How do I remove Vicks VapoRub from clothes after they have been thru the dryer? Is it still possible to get the stain out? What do you recommend I use?
Use Blue Dawn to remove grease. Lestoil is also good.
This organic stuff is great for that:
You may have set the stain when placed in the dryer but trying the solutions suggested will not do any harm and may even work.
You could try Awesome Orange; Simple Green or even dish soap Place any of the solutions on the spot and let it stay for 15-30 minutes before washing. Wash as usual. I believe this may be one time that hot water should be used.
It works great because I have multiple stains before on my sweatpants and all you have do is that soak it for I think like 5 to 10 minutes before putting in the wash because Dawn dish soap absorbs the stain and that's wonderful very satisfied
Didn't work for me. I used Shout for grease stains AND blue Dawn, let it sit for about 30 minutes and it didn't budge the stains.
How do I remove Vicks stains from jogging pants?
I think you'll need a degreaser for the oily stain: Awesome Orange; Simple Green (found in automotive supply, yet many uses); even dish soap, etc.

If the stain hasn't been set in, I would try one of the prewash sprays. If it is on sheets I wouldn't worry about it.
