Always some yellow or grey stains after wash, what is going on? Does anyone have any tips on how to get shirts clean?

+1 That or some Oxi Clean. Spray it on and rub it in before washing the shirts. You need to pre-treat with something to get those stains out.

What is Shout? I use a product called Zout. It's 100% different and more effective I am sure!

search, there was just a thread about this a few days ago. Try soaking with some diluted vinegar, then apply a stain remover like oxyclean to the spot and let sit, then wash as normal on delicate wash.

Shout on collar and cuff as pretreat, then launder. For deeper periodic cleaning, I use small squirt of Dawn (original blue) and a good 1/2 cup Hydrogen Peroxide in a large bowl of water, soak overnight. Go easy on the Dawn if it's in concentrated form - rinse, rinse, rinse... If there's a stain present that will set with heat, use cold water. Otherwise I'll use as warm of water as I can get away with and for white shirts that need serious attention, water off the boil.

Before you search for a solution(s), may I suggest that you first spend some time understanding the cause of the problem. Once you understand what causes the problem, the solution will be relatively easy. I addressed this issue in a prior thread... http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=253&page=3
