How can I remove stains from my shirt.

My favorite summer shirt has stains in the armpits. The shirt is white and the stains are yellow...Gross, I know. I havent worn it since last year and when I got it out of the closet I noticed the stains! Did anyone have the same problem and be able to get the stains out? What works?

  • Well you can try some bleach for a couple of minutes directly on the stain,, but I never have luck when they are old, worth a shot though! Wash it by itself in hot water,,,good luck!

  • since its white I would spray it with a stain spray let it sit for a while then I would pour a couple cap fulls of bleach directly on it & wash right away with some soapy in hot water & do it again if it didn't come out don't put your shirt in the drier until it comes out this is what I ave to do to some of my DH's shirts.
