I know what the stain is... cinnamon sugar and butter. Two small spots, but right where they're very noticeable. I've tried Shout, Oxyclean, and Hydrogen Peroxide. Any ideas?
Thanks!

Did you try Mother Murphy?

I have had a little success with the Carbona remover specifically for fat and cooking oil - but butter/oil remains the bane of my clothing's existence. Nothing really seems to work all the time.

Try dissolving some dishwasher detergent in hot water and using that on the food-based stain; perhaps try soaking the piece in it.

This is a solution that's worked for me. Mix Dawn dishwashing detergent with Hydrogen Peroxide, fifty-fifty mix.
Pour on spot, rub in slightly, then let soak for 10 minutes. Rinse, then wash as usual.
I've also mixed Peroxide with Woolite and used that for all kinds of stains. But Dawn does seem to get the butter out better than anything else.
