How do I remove mud stains out of a white football jersey?

The jersey has red and black trim and numbers on it. I know I can't use bleach. I've been soaking it in cold water with Dawn and Krud Kutter. Help me please!

    Oxyclean does a great job. It does not harm colors but will brighten white and will get many stains out. You might want to start with a preteatment , rinse then wash (soak) in Oxyclean. I have used it on whites and they come out great. : )

    If that doesn't work, try using 20 Mule Team Borax. I have switched to that instead of bleach for my whites. It does a much better job.

    Oxi Clean is great for most stains. It always works for me.

    spray it with spray and wash any brand of it and use a bar of Felznaptha. Wet the bar and material and rub on the grass stains then use a brush like one for your nails and brush the stain. it will start to disappear ...its a little labor intensive but works great to get stains out of anything....two boys and years of fottball baseball soccer etc ive found this is what works best on most all stains....felznaptha is a bar of soap in the laundry area...old school but works the best

    My sister-in-law takes my niece's white uniform to the car wash. She swears it is the only way to get the mud out.

    Oxi Clean would be my first choice, second choice would be a 50/50 mix of Dawn and Hydrogen Peroxide. Rub the mix on, let it set for about 10 min and then run thru wash cycle. Good luck.

    Good old Ivory bar works wonders for stubborn stains. Gentle too! Gently scrub with an old toothbrush or rub the fabric together and rinse well.

    Try Oxy-clean spary for stains. You can buy it at Wal-Mart. I would spary the garment havey with the Oxo-Clean and put in a zip-lock bag and let it set over night. It works for me on hard stains.
