I was splattered with corn oil while cooking and I have several spots on a new pair of capris that haven't been washed. They are a burnt orange in color and are 98% cotton and 2% spandex. How can I remove the oil stains?

It's almost impossible to remove spattered cooking oil from clothing. Try sewing several appliques on the stained spots. Always, and I say always, wear an apron when cooking or baking.
Please see the post I submitted of how to sew a Baker's Apron. http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf69452175.tip.html.
Put baking soda, or baby powder or alcohol on the spots. Let it stay overnight, then wash. Good luck. (04/11/2010)
Dawn dish washing liquid works every time. Pour it on the stain, mush it in and let it sit awhile or overnight. Then wash as usual and the oil stain will be gone! (04/12/2010)
