Alix, I fear the evil laundry witch has hit my house too. I'm so glad you posted this, as I see two things I haven't tried. Early this week, we had 8 pr. shorts all spotted with something, which went through the washer and dryer. (Still haven't found the culprit!) After soaking them in Biz for 2 hours, and re washing, the stains are still there. Ditto with some spray and wash and stain stick.
I'm going to try the goo gone (as I have some) and if that doesn't work, it'll be stain devils for me.

Duct tape is also good for removing scabs.

Alix, SO uses something called ZOUT to get the food stains out of my clothes and there are a lot of them as I usually forget to wear an apron. It's a pretreatment liquid. For tuff stains she has to treatr and wash the item twice but it works.

Alix, I don't know if you can find it in your neck of the woods, but I use "Soilove" Laundry soil-stain remover (for all colorfast washable fabrics). It comes in a lime green plastic bottle. Believe it or not, I found it in a 99 cent store, per a friend's recommendation. (She bought 10 at a time. That must be one dirty family, lol.) I use it sparingly, because I don't know if I'll ever find it again. Note says: Injurious to skin and eyes. Doesn't always work on everything, but better than anything I've tried.

If all else fails...
