You could try an overnight soaking in a solution of powder dish washer detergent and water, about 1/2 cup to a bucket of water. This takes out a lot of stains for me. (05/23/2007)
If they are white I often take a Q-tip, dip it in bleach and just dab it on the individual stains. Then wash immediately.
I also have gotten in the habit of checking and using Stain-stick around cuffs and collars each time I wash them. It seems to be the best fresh stain remover on the market. (05/23/2007)
The dollar stores have some good fabric cleaners. You might try their LA's Totally Awesome Pre-Wash Stain Remover, 32 oz. spray bottle. Synthetic fibers are always tough to get stains out of. (05/25/2007)
Before he retired, I found that putting "GOJO" (or some other mechanics hand cleaner) on stains and let set for a while, then wash as usual,stains would wash out. (05/25/2007)
If white cloth, use Creme Perioxide for several hours or overnight JUST ON THE STAINS, then when removed, wash really well with warm soap/water.
If colored, I'd try WD 40 and then wash out with straight Ultra Dawn directly to the spots.
Good luck and God bless you. : ) (05/27/2007)
