I had a bad episode this weekend where every item of clothing on my body ended up soaked in very wet cow manure and mud...don't ask, it's not a nice story. Just picture this slightly plump old woman sprawled out about 20 feet from a fairly busy road yelling her head off and crying loudly. Anyway, I washed everything in very hot water with regular detergent and vinegar and all the mud and stuff came right out.
Iron Out, it is found in the plumbing section of the grocery store. I used it all the time when my son played ball, because we have "red clay" here in Alabama.
You can wet them, then pour detergent on them and scrub with a toothbrush. However my boys told me not to get theirs too clean because it made it look like they didn't get to play much.
How do I remove mud stains from a white tee shirt?

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?
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)
