Baseball Season - Grass Stains

Baseball season is here - and my first one at that! I am looking for any tips and tricks to keep my son's baseball pants as white as possible. What ideas do you have to get out grass/mud stains as well as the food stains he gets on them when he eats after the game? (Not a clean eater....)

I have used oxi-clean for grass stains and that works well.... at least on the knees of my dd jeans.

I have a friend with two sons in baseball and they get dirty..I will ask her what she does to keep their clothes so Bright and Clean.

As soon as my son came home, I poured liquid Whisk on the stains. I would fold them and put them in the laundry hamper till laundry day. The Whisk can sit on them for a few hours or several days. It is also great on the red dirt that is between the bases. It kept his white pants white and they did not yellow.

Try "Fels-Naptha" soap. I have not seen it in stores but you can get it online at Vermont Country I know this works great for grass stains on uniforms because I have used it for just that. My son plays soccer and grass stains are always a problem.

Grass Stains

I used Simple Green on my sons' baseball and football pants for seven years and worked every time. Just this past season I began using Oxi-Clean in the wash. Worked very well. My girlfirends also used Cascade dishwasher liquid. Hope this helps.

I'm a little late jumping in on this one but maybe I can still help. My youngest son plays ball. The season is just getting underway here.

What I have always done is to set the washer on the lowest water setting. Let the washer fill up, add the normal amount of laundry detergent for such a small load, then also add Cascade dishwasher powder...the amount you would use for a load of dishes. Let the washer agitate a bit to mix the soap & Cascade into the water. Add the baseball uniform. Let it agitate for about 10 minutes. Turn your wahser off and let the clothes soak for as long as possible.........preferably overnight. Let the washer finish the cycle the next morning.

This has always worked for me. No stains (grass or otherwise) what-so-ever in my son's ball uniform!
