How do you clean stains on baseball pants

by Brenda
If there are any Little League Moms or Grandmoms out there who have a way of removing the grass and dirt stains from white and or grey pants, I would like to hear from you. I’ve tried everything and have been only semi-successful.

    Make a paste out of an oxygenated cleaner like OxyClean or Awesome Orange and water. Leave on the stain for a couple of hours then run through a wash cycle.

      I‘ve used OxyClean and laundry soap paste but haven’t tried Awesome Orange. Thank you I will try it.

    Try Krudcutter that you can buy at Home Depot! That stuff is magic! It is a safe substance and even can remove dried latex paint! I used to use peroxide to lighten stains before I discovered this. However, I still use it to lighten carpet stain. Don’t do what I did, and decide bleach would work even better on carpet! It doesn’t! 🤪

      Thank you Kathy. I’m off to Home Depot. This sounds great!

    Very similar to the previous comment that I just saw.

    Fels Naptha bar. Wet the pants, then rub with the soap. Let sit for a few hours or overnight, and it will come out Like magic!

      Thanks Roehl. I’ve tried a similar bar soap and not much luck but I think maybe I haven’t let it sit long enough. Whoever thought white pants on a baseball field was a good idea should be shot! :-)

    Directly apply Persil laundry soap to areas with heavy stains, rub in and then soak in very HOT water for a few hours. You may need to do this twice depending how deep the stains are, but after almost 20 years of washing baseball uniforms, I have found this is the best cleaner/stain remover. After soaking wash uniform in warm water with Persil as your detergent.

    I swear by Awesome Orange --- I even use it instead of carpet shampoo in my carpet cleaner. Takes even the most stubborn stains out!

    Fells Naphtha soap. Also soak in borax.
