  • White vinegar is a good bleach alternative for getting out yellow under arm stains.. It might work on those stains as well.
    8oz of white vinegar to 1 gallon of warm water and let soak then rinse in cold water is what i do to get those stains out of my shirts.

  • I found an eco-friendly bleach alternative colled Oxo-brite. It's better than Oxy Clean. You can soak his teeball pants in a solution for up to 6 hours and it will take out just about any stain (except permanent marker). It's usually found in the organic aisle with the organic cleaners.

  • You are going to think I am crazy but for those and grass stains lye soap is the best.

  • Shout spray works GREAT! I used the generics and just do not hold up for me on this one.
