Ask the Laundress
I'm a guy, and my dress shirts usually develop yellow collar and cuff stains after a while. What product do I need to use to pretreat the collar and cuff areas in order to prevent/combat these body oil stains?
To treat and prevent the yellowing of the collar and cuff areas on your dress shirts, I recommend using our Wash & Stain Bar. This product is especially designed to clean “ring around the collar” and underarm stains and is extremely easy to use. Just follow the steps below:
Pretreat: Lather the Wash & Stain Bar with warm water and gently work it into the stained area. If the shirt is cotton or linen, you can pour hot water onto the soiled area for extra cleaning power.
Wash: Remove and store your shirts’ collar stays and machine wash using our Signature Detergent. Make sure to select the delicate cycle and cold water setting on your machine.
**For extra protection, we recommend putting your shirts into one of our Mesh Bags when machine washing to protect the garments’ fabric and buttons.
Dry: Do not put your dress shirts into the dryer; rather you should hang to dry.
Below is a link to one of our blog posts that goes into greater detail on how to care for your dress shirts. I hope these tips work for you!
