What can I do next?

Summary

The best way to remove yellow stains in white shirts maybe is to replace the shirts. The aluminum in the deodorant that causes the yellow stains so the easiest way to stay out of the laundry room is to buy aluminum free deodorant. Some suggest to use Oxyclean to pre treat the shirts before washing.

K., I have heard that Oxyclean is very good, and there is a product of Oxyclean called Zout that is supposed to be very good. Good luck! Please let me know what you discover.

Never buy expensive white shirts and replace them 1-2 times a year. This is the only way I have been able to get rid of those nasty stains.

you can try a white vinegar soak over night. it comes from your deodorant or if you use the nicorette gum to stop smoking. D.

I read all the responses and did not see the home remedy I just found in one of my magazines-- I haven't tried it yet but the advice is to throw TWO ASPIRIN into the laundry with your whites. Sounds interesting, and the magazine swears that it works. Good luck!

You might try "Totally Toddler" spray, I have gotten a lot of stain out with it, it is great. Unfortunately the only place to get it is Babies R Us. Wal-Mart used to sell it, but I haven't seen it there lately.
