How To

How-To | Remove Mud & Grass from Uniforms

Jul 24, 2017

With lifeguard whistles replaced by the sound of school bells, summer vacation will soon come to an end, ushering in the new school year. While your kids may not be thrilled for summer to be over, no one can deny the excitement for fall sports – pee-wee, JV, varsity, college, and professional!

From soccer and football to cross country and field hockey, pesky grass and mud stains on jerseys and uniforms are inevitable. Just as these stains are the products of a little good, clean fun, they can be lifted with the application of some good cleaning agents like our Stain Solution. Enzyme-based to fight stains right at their source, it is the ultimate remedy for tough, protein stains like grass.


GATHER THESE TOOLS:

Stain Solution, Stain Brush, All-Purpose Bleach Alternative

STEP 1:

First, apply The Laundress Stain Solution directly to the grass or mud marks. Work the solution into the fabric using our Stain Brush, an old toothbrush, or your finger.

STEP 2:

For added cleaning power, pour boiling water or a stream of hot water from your sink onto the affected area from a height. The heat and the force of the stream together will help to further remove the stain.

STEP 3:

For deeper, more set stains, add a capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to a basin or sink full of warm water and mix. Soak your piece in the mixture for 30 minutes.

STEP 4:

Repeat this process until the stain is fully removed, then launder with The Laundress Sport Detergent. Uniforms are typically made of polyester or high-performance fabrics and Sport Detergent works to protect these fibers. Before laundering, turn garments inside out and place inside a Mesh Washing Bag to preserve buttons, zippers, and other hardware.

STEP 5:

Always air dry uniforms to preserve colors, shape, and elasticity. Simply lay garments flat on a drying rack or towel to dry. You may machine dry on low heat if the countdown to game time is running short! Spray duffle bags, batting gloves, mitts, and cleats between uses with The Laundress Sport Spray. Formulated with anti-bacterial properties, it will freshen items while removing odor.
