  • I never had luck getting mildew out of a shirt. Bleach may work, or peroxide.... soak it for a while, then scrub at it with a soapy stiff brush (like old toothbrush).

  • Old wives tale says rub it with a mild bar of soap until you see a film, set it in the sun for several hours, then rinse in cold water.

  • Personally I would introduce the shirt to the trash can!
