Oil stains are a common occurrence when cooking up a storm in the kitchen or simply when you’re eating a tasty dinner. A splatter out of the frying pan is all it takes to ruin your clothes – but that doesn’t have to mean that your favourite item is destined for the bin. With Vanish Gold Oxi Advance in your cupboard, you can take the hard work out of removing persistent cooking stains made by oils, butter or fat from a range of materials.

For optimum results, we recommend pre-treating your garments first with Vanish Gold Oxi Advance Multi Power Powder. Then wash the item as usual with your regular detergent and a scoop of Vanish. The multi-benefit formula works to treat stains, brighten colours and get rid of odours in soaking^! Plus, it works as an antibacterial soaker, giving your washing a deep clean in soaking.

Read on to find out advice on how to remove oil stains.
