    I've used 20 team borax hot hot water. Peroxide I've been told seems to have an effect. Was at the laundry mat yesterday a lady suggested the tablets you clean your dentures in. That kinda makes since.d3

    Something like Spray-n-Wash first, to be sure there are no oils locking in the stain. Soak it for an hour or so before laundering. Then what I've had the best luck with is Oxi-Clean - I've mixed a few scoops of the powder in with hot water (it's hard to get it to all dissolve, just do your best), then soak the items over night before laundering again. I've also had some luck with dabbing straight liquid bleach on things, but it's weird - it's so strong, but just doesn't seem to work on some stains (also it'll remove dyes, so not good for colored items). Good luck!

    Is the white shirt cotton or a poly blend? Sweat is an acid, so it requires an alkaline solution to neutralize. Bluing is a traditional whitening agent. Your dry cleaner has appropriate treatments. If not, it possibly could be dyed. Consider using Primal Pit deodorant in the future. Also, consider not consuming spicy foods that increase body heat, while wearing a white shirt.

    Try soaking overnight in oxyclean. If you have a top loader try that or if a front loader use a bucket
