It happens more often than we would like. Those times we quickly tend to something on the stove, forget to put an apron on, and then suddenly there is a quick splash of cooking oil on our favorite pants. So how do you get cooking oil out of clothes?

I think (off hand) you'd use baking soda.
I found lemons work the best. The acids seem to mix with the fat. However, it is best to put lemon juice on it as soon as possible.
I've heard of using flour and then you steam it with an iron (but I haven't tried it myself)

Cooking oil, or any other type of grease, is notoriously difficult to get out of clothes. Although I don't buy many cleaning products, I'd highly recommend always having a stain remover stick on your cupboard for these kind of stains. I use Stain Devils, but an equivalent would be a Sard Wonder Stick.
I use a dab of neat washing up liquid and rub it into the stain. Then just rinse. You may have to do this more than once, but I find it usually works for spots of grease on clothes.
'Sard' spray immediately, then soak, with a good quality, like 'Sard', Stain Remover powder, in COLD water, until next washing load, & put item into that.
Should be good as new, then once washed!
That is a difficult one -I dont think it comes out completely
