How to Remove Mayonnaise Stains from a Pillow Case.

The most popular mayonnaise on the west coast of the United States is Best Foods Real Mayonnaise and on the east coat is Hellemann’s Real Mayonnaise. The ingredients of these two mayonnaises are egg, oil, and vinegar. Although eggs are a part of the ingredients we do not need to concern ourselves with it. When other ingredients are accompanied by large amounts of oil, the oil creates a lubricant that will not readily allow those ingredients to penetrate the material. Once we remove the oil the other ingredient will be removed as well. All we need is a good oil remover.


What is an oil remover?


Dawn Dishwashing Liquid is one of my favorite that we use in our stores. It is a great oil remove because it’s designed to remove oils from your dishes.


CITRASOLV is a great citrus based oil remover.


Test for color bleeding in a hidden area of the garment before proceeding with stain removal. Using a white towel apply a small amount of the solution onto the towel and dab a hidden area of the garment. If color transfers to the towel re-evaluate the use of the product and technique. Rubbing and scrubbing can cause excess color lost.


Finish by cleaning the entire item as recommended by the care label.


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 questions.
