You try to be as careful as possible, but that cheesy casserole spilled over onto your attractive fabric oven mitts. Here’s what to do to prevent light grease stains from ruining your mitts or potholders.
Before you use your new potholders or oven mitts, thoroughly spray them with scent-free laundry starch. Let them sit overnight to dry completely. You won’t need to wash them very often, but each time you do, spray again after washing. The starch forms a coating that protects the potholder or mitt, preventing oily stains from seeping through the fabric.
