Simply use denatured alcohol or methylated spirit (this is solution composed of 95% ethyl and 5% methyl alcohol). Now just rub the stain with a rag of cloth dipping it into this alcohol before you put these clothes for wash.

Another tough stain very difficult to be removed as usually even after washing with very strong detergent the stain is somehow left. It will become very light but yet could be seen. For removing blood stain completely off your clothes use hydrogen peroxide, but don’t forget to check it on any covered part of the shirt like back of collar so that you may be sure that this is not going to hurt your fabric especially if it’s colored.
How To Remove Chewing Gum Stains
Chewing gum usually does not have a stain instead it remain stick itself to the fabric, easiest way to remove it off is that keep the cloth if small piece into freezer overnight.
