How to Easily Remove a Shirt Collar Stain

5 Minutes
White shirts always seem to have the yellow and brown collar stain but they can easily be removed with this simple and easy solution.
You will need:
1 part Dish soap
2 parts Hydrogen Peroxide
1 part Baking soda
1 Soft brush
Mix the dish soap, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda together in a bowl. With a soft brush or old toothbrush, apply the solution to the stained collar area. Gently brush area, then let it sit for one hour. Launder as usual. This solution makes enough for 2-3 shirts.
I originally saw this idea from a pin on Pinterest and was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked. In the last photo I have tried to show that this solution worked so well that I could see a line where the solution stopped.
Have you tried this method for removing collar stains?
Mix solution together and brush onto the collar stain and let it sit for one hour
After regular laundering.
Can you see the faint line where the solution stopped?

    Great idea prior to having dress shirts laundered for my husband, who is a minister and has several. Would probably help to include the cuffs of the long sleeves.
