I have a pair of white polyester, rayon and spandex dress pants. They have a set-in mud stain that I cannot get out. I have tried numerous things, but the mud stains will not come out. Unfortunately the pants went through the washer and dryer before realizing the stains where there. Any ideas on how to remove these set-in mud stains?
Hand cleaner at the Dollar store costs one dollar. It comes in a small tub, it's like a jell type thick paste and is clear in color. It's the same thing mechanics use to put on their hands first to loosen grease then wash off. It is the best for the job. Take your item and put some hand cleaner on an old tooth brush and scrub it in good on all fabric fibers and both sides. Let set for about an hour then put it in the wash using warm water. Add some laundry detergent too. Let it agitate in the wash for about 30 minutes then wash load as usual. Add a tablespoon of it to any wash to make clothes brighter.
My daughter's white wedding dress bottom had red clay mud stains set in after 3 washes. Nothing helped. I tried this method I am suggesting now, that someone suggested to me and it worked. If you get a stain on anything, apply it right and wash item. It works. (03/26/2008)
I don't know if this will work on mud, but it does for blood. Wet it really good and scrub with a bar soap. Then rewash it in the washer. This worked for me even after it went through the dryer. (03/27/2008)
I took my son's shirt to the cleaners to see if they could get the mud out of his sport uniform. They could not get it out, so I did what theseamstress (278) suggested and I can't believe it actually worked. Thanks you so much. (09/19/2008)
