I like to bust out the ole Gain and throw them in the washer. If that won't do it, try using a cap full of pine sol in with the wash. This should knock it right out.
1/4 - 1/2 cup of white vinegar in the rinse cycle. You can add 6-8 drops of peppermint essential oil to that too.
Perspiration odor can be completely washed out of clothes by adding a cup of baking soda to your laundry. Also, use warm water as opposed to cold and set your washer on the longest cycle or a "soak" cycle if you have it.
If the odor is particularly strong, I suggest rinsing the load twice. The finishing touch (when possible) would be to hang your laundry outdoors.
That load should be totally fresh and clean!!
Baking soda and peroxide will take out most any odors as well as vinegar and lemon juice. Hope this helps!

What is the best way to get yellow sweat stains, specifically, out of clothes?I've got one shirt that is pure cotton and another that is a poly/rayon blend. Both are light-colored and say not to bleach them. Do I dare?
