of some bright yellow shorts.

My daughter totally ruined a brand new pair of Gymboree shorts at the soccer field 2 days ago.

I've used short, pretreated and soaked, washed in cold, washed in warm you name it and it's NOT coming out.

Clorox 2 is a good idea. Also, try some WD 40 on it, too. That helps loosen it a bit and break it up in the wash.

I use a nail brush on stains with detergent directly on it. If they are light yellow and ruined anyway, you could try dishwasher detergent, just really rinse them well or you will have a nice hole. lol
