Somehow a wet washcloth made its way into the laundry basket and ds2's cute little Hawaiian shirt has a mildew stain on it I've tried oxyclean and shout advanced and it's still there

I was afraid of that.

Ok, wash it in bio powder hang it on wash line to dry if that doesn't work then soak it in a mild bleach solution, same thing happened to me not long ago with dd's pyjamas and they were covered in mildew and it worked!

Forgot to say the sunlight will kill the mould spores, might take a few goes but it will work you need to do it asap

Seriously it will work if the stain is fairly new. I did it with dd's fave new pj top the same as you, a wet flannel and I'm not kidding you it was covered in the stuff but I tried that and it was as good as new. Let me know if it works
