What do you use to remove a set-in stain?

I have a shirt from motherhood that I stained, and I cannot get the stain out! It is brand-new, too! :(

  • I have had really good success with Oxyclean. It's color safe and does not damage fabric, which is a bonus.

  • THis is a cotton shirt that I got from motherhood. It is teal. It was stained when I was eating a sandwich that dripped on me. I washed it, thought I got it out, and dried it. It did not come out, and now it is set-in :(
