Here is a question submitted by Kelly:
I am having trouble getting clay out of my sons white baseball uniform.
Tools & Technique:
1. Carefully remove whatever you can using a soft scraping tool(spoon).
2. Soak and agitate in water before washing to further remove clay.
3. Use a laundry pre-treat or liquid detergent and rub into stain.
4. Launder as usual.
For tough stains use digestant presoak (don’t use on wool or silk) product for about 30 minutes. Soak old stains for at least several hours.
Launder normally, rinse, and inspect. If stain remains, soak an additional 30 minutes, then rewash. If you are still having trouble try using a laundery booster available at most grocery stores. If the shirt is white you could also try bleaching the stains, by adding blech the the wash water.
Precaution:Always read and follow the care instructions and any warnings on the garment label. Don’t dry the clothes until you have inspected the stain to see if it is gone. Heat sets most stains.
