Buying a shirt that fits your neck properly (slightly loose) will help reduce "ROTC". I prefer Stafford Performance dress shirts at JCPenney. They have use elastic to sew on the top shirt button at collar that helps keep the shirt from being too snug at the neck. Tight collars tend to scrape more oil from your skin the loose collars.

Showering more regularly will actually increase the oil in your skin because showers have a drying effect. When you skin dries, the body produces more oil. The reality is to shower less frequently, particularly only washing your hair every 2 to 3 days.

My dry cleaner recommended Dawn w bleach alternative as a presoak and I have been pleased with results.

Or you could just wash your neck a few times a day; that should work too.

Great article. To prevent shirt grime and ring around the collar from happening in the beginning, try using a cguard from http://thecguard.com
You get to minimize the stain and in 90% of the cases prevent collar grime build up.

You left out a ring around the collar option. My Clean Shirt.
This stuff is awesome. I got a sharpie stain out of one of my husbands dress shirts. As far as ring around the collar nothing gets the stains out better.
You cant find it in stores, but it is available on the internet. I think the website is mycleanshirt.com or just google Mt Clean Shirt

I received a jacket from a friend which is dirty around the collar. I do not want to spend money dry cleaning so can I clean it myself?
