Kids into team sports this year? All those "sweaty" uniforms and socks making you wish you had a clothespin for your nose? How will you ever get them fresh again using the bargain brand detergent?
Just add a half cup of white vinegar to your wash and all the odors will be gone and it will give your washer a thorough cleaning of any built up mineral deposits at the same time.

My husband coaches a basketball team that recently received new uniforms. The colors are red and white. How do I launder them so that the red does not bleed and fade onto the white trim?

i would try soaking them in white vinegar and then wash as usual. do not let them sit in the washer as they will bleed if left there for too long after they have finished washing. then dry as usual....i have even heard if one uses salt as a pre-soak for bleeding.
I wash all new clothing in salt. Just fill the washer with as much water needed to cover the clothes. If you are doing a washer full, I'd pour in an entire rounded container of salt. Don't need to let it soak, but don't wash with anything added to the water but the salt. After the entire wash, etc cycle is finished, I wash the items in regular detergent. Always use cold water only. This will also help keep the colors from fading. Hope this works for you - it always does for me.
How do you get sand stains out of soccer uniforms?

When my kids were in young sports (they are engaged adults now) we were exposed to baseball, soccer,football pants, and of course they all were white. A former football player gave me a tip and it really worked..bar Dial soap.
