10 Quick Tips for Removing Stains from Clothing

Oil Stains

If you have unsightly stains on your pillowcase, don't worry. Pillows often get stained by sweat and natural body oils. Sometimes, simply tossing them in the washer will do the trick and lift the stain right out. But if you can only dream of such an easy life -- if trying to get oil stains off your bed is keeping you up all night -- listen up.

Oily stains on pillowcases can be removed with plain shampoo (just like oil in your hair). It's that easy. Just pour some on the stained areas, rub it in, rinse thoroughly and launder the pillowcases as usual.

Now you can sleep safe and sound, knowing you'll be able to get that stain out in the morning.
