Why are there oil spots on all my clothes?

I just did a load of laundry and put away clothes. I noticed that there are shirts and pants with oil stains on them! It annoys the crap out of me. What could be causing this? I use liquid Ecos detergent. Any ideas?

ETA: This isn't the first time it's happened!

What does your dh do for work? Mine left a yellow construction crayon in his pants once and it melted all over out clothes. I was so mad. Lol

He's a chef. It's weird because the last load I did before this one was diapers I'm pretty sure.

I would have been so mad about that too!

When the detergent is poured on top of clothes it leaves those marks. Even f&c.

You hit the jackpot, wish mine could cook.lol

Did you forget the wash for a while or something? Maybe he had grease on his clothes and sitting in the washer it touched and got on the other clothes?

As for the oil marks on your clothes I pinned on Pinterest you can get it out with a stick of white chalk.

All brands? I never ever use those, I always pour on top of my clothes and we've never had marks. We've changed a lot of brands too.

Ha, he can cook but he works noon to midnight 5 days a week.

They were washed and dried the same day. Weird!

Thanks so much for that tip!

It's detergent Try cleaning your machine. Also if you use more the one brand or switch it gets worse. My FLer ruined hundreds of $ in clothes.
