Remove ear wax build-up
Because it is quite thin, baby oil can easily drip or spill on to clothes. And because it is oil, it can be tough to get out of clothes and may not come out through a regular wash. Fortunately there is a way to get baby oil out of your child's clothes. Here is 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 according to care instructions. If this does not work, there are a couple of things you can do to take baby oil out of your child's clothes.
Oil stain can be removed quickly if you treat it as quickly as possible. First, lay the soiled clothes on a flat surface such as a table. Sprinkle cornstarch over the stained areas so that some of the oil will be absorbed. Let it sit for 5 to 15 minutes for maximum absorption. Brush the cornstarch off afterwards using a dry sponge.
Next, pour a bit of liquid dish or laundry detergent onto the stained area and gently rub it into 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 warm water. Keep rinsing until you have removed all the suds from the detergent soap. Most of the soap should have been removed during this stage in the process as well.
Pour a few drops of dish or laundry detergent again on to the areas. Or, you can apply a pre-wash stain treatment if you wish. Next, throw the clothes into the washing machine. Add in 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 warm water, then it is better to run it in cold or water.
Dry the washed clothing items on a clothes line rather than in the dryer. After the clothes have dried, check if there are still any stains remaining. If there are still stains on the clothes, pour in a few drops of dish or laundry detergent on to the spot once more and wash the clothes again in warm water (if the material and/or care instructions permit) and baby-safe laundry detergent.
