|This is the neckline of the chemise. The white shirt looked just the same.|
Now, a couple of words on this saga. Both articles are cotton. Both were destined for the dye pot if they couldn't be cleaned. I used an entire bottle of Carbona on just the white shirt.
Here is my recommendation for getting rid of these stains. First, DO NOT DRY the cloths in the dryer. This will set the stain and you can kiss it goodbye or shove it in the dye pot. Second, try treating the stain with Fels Naptha laundry soap. While this didn't work on these particular stains, I have saved many an article of garb or regular clothing doing this before laundering. Third, a good soak in the Oxy Clean did brighten up the colors, so I would do this first then give the article a good hand scrubbing with laundry detergent or Fels Naptha laundry soap. Lastly, if all else fails, I will try the Carbona Stain Devils that is specific to that stain. For sweat or rust it is #9.
Now I'm off to the store to pick up a few more bottles of Carbona for the chemise and a tunica from GNEW last year.
