Another method to get old stains out is to mix hydrogen peroxide, borax and Dawn dishwashing soap into a paste. Put on the spot, scrub well with a brush, then wash as usual. This is great for getting even old stains out, although for tough ones you may have to repeat it.
For getting oil stains out, work heavy-duty liquid detergent or liquid dish detergent into the oil stain. Do not dilute the detergent. Alternatively, spray the stain with an aerosol type laundry pre-treatment spray. For more details on this method, click here.
