Oily road water might have all the colors of the rainbow, but it’s not something you want to wear. Your garment might seem ruined after getting splashed, but try out these tips from Tide to help you get rid of oily road water stains.
Pre-treat:Using a plastic bucket, create a soaking solution by adding 1 ounce or 1 ½ tablespoons of Tide Plus Bleach Alternative Liquid per gallon of warm water. Allow the garment to soak for up to 30 minutes, weighting the item with a white towel to keep it totally submerged.
Load:Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washer with other items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.
Wash:Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
Unload:When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the stain persists after washing, pretreat using Tide HE Turbo Clean Liquid. (pour Tide on to cover stain and let set for 20 minutes). Then, rewash in warm water with 1 use of Tide before drying.
