I have started having white marks/stains on all my dark colored polyester pants and most tops. The marks are all over the clothes; back, sleeves, etc. (not underarm). They look similar to the white stains you see from salt on things during the winter (except they aren't powdery like that) or a little like burns from an iron (although not shiny). I thought they might be from my dryer sheets so I tried using liquid fabric softener tonight, but they were still there after the clothes dried.
It really sounds like fabric softener stains. I had a problem with the fabric softener dispenser on my washing machine. It was clogged up and not working right. It would leave stains like that on my clothes. I followed the manufacturers instructions for taking apart and cleaning the agitator, and it solved the problem. Good luck!
Try using a cup of vinegar in the rinse water. It could be that there is soap left in your clothes and vinegar would solve the problem. Good Luck.
