I may have gotten some PI oil on my shoes and clothing. Will putting them out in the sun help break down the PI oil and make them safe to touch, or should I wash them instead? I'm not sure I want to put the clothing in the washing machine if there's a chance that the PI oil could contaminate it.

Also, is regular soap and water sufficient to clean PI oils off or should I buy a special cleaner? Also, does hot water work better for cleaning PI from clothing than cold water?
