If you don't have a Vanish stain removal product to hand then don't worry. We're still able to provide some handy hints on removing stains. Vanish will help you remove the stains even once they have dried-in.

Our top oil & grease stain removal tip is to attack the stain rapidly! Oil & Grease stains will become more difficult to remove later if you don't treat them immediately as they start to set into the fabric.

Take a clean, damp paper towel or cloth and dab the oil stain for a few minutes. Be careful not to spread the stain.
Follow Vanish instructions as above.
