    oil stains

    I spilt biodiesel on my good carhartt cotton jacket. Tried washing it twice with various stain removers. No good, and jacket was going to the work cloths bin. But, I just tried again, with 'sards oxy plus degreaser', and perfect, not a mark. Worked on WVO stains as well. Gotta be stoked!

    Rub your byproduct (glycerol) into the stain, then wash as normal - always works for me.

    Yet another reason making bio is better than SVO. I dont have any byproduct to wash clothes in.

    Trouble with making bio is you always have too much byproduct to know what to do with! You can only make so much soap, fire bricks or floor cleaner with this stuff!
