Evo Oil Sprayer is the most controlled and neat way to dispense oil for food preparation. Even with Evo's controlled spray, there is always the chance your clothing will get stained during cooking or eating. Here are some great ways to remove stains caused by grease or food using simple household substances!
REMOVING GREASE STAINS
Prep: Grease stains are difficult because oil repels water, which means that any H20 contact might just set the stain permanently. Try to dab it gently with an absorbent paper towel, soaking up any excess grease before doing any treatment.
Handy Household Cleaners:
DISH SOAP: Apply a bit of uncolored dish soap and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.
BABY POWDER: Pour it and press it firmly onto the stain, and leave overnight.
CHALK: Rub it onto the stain to absorb the oil. Brush off before washing.
CORNSTARCH: Sprinkle on the stain, let it sit for 10 minutes, and shake it out before washing. (This works especially well on suede and leather.)
VINEGAR: Moisten a paper towel with a bit of undiluted white vinegar, and dab at the stain before immediately washing. (This method often works on old stains.)
ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER: Just blot any oil or grease spots with a bit of the powder.
REMOVING FOOD STAINS
Prep: With foods rich in oil or butter, avoid water and dab the excess with a paper towel. For everything else, flush the stain out from behind with cold water as best you can, soaking up any excess grease before doing any treatment.
Handy Household Cleaners:
VINEGAR: Sponge the stain with white vinegar and wash. If the stain is really bad, try soaking the garment overnight in a solution of three parts vinegar to one part water. (This works best on cotton fabrics.)
SALT: Sprinkle a bit of salt on the stain and let it sit for about five minutes. Rinse with cold water while rubbing the stain. Repeat as needed, then wash. (This works best with wine stains.)
WHITE WINE: (Perfect for wine stains) Just pour the white wine over the red wine stain before washing.
CLUB SODA: (Try to avoid using for any particularly greasy stains.) Sprinkle the stain with salt and pour the seltzer water over. Leave overnight.
EGG YOLK: Mix the yolk with a few drops of alcohol and warm water. Apply the mixture to the stain with a sponge. Let sit for a couple of minutes and rinse. (Effective especially with coffee stains.)
1 spritz with the Evo Oil Sprayer equals roughly 1/8 tsp of oil or dressing, which amounts to less than 1/2 tsp! You'll be shocked with how much oil and dressing you save yourself with the Evo as you realize that just a few spritzes in your pan or on a salad is all you need Pick yours up at Kitchen Kapers today!
When you need to clean your Evo Oil Sprayer, grab a cup of warm soapy water, remove the sprayer from the bottle, position the bottom of the Evo tube inside the water cup, and spritz the soapy water through the sprayer. Follow with a cup of plain warm water until the suds are flushed out of the line. The base is dishwasher safe!
Looking for a delicious side dish for that summer cookout you're hosting? Try making grilled squash, zucchini, eggplant, and red peppers. Use your Evo Oil Sprayer to spritz them with olive oil before throwing them on the grill. For added taste and flavor, try basting them in orange juice, apple cider, vinegar, and garlic. They taste great paired with a micro brew!
