How do you remove Crest Tartar toothpaste stains from clothing? I have tried Shout, Goop, and Dawn to no avail. I also tried plain water before I laundered them, but nothing seems to work. Thanks.

Nobody is replying and this is a simple one! use pure corn starch powder the directions for use is on the box! Buy it in the baking goods. It takes out everything.
Sorry to tell you but Crest Tarter contains phosphate which is a bleaching agent so the fabric color has been lifted out rather than leaving a deposited color stain that would be possible to remove ...
I can't remember if Crest TC was colored, in that case use peroxide, or white, in that case use vinegar. The color is the artificial coloring ingredient, which may be more stubborn, acting as a dye.
Thanks for your suggestions. I think there is a bleaching agent in the toothpaste, although the manufacturere claims there isn't. They told me to use cold water which didn't do anything.
I am sorry the manufacturer fibbed to you, Marie, and indeed they did :-(
I am sincerely sorry I didn't add these links when I originally posted on March 2nd because the links would have confirmed what I wrote and saved you a couple weeks of effort :-(
We have all done it and it is most annoying. While brushing your teeth you notice (or watch it fall) a tiny dot that has dripped onto your shirt. I get frustrated cleaning/wiping and blotting it off due to the fact that toothpaste for some reason is flipping hard to remove. Anyone?
I brush my teeth before I get dressed, for this reason! And, if I come home for lunch and brush them before i go back to work, I sometimes cover up by tucking a towel in. You can blot it off with a washcloth then dry the spot the washcloth leaves with a blow dryer in a pinch.
Warm water and nylon net will get it out.
