-Gwen Whiting

I grabbed it from my friend (name omitted for “pit” anonymity) as it was such a horror I couldn’t let it go back in the drawer as is…

So as I’m washing all my vacation clothes (with some super duper sunscreen and mineral bath stains) I documented the shirt…

Use the Stain Brush to work it in:

I soaked in hot water for less than an hour and send through a regular load of wash.

Then – be amazed – yellow stains are gone!
