oily messes, quickly tackling stains that defeat ordinary household cleaners. Goof Off®’s micro-emulsion formula penetrates and then dissolves the oil . . . that’s why we call it The Miracle Remover!
