One of the pitfalls of cooking, at least for me, is the toll it takes on my clothes. Whenever I buy something new, I say to myself, "I'm not going to wear this while I'm cooking, because I'll ruin it". Inevitably, I wear it and it gets ruined. For me, it seems to be olive oil staining my clothes. But I seem to be a magnet for tomato sauce, too. A few years ago, I discovered Oxyclean. It has saved my clothes on more than one occasion. Seriously, a white shirt and beets? Oxyclean to the rescue.
I've struggled with oil stains on my clothes for years, though. Until this summer. I was pregnant with my son and went through my nesting phase. One day I made an impulse purchase of Pine Sol and cleaned my whole house. While reading the bottle I discovered you could use it in the laundry. Since its a degreaser, I decided to spot clean my oil stained shirts and aprons. And it worked! Even clothes that had been through the dryer and I thought stains were set into came clean.
Now, I keep a spay bottle of pine sol in my laundry room. Try it out!
