How to remove a Oil Stain from a Cotton Bed Pillow Cover.

Before attempting any stain removal it is important to test the item for colorfastness. Take a white towel and apply a small amount of water to a corner of the towel. Using that corner of the towel blot a hidden area of the item you wish to spot. Check the towel for color transfer, the amount of color transferred onto the towel will give you an indication of the amount of color loss that will occur during spotting or cleaning.

It is always best to remove the stain as soon as it happens; while the stain is wet it is much easier to remove. The longer you wait the more difficult it will become; the stain will set and oxidize over time.

If the stain starts to dissipate repeat the same steps or skip to Finishing Up.

Repeat these steps again if necessary.

FINISHING UP!

When done removing the stain always finish by cleaning the entire item per manufacture care instructions. Even benign spotting agents such as these will oxidize and yellow over time.

Seek professional help if necessary. If you have a good relationship with your green dry cleaners they will be more than happy to help you with stain removal and cleaning questions.
