I have the exact solution you are looking for.

Lay the garment down on a flat surface, gently stretch it until the stained area is easily visible.

Get a pair of sharp scissors and cut the stained section of material away - being careful to avoid contaminating other parts of the garment (don't want to completely ruin it!!!

Wash and hang to dry as normal - you will note that there is no longer a stain in the affected area....





No need to thank me!!

Well you've made Andy a happy man, along with any other bloke you meet whilst wearing it Have you tried one of the stain remover bottles that does different stains depending on what caused it?

I still say removing the stained areas with scissors is the only way to ensure that the stain is 100% removed!!!

Try putting a little washing up liquid on it. Make sure you DONT use the green type (it can stain if it drys) use a yellow colour. Leave it for a while but don't let it dry and then wash in your machine as usual.

It's always worked for me.
