How do I get deodorant stains out of dark colored shirts?

I can't seem to get the deodorant stains out of my dark colored shirts. I sprayed them with oxy clean and let them set for awhile before i washed them.

  • Take a scrumb brush and a 75% water 25% Mr clean muli surface cleaner. Slowly loosen it up and work it out. I have to do it for DH's shirts. It cakes on and fuses with the fabric. Then try soaking in boiling water and soap to pretreat. I know it's a lot of work but it saved tons of shirts for us.

  • Oxy Clean is crap. Switch to clear deodorant, or try using stain stick on your shirts.

  • BABY WIPES. i have used a baby wipe to get BBQ sauce out of my cream colored carpet. I have no idea WHY they are so good, but they ARE. Doesnt matter what brand, just not a generic one. Get a Huggies or Pampers wipe and it will get the stain right out!
