There’s nothing worse than throwing on a new shirt, only to get oil splattered over dinner.
Well, according to cleaning expert Nat Milenkovska, that could soon be a thing of the past – and all thanks to a 99p miracle product that removes stubborn oil stains in seconds.
Nat took to TikTok and shared a post with the caption: “DON’T DON’T THROW YOUR OIL BATTERY CLOTHES!
“Watch to see how you can remove stubborn oil stains.
In the clip, she begins: “Guys, if you’re like me, you should wear nice sweaters when you cook with oil.”
Showing off her oil-stained shirt, she continued: “As you can see here, I have some very stubborn oil stains and I’ll show you how to remove them.”
Nat then urged her social media followers to get some eucalyptus oil, which can be purchased for as little as 99 cents.
“I use a small syringe plunger so it can be evenly distributed over the stains,” she says.

“So what eucalyptus oil does is it reactivates your stubborn stains.”
The cleaning expert adds: “You can now use this on new oil stains, old oil stains… I recently made a sweater that’s been in storage for a year and it works – here it is. a miracle…”
“So as you can see, I really just went through every single place I could find…
“Once you’re done with this, just put it in the washing machine and go through a normal cycle as you normally would with your clothes.
“And then when it’s dry, you’ll see them disappear for yourself!”
According to the cleaning experts at First for womenEucalyptus oil “contains antibacterial compounds (namely eucamalol and limonene) that make it a natural antiseptic” that can remove stubborn oil stains.
They go on to say that you just dip a pen, coffee or grease stain in the oil, let it soak in, and then throw it in the washing machine.
