Taco meat stain removal

We had tacos the other night & my son was wearing a cream colored shirt & dropped a big clump of seasoned taco meat right on his belly - big old orangy greasy taco stain on his shirt.  I soaked it in Oxyclean - didn't work - sprayed it with Spray & Wash Max with Resolve - washed it - didn't work.  I have not put it in the dryer, so hopefully it's not set.  Does anyone have ANY idea of how to get the stain out?  It does have a khaki green frog on it, and it is cream color, not white, so I'm not sure if I spot treated it with bleach water if it would work.  Any ideas you stain gurus????

You can just bleach the whole thing. It wont turn white. I bleach my daughters cream stuff all the time

Sounds like the grease and seasoning stained it. Treat it like a grease stain.

Personally for grease stains I always put salt on them immediately after the stain happens. I dont know if it would work if you already washed it. But its worth a shot if you hand wash it

It's not a solid colored shirt.  It has a khaki green appliqued frog, trim & writing on it.  Maybe I will try just spot cleaning with bleach water.

Dawn Dish Soap!

It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

I dropped taco meat on my lt blue tshirt. I took a wet wipe (closest thing) and wiped it. I then used spray and wash on it and washed it. It's air drying now. Stain still there. Now what can I do?

Try hand sanitizer it works for alot of stains, or peroxide it works to

I read that cumin stain, which I think is an ingredient in taco seasoning, can best be removed with oil or alcohol. So you could try these. I suspect since it has been washed already that it is set in. :(

Id try dawn dish detergent and a toothbrush, applied from the back of the shirt you mught try baking soda mixed in too.. rinse from the back if the shirt too.. commercial taco mixes in the envelopes like Old El Paso have food coloring when combined with grease stain really well..
