My parents got on to canola oil when it was "fashionable" in the early eighties, and we had it on in everything. I always thought it tasted nasty, and my parents bought me olive oil when I started cooking as I didn't like it. I had no idea about the macular degeneration link......very scary. I use olive oil for everything, except on special occasions and I can track down macadamia oil.

adding ordinary household ammonia to the wash water is supposed to help remove oil stains if they're not too set - it's worth a try

You could always use my grandmother's sure fire remedy for "impossible" stains. All you need is a small quantity of Kerosene. Soak the affected area and apply a lit match to it.

Sometimes I can fry chicken on my t-shirts and this gets out that oil every time. Concentrated Shout Ultra Gel. Apply to oil stains and let it sit overnight and wash garment next day, no oil.....works for me.
