Try a specialist cleaners, now, rather than after something you've tried "sets" the stain !
As it is white you can try lighter fluid or cleaning benzine - but please only on cotton never on syntethic fabrics or mixes.Put some soaking paper, like toilet paper under the stain and slowly add the lighter fluid onto the stain.If it works you will see it fading quite quickly.In case it does not my last resort would be acetone - again only on cotton.
Try dish washing detergent (the kind made for washing by hand) DAWN is good.
Put it full strength on the stain. Rub the detergent/stain area with the back of a spoon or other smooth object to work the detergent into the fibers. Wash the shirt again with a load of laundry and add a cup of ammonia to the wash water.
I'm assuming the shirt is cotton or a cotton polyester blend. If it's something else, it may make a difference.
