Almost sure-fire clothing stain removal: The Two-Step Presoak
If you're like me, you're in full dresser emptying mode, making room for fresh summer clothes. I've come across plenty of outgrown, stained clothing which needs touching up before it gets shipped to Goodwill or the resale shop. I mentioned this hack long ago when writing up how to prepare second-hand clothes for sale, but I thought it was worthy of its own post because it works so well:
Soak the stain in whatever stain remover you like (I like Zout liquid but have used every brand with good results). Let it sit for at least 10-15 minutes. Then soak the item overnight in a bucket of hot water to which you've added some color-safe bleach (I like Biz). Stubborn stains, even those that have survived multiple washings, often come out with this treatment.
