Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money on ring around the collar.

 

- Use a toothbrush to rub the cleaning solution into the stain.  Don't rub another piece of the fabric against it to scrub it.  This may only spread the stain.
 
- For a quick cleaning, use a paste made from your dishwashing detergent.  Let set 20 minutes, and then wash.
 
- Use shampoo as above.
