Washing Essential Oils from Sheets

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

A:   Here's how to remove oil from sheets: 

  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
  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.
