Shirts are a staple item of our wardrobe – from crisp white numbers to lively pops of colour; they get us through the week. Because we rely on wearing our shirts so often, they can often be prone to lunchtime or coffee spillages, resulting in unwanted coffee stains and dirty marks.

Then there are the treasured formal dress shirts that only come out of the wardrobe a few times a year – yet we still manage to arrive home from an event with an irritating red wine stain!

Luckily, Vanish makes removing stains from shirts easy. Choose between three simple steps: pre-treating, soaking, or washing in the machine. Our powerful Oxi Advance formula, which is available in gel and powder form, takes the stress out of tackling even the toughest of stains.

Read on for top tips on how to get the best results with Vanish when dealing with those unsightly marks.

How to remove stains from coloured shirts

To remove stains from coloured shirts, use our fast acting Vanish Oxi Advance Multi Power Powder or Vanish Oxi Advance Multi Power Gel for amazing stain removal. For best results on very tough stains, choose from the steps below (pre-treat, soak or wash). Or for light staining, simply start from Step 3 (a soak, then wash).
