Laundry stain removal. Can't get a stain out. What works?

Spilled some "Frank's Red Hot Sauce" on a striped 100% cotton shirt. Tried the following stain removers but the stain remains:
2. Fels Naptha
3. Shout Advanced
4. Unbelievable Pro
5. Spray N Wash Stick
I even tried a carpet stain remover! Yes, I know I spent more on stain removers than the shirt is worth--I could have just bought a new shirt and moved on with my life. But I'm stubborn and want this stain out just so I can say I conquered!
I have not dried the shirt between washings so the stain shouldn't be set in but it just won't come out. I can't use a chlorox stain pen because the shirt isn't all white.
This isn't life or death but just wondering if you all know of something that might work or have an unusual solution you found to work on stains. (For example, I found that Easy Off oven cleaner Fume Free (with the blue cap) will work better on shower/tub grime and buildup than anything made or marketed for shower buildup.) In that same vein, I was wondering if there might be some unusual method for getting stains out of cotton. What are your secrets/advice/success stories?
