  • Try oxyclean. If that doesn't work, add white vinegar to your load. One of those should do the trick.

  • If all else fails and the stain does not come out, don't get rid of the item, go to walmart and get fabric dye (on the dark side) to cover the stain up. Works great and you don't loose you favorite piece of clothing.

  • I know you said "without bleaching it", but I would use a bleach pen. You won't be bleaching the entire shirt, just dabbing the bleach pen on the yellow spots. That should get it out. :)

  • Oxiclean usually works for me, but if that doesn't do it I put vinegar in the rinse water and then let the item sit in the sun to dry.
