Washing Oils from Sheets

Q: How do you remove rancid oil odors from sheets and linens? 

A:   Here are a few suggestions: 

1. Make sure sheets have all oil removed when washed - use a detergent especially formulated for removing oil (like ALL), and maybe wash them twice. 

2. If necessary, add an oil dispersant. One of the best I have found is Go-Jo - it's a mechanic's hand cleaner found in auto parts stores (generally use one or two tablespoons per wash load). 

3. Add a few drops of a good smelling disinfectant essential oil to the dryer. I suggest Sweet Orange, Lemon or Lavender. Simply place a few drops on a cloth and toss it in with the sheets.
