    Default Any advice with removing oil stains from glass?

    Hi there,
    I was just wondering if anyone has any miracle cures for removing oil stains from glass? I put the lid of the rice cooker on the top of the wok last night without realising and it's left a lovely little ring of oil on it. I've definitely learned my lesson about cleaning and drying woks properly.
    Thanks in advance xxx

    I'm a little confused.. shouldn't the Oil just wash off with warm/hot soapy water? glass is non porous so it shouldn't have soaked in.

    Has it just left an oily residue - maybe rub some bi carb (as a thick paste) on to the area and see if that helps, then wash as usual.

    It's left a yellow stained ring being olive oil. I've left it soaking in the sink and it's slowly fading but I'll give the bicarb a go! Thanks so much xxx

    Bicarb and vinegar is my suggestion. I use it to clean my shower screen glass so i assume it would work fairly well with oil on glass.

    Some eucalyptus oil on a paper towel will help to remove the oil, and hot soapy water will remove the eucalyptus.

    Orange oil stain remover type spray works well, or else CLR or some sugar soap if you're desperate?
