Do you know what caused the stain? You could try a mixture of laundry detergent and baking soda and rub it in then rinse.

You can soak overnight in 5 gallons of hot water to which you have added 2 T each of hydrogen peroxide and powdered dishwasher detergent. Wash as usual in the morning.

If white cotton, try toothpaste with whitener and a toothbrush. That often works.

Also if you soak in water over night with a tablet of denture cleaner. It is very good at taking out stains (also works well on removing stains in the toilet too)

Since we do not know what type of fabric, what may have caused the stains, where the stains are located, or if shirts have been dried we can only offer the usual solutions so I hope one of the suggestions offered will work for you.
Have you tried placing shirts in sunshine and continuously wetting the yellow spots? Sometimes this is all that is needed but it may take a day or so to remove the stains (leave out overnight in open for dew to keep it damp/wet).

Here is a link to a web site that offers suggestions for all types of fabric:
