  1. I accidentally knocked over my oil dispenser when passing it in the kitchen. It spilled oil on my bathrobe, and on the scatter rug in front of the sink. I threw the and the scatter rug in the wash right away. They came out without any stains, but my robe smells of oil. I've washed it twice, and used sprays, febreze , perfume, anything I can think of, but the oiled odor remain! It’s my warmest robe and I hate to toss it. Any ideas?
