    Am about to toss this set of pillowcases out. Figured I'd try using coke to launder them one last time ( may have gotten this tip here). May have brightened them just a tad. My DH pillow is always stainded. I guess it oils from his hair. He showers nightly & it still happens, so I regurally toss my pillow cases.

    Ivory Snow takes out oil from pillowcases very well.

    Hey, I have a hubby that does the same thing. I am so afraid that I will get his pillow case I put a safety pin on his . LOL. Don't want his yucky case. He showers everynight & still his case looks terrible. My favorite color is black, so guess what color our sheets are? Black!!!!! I found this lavender spray at Dollar Tree. Soak his case every morn. Helps. Been dealing with this for 49 yrs. LOL.

    My DH also has very oily skin. He wears nothing but white shirts and gets ring around the collar something fierce. I tried all kinds of detergents. Nothing gets it out. So I tried shampoo. You got it. Works like a charm. Figured it was body oil, and shampoo was designed to clean body oil, soooo...now he has pretty white collars again.

    The Shampoo idea sounds great, I am going to have to try it on collars too!! They are a constant battle!
