Bloodstains is very difficult to remove, but not impossible. However, it is important that to wash clothes as soon as possible after the formation of stains because we have a bigger chance that to remove the blood stains. Generally it is better to use cold water for the removal of protein stains such as blood(or any other body fluid) because hot water can make stain removal more difficult. Ideally, you should not let the stain dry and you need to soak the cloth on the opposite side from the side on which the stain is, otherwise the stain could only suppress deeper into the fabric. The fabric should be rinse until the stain is completely out. If that does not work try hydrogen peroxide. Before using peroxide first try on a small part of the garment if it destroys the color so you avoid to completely destroying a piece of clothing. When foaming stopped rinse the fabric in cold water and, if necessary, repeat the procedure.
Grass stains is actually very easy to remove. Use a sponge or paper towel to rub the stain with alcohol (isopropyl). It is also very important to test the alcohol on a small part of the garment because alcohol can damage the paint. After you wipe the most of the stain with paper or sponge treat the stain with an ordinary laundry detergent. Rub the setergent with fingers into the stain and then rinse the fabric.

Bleach with oxygen needs more time to take effect so you may need to soak the clothes overnight, and perhaps repeat the whole procedure. In order to accelerate the procedure we can combine bleach with warm water and be sure to rinse the fabric well because if the bleach dries on the fabric it will cause a new stain.
Stains on T-shirts emerged from sweat and antiperspirant make an ideal waterproof mixture which collors white cotton in yellow and creates encrusted fabric. Take a few aspirins, crush them and add as much water as needed to form a slurry which then should be applied on the stain. Leave cloth to stand for a whil, and then wash the clothing as usual. Be sure to avoid using bleach on white shirts because the result can be worse than the current situation. In addition, before washing turn shirts to the opposite side, so it will be easier to wash the traces of deodorant.
