It says not to put oily clothes in as a safety precaution because oil never really comes competely out and it could become a fire hazard...the oil could also transfer to future loads.. My dad is a mechanic and he sends his clothes out to be washed by a specialty company...my mom would kill him if he stuck his stuff in the washer
