For for this technique you need to find a fresh lemon or concentrated lemon juice in a bottle.  All you need to do is to press the pulp of half a fresh lemon onto the stain or soak the stain with some concentrated lemon juice.  You can then scrub the stain on itself and then put the garment into the washing machine for about ten minutes.
