Elizabeth has two shirts that has a big stain on the front. One I haven't put in the dryer and the other one has been in the dryer. What can I do to get the stains out?

I'd try to soak them in cool water and oxyclean and see what happens.

One cup powdered Cascade and one cup powdered CLorox II to 5 gallons of the hottest water you can get out of your faucet. Soak and wash as usual!

Wow! I'll have to try that one some time, Roxanna!

I hope it works for you, Libby!

Thanks everyone! Now I have got to go see my MIL to get some powder Cascade. I know it will work...thanks again.

That poor little girl has got about 5 outfits and almost all of them are stained. Some are not that bad, but like today...I didn't even put the shirt in the dryer because the stain was so bad.
