Whisk made themselves famous with the Ring Around the Collar commercials in the 60s. Try Whisk.

Mom had a bar of that, I used it when I was living at home and I've seen it off and on in hardware stores and such. So, I at least know what it is!

I've seen fels naphtha in several grocery stores. Never used it tho. I did find a bar soap in Mexico once that is used to get stains out of the white cottons that are so common there. I have been hoarding that one lonely bar for about twenty years reserving it only for really tough stains.
OMG! Twenty years????!!!!! :-/

babetoo, you're not old. I had Katie H ship me some Fels Naptha. I admit, it works GREAT. I still prefer OxiClean for stain removal though.

In all the truth the new washers with steam option should be able to lift that stain.

Meat tenderizer also works very well to get out sweat stains/blood, etc. Pour a few tablespoons into the washer, fill up to a small load, let it agitate with the laundry for a few minutes, then stop it and let it soak overnight. The next day, add your detergent and wash as normal. Repeat if necessary with old stains. It breaks down protein. That's how it tenderizes meat, that's how it gets out protein-based stains. Oxy-clean works well too, but like CharlieD said, this is a cooking forum.

I wonder if you could use other things that work as natural meat tenderizers. Pineapple? Kiwi? I suppose then you'd have to get out the kiwi stain...

I have a bar, pre-Oxyclean, that I got at the grocers. Forgot all about it.
