I use Oxy Clean also. I dampen the shirt collar and pour the Oxy Clean on the neck - sometimes using a brush. Also, I insist DH never wear the shirt but once before laundering.

All I can think of is that silly old ring-around-the-collar commercial. I don't remember the name of the product.

Are you sure you're not talking about lipstick stains?

Calgon. "Ancient Chinese secret huh???"

And here's another vote for oxiclean. I like the stick, but the powder made into a paste works too.

Oxyclean powder in a small container mixed with water, soak just the collar area overnight or longer, then launder. Works for pit stains too!

Wasn't that commercial for a product called "Whisk" or was it for Woolite?

Also be careful how long you soak something that isn't white in OxyClean. I had a bad experience when soaking for two days, not only did the wine stain come out, but the color came out of the garment :(

There's a spray called Wineaway that's great for wine stains.

Just throw the shirt into a pot with cold water, put it on the stove add some soap and some bleach, bring it to the boil and boil for few minutes.

You see, folks, this is after all cooking forum, not laundry forum, it must have been cooking related if somebody is asking a question, so we have to make sure to make cooking related answer.
But in all the truth the above method will lift any stain. Guaranteed.

P.S. Use wooden spoon to stear it.

The best solution, move to California, where business casual means you have to wear shoes, and business professional means you have to wear shoes, and socks.
