Mysterious Stains on Laundry

I have spots on clothes. Please can anyone help?

Here is a little background. The last few years I have replaced my soft water unit. I have changed my detergent, from liquid to powder and brand several times. I stopped using fabric softener in both my washer and dryer.


I had maintenance work done and cleaned both units inside and out. Finally I got so frustrated I went out and bought a new traditional washer and dryer, as I thought maybe soap was dripping down some how with my front load washer.

Guess what? I am still getting the spots! I have never used fabric softener in my new washer and dryer. And I have again used both liquid and powder and switched brands. Help!

Could it be that you have mineral deposits in your city water that is leaving stains on your clothes.

What color are these spots?

Grease spots often appear on cotton t-shirts after they are washed. These have been deposited on your shirt when you are eating or cooking, but you don't notice them until you wash the shirt. These can be removed with a product like Shout.


If these are spots where the color is removed, than it could be caused by some product that you are using on your skin. Acne medication will take the color out of clothing along the neckline or where your hands touch, or where perspiration washes it onto. You do not notice this until the garment is washed.
