Apply product: Our Wash & Stain Bar is ideal for removing oil-based stains.

Work the stain: Create a lather using the soap and gently work it into the material. Make sure to use hot water. If any residue or oil is left behind, apply Stain Solution .

Pour water on the stain: For added cleaning power, put the affected area under the faucet and let the pressure of the hot water help work the stain.
