Removing Mashed Banana Stains

Q: Help! My 9-month-old mashed some banana into a new outfit (100% cotton) and it left an orange-brown stain. I had soaked it with Oxyclean, scrubbed it by hand, and washed it in Dreft. The stain remains. Any solutions other than bleach?

A: Gold Dial Soap works wonders on lots of stains. Wet the garment, rub the bar of soap on it and if you can use a bit of bleach also, even better.
