My daughter got a big (and i mean big) mustard stain on her favorite kitty princess t-shirt, and i didn't notice that it did not come out until after i dried it. I need to know if there is anything that i can use to remove this. The kitty seems to be an iron on, so i need something that will not harm that. My daughter and I thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Try Zout. It's in your supermarket in a blue bottle over by the pre-washes. I've been using it since it first came out back in the 80s and I swear by it. It's even gotten stains out that have been through the dryer several times! And it has never harmed any of my clothing. If Zout can't get it out, you can forget it - it won't come out. (06/02/2006)

I use glycerine, found in any pharmacy. A small bottle cost me about $2 and it really works on mustard stains. I was shocked. One pretreat and wash is all it took. Sandy/Pittsburgh (06/02/2006)

Tide has a product out I purchased two years ago, and it is fantastic. It's call Buzz. It's a little machine by which you take anything out of anything even old stains get lost. (06/03/2006)

RE: Mustard Stains on Clothing

Use an oxygen cleaner like oxyclean. Soak the stained piece of clothing in the recommended concentration of the cleaner and water. If your washing machine has a soak cycle it helps to use it. While the article is soaking turn off the washing machine and allow it to soak as long as it takes to clean the article of the stain. (01/13/2007)

Carbona makes a line of special stain removers you can find in Shoprite supermarket. I would try it first. Whatever you use. Use it in cold water and do not put item in dryer until you are certain it is out. Heat sets the stain. (08/06/2009)
