How do you get WD40 out of clothing?

Lisa from Jax, FL



Lisa, have you tried Dawn dish soap straight on the spot (rub and let set a few minutes)? I think that should take out the spot....if not after one washing, then perhaps another time or 2. I hope this works for you. (08/19/2006)

Don't Wash in Cold

Hi Lisa, As WD40 is an oil, be sure to wash it with hot water and detergent. Cold water will set the oil. Good luck! (08/21/2006)


Greased Lightning

About the Wd40 on your clothes, have you tried Greased Lighting? I would spray it and let it set for a while and then spray it again before washing it.

If it didn't come out, don't put it in the dryer, spray it some more and then let it set over night and repeat it again before washing.

I love this stuff and it get most all stains out. It may take a few treatments, but it usually gets them out.
Hope this helps. (08/22/2006)
