July 10, 2009, Newsletter Issue #299: Desitin Ointment / Zinc Oxide Stain Removal from Clothing

Tip of the Week

You should be able to remove Desitin ointment (zinc oxide diaper rash ointment) from clothing by first scraping off as much of the ointment as possible with a dull knife. Then, pour some baking powder on the spot, give it time to absorb the grease, then brush off. Saturate the stain with liquid laundry detergent or a laundry stain remover. Wash as usual.
