My son has a favorite skateboarding shirt that has mildew around the neck and back. After skating he balled up the shirt and never told me. I washed it not knowing it had mildew stains. Is there any way to get these stain out now? He's leaving soon for California and wants to take this shirt. Thanks.

We have had a pair of jeans outside for a while, they have been rained on and everything, now they have mildew on them. I need to know how to get rid of it so that my husband can wear them again.

Well there is an Oxiclean ad and coupon right under your posts that looks like it would do the trick :) (11/27/2009)
I've gotten mildew on a football jersey, and a delicate pastel pink cardigan. How can I get it out without wrecking the fabric?

I had a huge mildew problem on 3 article of clothes. I found a suggestion to boil them in Oxiclean and Clorox 2. I have boiled them for about 2 hours now and 2 out of the three are clean. The other, which was the worst, is just about clean, just one very light patch left. I am so excited, and thank you to the person who left that suggestion. (03/31/2009)

It will more than likely not come out, I'm like a guru at clothes washing (Stay at home Mom)! Of Course if you scrub at a stain long and hard enough, anything will come out a little. But mildew on clothes is a hard thing to get out, it's basically like you dotted your clothes with black dye. Good Luck. I'd suggest throw it away, you will spend as much on cleaner than just buying a new one! (05/03/2007)
Oxyclean does work, I recommend it. (01/15/2008)

I had mildew in a load of clothes that had been washed, but not dried, and had been sitting for a week. I put all purpose Antibacterial Windex in the washer and it removed it from all of the clothing. I then washed the clothes again in Wisk. (07/24/2008)
|I have mildew spots on a pale pink top - I would like to know if there is an effective way of removing this without taking the colour out of the top.|
|I had the same problem when my baby spits up, the laundry may sit for days, then it had started to mold. I have used Oxy Clean, it works wonders. You will need to let it sit, possibly overnight, in an OxyClean mix with water. Then rinse with hot water.|

|Squeeze fresh lemon juice on the fabric and let it dry in the sun. Repeat if necessary.|
