How do you get spaghetti stains out of a white Polo shirt?
By DK Grammy
I cover the stain in Palmolive dishwashing liquid, let set for about 10 minutes, then launder in hot water. It takes it right out.
I would use a stain remover, whatever you usually use. Dawn dishwashing soap, Shout, whatever, and if there is anything remaining, I would use a chlorine bleach. It is a white shirt, it should be fine to use bleach.
There are cotton clothes that specify not to use chlorine bleach, so read the label first
I have spaghetti stains on my work shirts. I'm not sure, but that is what the colour of the stain looks like. Without knowing that they were on there, I washed my clothes. Now that they are dry, I find the stains! Anyway of removing them now? I have tried re-soaking then re-washing, but no luck :(
Might try a soaking in oxyclean or using a stain remover stick. It may just be one of those stains that doesn't go away.
Soak in hot water with 2T each hydrogen peroxide and powdered dishwasher detergent. Let sit a few hours. Wash as usual

I always use Palmolive Dish Soap and the hottest water you can use for the fabric for any "food stains."
After many attempts to remove tomato sauce stain from a white shirt, with Oxy Clean, bleach, Clorox2, Spray & Wash stick stain was still visible. The following day, I finally got it out after using the liquid dishwasher detergent with an ice cube, then blotting it with vinigar to get the stain out!! : ) My last attempt would have been to soak it with lemon juice put it in the sunlight.
How do I get spaghetti sauce out of clothing?
I apply Dawn and a little water and let in soak in, even overnight. Don't rub; that will just work the stain in deeper. Then I wash as usually, but watch the rinse as Dawn makes gobs of suds.

Spot Shot the carpet cleaner, blue can with orange lid. I find it works pretty good for a lot of really odd stains. Try the Queen of Clean website, google her name, she is from Arizona and has some really good tips. She is the one that I got the Spot shot info from. Greased Lightening works good too, it's a cleaner, but can use on clothes. My Mom is a chef and swears by it.
I got some spaghetti sauce on a blouse of mine. I tried everything like alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, awesome, and you could still see the stain. I tried Dawn dish washing liquid on it and the stain came right out. (10/17/2006)

Tried shout, hydrogen peroxide, grease lightning, but nothing worked. Couple of drops of Clorox cleaner with bleach, and I have my white blouse back again. (04/21/2007)
