We’re sorry to hear that you’ve got engine oil on your jeans! To remove an engine oil stain from your jeans, you’ll need an old towel, dish soap, and a soft cloth.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to remove the engine oil stain from your jeans:
  • Lay your jeans flat on the ground or table. Position the old towel underneath the stain.
  • Apply a little bit of dish soap to the stain. Dip your cloth in hot water and rub the detergent into the stain
  • Let the detergent sit for 5-10 minutes depending on the severity of the stain.
  • wash your jeans as usual. Check your washed jeans for any sign of the stain
  • If a sign of the stain remains, repeat these steps without drying your jeans. Only dry your jeans once the stain is gone.
