    Cleaning The Inside of Shirt Collars?

    I don't know about you, but the inside of my shirt collars get extremely dirty. Any advice/tips on the best way to clean them?

    I've tried taking them to the cleaners to get laundered, washed at home and used stain stick/shout, etc. and they never come out looking clean. There's always a few streaks left over.

    Thanks!

    Spray Shout Advanced on the collar (I use 10 sprays per shirt), use a stiff brush (I use a suede shoe brush) and brush vigorously, let it sit for 15-30 minutes, then wash in warm water cycle. Hang dry.

    I've tried this and always works. Put a a 3 scoops oxy clean in a bucket and mix it with water enough so that it looks murky. Soak the shirt it for an hour or more depending on the stain. Get rid of the oxy clean solution and launder usually or mix with water and detergent and voila it should be gone.
    Best,
    Paul

    How long are you going between washes?

    Usually after I've worn the shirt twice. Max 3 times.

    Try the oxi-clean method mentioned above. It's worked for me too. Switch to washing after one wear before washes and see if still get the stains you can't get out.

    Thanks! I'll definitely try the Oxi-Clean method. Let's hope this works!
