How can I get tea stain off my husband's good shirt?

My hubbie spilled tea down the front of his grey shirt. If I just put it in the washer will it come out? Should I use something else beside or in addition to Gain laundry detergent? Should I use Shout Spray n' Wash on it and then toss it in the washer? I'm a little worried about scrubbing the area too hard and then having it look scrubbed or having the colour fade.

  • I would soak it first in a solution of water and Oxyclean. I have gotten out some really tough stains with it .

  • I use liquid detergent and get the toughest stains out by pouring it directly on the stain and then laundering. You could make a paste of the powdered detergent and do the same.
