dh has a white baseball cap that has hairline perspiration stain. Would bleach work? Is there anything else you could suggest? Naturally, this is a favorite cap, so it is of great importance that I do this right!

I've had this problem many times. What ya got to do is scrub it with a stiff brush using detergent and hot water.

manella. Does it get that nasty stain out? DH worked construction for 35 years had to wash his dang hat every week. If only I'd known about the dishwasher method!

This is super stuff! Even removes set-in sunscreen stains on white shirts. Plus it doesn't weaken fabric like bleach does. http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2011/11/goodbye-to-yellow-armpit-stains.html

Thank you for all the tips and suggestions! I think I will give the Dawn-hydrgen peroxide-baking soda trick a try! I'll you know how it comes out!

I asked a while back for stain help. I tried different suggestions on different, some unknown, stains. I tried the combo of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and it was better then I added the dawn dish soap and worked it in with an old toothbrush and that did the trick. Try OXY soak. I made a paste and scrubbed it in then soaked in an OXY solution. Using these got our unknown orange drips and residue and underarm yellow stains.

What about funky "oil" spots on tee shirts? I have a favorite pink tee from Macy's I'll need to wear as a "uniform" at a convention next month, but there's a baseball sized oily looking stain on it. I tried Oxyclean in the wash, and I've also soaked the spot with Dawn, to no avail. I hate to toss it, but the stain is located in an embarrassing spot, and I know I didn't spill anything. Any ideas?

Blue dawn, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Works great but you'll need to scrub with it. Takes out old stains too.
