"Let's make the uniforms ALL WHITE!" ... said no baseball mom ever. This year my sons All-Star Baseball uniform is 99% white. When I first heard the news I was happy about it, because last year they were mostly all black and it was just way too hot for that. Miserable, in fact. After the joy faded reality set in... and the following thoughts rushed through my head - "Don't they realize how dirty these boys get?!", "OMG they sometimes have THREE GAMES in one day and also they play 4 days of tournament in a row!", "How can I get the grass, dirt and sports drink stains out in less than 12 hours so they're ready to go for the next game?!". Well, we found a way, which was by using OxiClean™ White Revive™ Stain Removerimmediately on the uniform when we got home.
For the baseball uniform the best way we found to remove every.single.stain is by doing the following:
1 // The minute we walk in the door my son takes off his uniform and we march it right down to the laundry room to pre-soak in warm water and one cap full of OxiClean™ White Revive™ Stain Remover. Make sure the powder is completely dissolved and the garment is completely submerged in the solution.
2 // We let it the pre-soak go about an hour or two (depending on how early we have to be up the next day for another round of games) and then toss the uniform in the laundry with our usual detergent and the OxiClean™ White Revive™ Stain Remover filled to line 2.
Tip: If you have a top-loader washing machine like I do make sure you add the detergent/OxiClean™ White Revive™ Stain Remover mix into the machine before adding in your whites.
This product and method is the best way we've found to clean the baseball uniform and remove all of the stains in the first try without worrying about harsh smells or dangerous spills. The method is our quickest, most-effective way to brighten whites and remove stains without chlorine bleach. It's also safe for use on colorfast fabrics.
Parents have even commented they knew which one my son was on the field because his uniform was still so bright white (my mother-in-law can get out any stain and has a rep for it) and my husband and I let them know about the OxiClean™ White Revive™ Stain Remover, which they can do without the help of a MIL.
