How to remove Corn Oil Stains from a Blouse.

How to remove Corn Oil Stains from a Blouse.

Corn oil stains at times are difficult to remove at home unless you know the secret. Let me introduce you to some green oil stain removers that we use in our green dry cleaner and are readily available at the local grocery stores.

Dawn Dishwashing Liquid:

· Apply the Dawn Dishwashing Liquid directly to the corn oil stain.

· Tamp the stained area with a toothbrush to help the Dawn penetrate the oil stain.

· Let Dawn penetrate for a few minutes.

· Rinse with fresh water.

If the first steps did not achieve adequate results then continue with a citrus base oil degreaser.

CitraSolv Degreaser:

· Create a spotting solution with 1 part Dawn Dishwashing Liquid, 2 part CirtaSolv degreaser, and 2 parts water.

· Apply the spotting solution directly to the corn oil stain.

· Tamp the stain lightly with a soft brush (toothbrush) to help the solution penetrate into the oil stain.

· Let the solution penetrate for a few minutes.

· Rinse with fresh water.

Oil stain may be stubborn, repeat these steps again if necessary.


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.
