Steps for Mattress stain
If the oil stain is old and dirty, fresh this stain by pouring some amount of glycerine. Glycerine will freshen the oil in the stain and provide liquidity which can ease oil stain removal.
Use a blotting paper or absorbent dry cloth to dab the stain and absorb the excess of oil and glycerine. Repeat this dabbing few time and make sure the fabric of mattress is almost liquid oil free.
After soaking in fluids and liquid oil from the stain, you need to dry it completely. Take some cornstarch and pour it over on the oil stain and cover the oil stain with cornstarch completely. Brush the stain once to make sure the cornstarch spreads and slips deep into the mattress. Pour some more cornstarch if required and repeat. Let the cornstarch rest on the stain for some time.
After an hour or two use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of cornstarch now present on the stain and clean your mattress thoroughly to remove all the dirt and cornstarch left on it.
Rinse cloth in detergent or liquid soap and water solution. Use this wet cloth to wash the oil stain and rub the stain repeatedly till the fabric of the mattress is clear of oil.
Start drying up the stain on the mattress by taking two cloths and pressing the mattress above and below. Get rid of all the water and detergent present in the stain by repeating the process again.
