  2. Place a piece of cardboard between layers of your clothes to avoid transferring any oil to other parts of the fabric
  3. Blot the stain with a clean, dry cloth to remove as much excess oil as possible
  4. Apply liquid dish soap to the stain as pre-treatment
  5. Rinse with warm water, then wash the garment as usual
