Removing Oil Spots from Unsealed Terra Cotta Jug

0 0EmailPrintFollow

How do you remove oil spots from an unsealed terra cotta ice tea jug. It is unsealed on the outside but sealed on inside. I tried Dawn, but it left rings. There must be another home remedy out there. Help!

I found this on cleaning terra cotta floor tiles: http://www.howtocleanstuff.net/how-to-remove-oil-stains-from-terracotta/
I will look a little further!

Short of evening out the stains by evenly applying oil on the entire outside of the pot, then gently washing and then sealing with a terra cotta sealer you could call a terrazzo/terra cotta flooring dealer and ask what chemicals (which will be harsh chemicals) that might work to remove the stains.
