I have searched the internet for a slam dunk, tried and true method for removing silicone lube stains. We’ve tried Dawn, oxyclean, and other recommended cleaning products. We’ve soaked, scrubbed, and scoured. We’ve washed over and over. Silicon lube stains have remained truly annoying and confounding. We have officially given up and just immediately take the soiled sheet to the dry cleaners at $12 a pop.
However, somehow the dry cleaner is able to consistently get the stains out. We need that product!
Seriously, we would love some tried and true recommendations. The only thing we haven’t dared try is further dousing the sheet in lube. Yes, this is an internet recommendation.
I have used a cleaner called Genesis 950 that will remove stuff like old latex paint. Last time I bought it though it seemed they no longer had smaller sizes. But it is good for a lot of stuff and is an excellent carpet cleaner and oder remover. So as a rental owner you might consider purchasing it anyway. Maybe try amyl acetate. Dry cleaners use a variety of flammable and toxic products that you might not want to have around anyway.
