How do I get Vaseline stains out of fabric furniture? The stains are about a week old and I've tried dish soap, rubbing alcohol, steam cleaning and Shout. Nothing works. Any ideas?
Try buying some deep clarifying shampoo from a salon. It is made to remove residues from products used in hair but it got vaseline out of my daughters shirt. Vaseline is a patroleum product and grease actually gets out grease. You could spray WD40 on the stains to get them wet and loosen it up and then wash with a strong grease cutting dish detergent. Hope it works out for you.
How do I get Vaseline off a satin pillow?
Rub dish soap into the stain, then wash it in the washing machine on the gentle/delicate cycle.
Use Dawn, Lestoil or some other grease cutter.

Try a degreaser. I know that Dollar General makes a wonderful Degreaser called "Mean Green" it is safe on clothing and upholstery and even will remove tobacco from walls. :-)
A friend of mine wanted to know if anyone knows how to get Vaseline out of carpet. She had put some on her heels and forgot and walked across the carpet. Thanks!

I can't say for sure, but I have two suggestions:
1. Try Dawn liquid dish washing soap. it cuts through grease.
2. Lestoil, a great grease cutting detergent.
I tried to remove a Vaseline stain by washing with Woolite, but stain still there. What do I do now? Vinegar?
