    Wow...I thought DH had a problem..his pillow cases are like that. I to have tried everything imaginable to wash them. He made a comment to me one day..why doesn't my pillow smell good like yours? I bought tan and dark brown cases for him. I think today I am going to wash the cases in shampoo..hope it helps. Can I wash his pillow in shampoo too?
    Thank you for the tips. I love QB.
    Peace and Blessings

    Had the stain problem, plus a really bad odor that just didnt come out of the sheets and cases. I use A&H washing soda, that helps a lot. Pillows get tossed frequently! It is such a strange odor, even after washing, if his sheets a stacked next to mine on the shelf, I can detect the odor on mine. It's weird, he is clean and his clothing isn'T like that, . You all refer to the staining, anyone have the stink too?

    I had a friend years ago whose husband was a car mechanic. He got everything very black and greasy. She would use detergent and one can of Coke in the wash and they would come clean. Don't know how it will work on body grease. Have you tried Shout spray or one of the degreaser sprays?

    Wow, just knowing I'm not thr only one is so great. All these years I've blamed the quality of the sheets, my laundry skills etc. Next I'll try the shampoo tip. Over the years I think I've tried every pre-wash on the market.

    Same problem with my DH and his pillow. Also when I started the change, I found my pillow damp alot. I now take a large towel and wrap the pillows after putting on the pillow case. The towels seem to dry better, while absorbing better as well. Haven't seem any of the staining since. Took a bit for him to admit that it was better, but now he won't sleep without it.
