Sometimes laundry pre-treaters just do not remove all the stains on my husband's shirt collars. To remove ring-around-the-collar stains on dress shirts or polo/golf shirts, scrub a dab of shampoo into each stain with an old toothbrush before you run your laundry. Shampoo is made to break up oil, dirt and sweat produced by our body, so shampoo works so well. You may never see another collar stain again!

Doesn't the toothbrush break down the fabric and make little balls form on the shirt collar?
This is a really good idea that I use on a regular basis. I buy a light color of cheap shampoo at the dollar store and it works just as well as the more expensive kind. Be careful about using dark colored shampoo as it may leave color on white or light colored collars. Thanks for sharing.
