I read that WD40 would take tomato stain out of clothes, and it did, but now how do I get the WD40 oil stain out?

I use Goo Gone product on stains like oil, butter etc. Just pour some on the stain and leave it on for a while (couple of hours at least) than wash it in the washing machine.
Lestoil gets out all kinds of stains. It actually got the car door jamb grease out of my light colored rain coat.

Greased Lightening is awesome. Spray and let soak a few minutes and then scrub it with an old toothbrush or something and keep repeating (about 5 or 6 times). This stuff is awesome and it works well with Magic Marker on clothes and ink as well. The only place around my area that sells it is a Dollar General store.
As a steel worker, I tend to get alot of oil on me. Let's not even get into the smell! lol! Now I don't work w/WD40, but I have found that (idea from my dad) pouring in a full can of dark soda (aka Coke) will help out. Keep in mind, full load setting, and nothing else in washer. ( I know, what a waste!!) Hope that helps!
I always use greased lightning on oil stains and they come out about every time....Won't hurt to give it a try.

How do you get WD40 out of clothing?

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)
My sons favorite sweatshirt got WD40 soaked on the sleeve. I've tried soaking it in Oxyclean overnight but that didn't do it. Any ideas?
