Ok I cheat on this one.  Take the pants to the car wash bays.  Pin them up and let the soap sprayer get it out.  After you spray them down keep them in a bag or put them in a bucket in the car and let them soak as you drive home before you wash them.  You can watch the stains come out right before your eyes.  BEST TRICK EVER.

True dat!

My wife says it does have a smell to it but she is willing to put up with it because it works so well. 

I mix a batch of iron out and put it in the cooler with the pants....the water stays hotter longer and I can leave it outside.  I have also used Fels Naptha which cleans really well and does not have a bad odor.

I use the iron out too.  I have a top load washing machine.  Fill it with hot water, toss in the iron out and some detergent, soak overnight with the top down, spin out in the morning then wash as usual.  Absolutely no work, no smell and it works every time.  Most of the time I wait until there's a weeks worth of practice and game pants too.  I did wonder what it might do to the machine but it seems to be holding up fine.  

Uniforms should never see the inside of a dryer.  Always air dry.  If you still have stains, you can keep working on them as long as you do not set them in the dryer.

 

Fels Naptha works great.  I basically scrub using the material itself - soap up right pants leg and use to scrub left pants leg.  I use lots of water when soaping up and then usually soak in kitchen sink for 1-2 hours - basically rinse in the sink but with the drain closed.  That way the Fels Naptha works it way everywhere.  Then wash and hand to dry.

Fels-Naptha - A parent gave a bar to each parent on the team a few years back. We did the same thing on the next years team and kept the tradition going. Good stuff and cheap. Krogers has it for around a dollar.

Love the idea! 👏

Dude/s, Dudettes....soak the pants in hot water/Iron Out in a 5 gallon bucket and wash normally afterwards. I never scrubbed and the pants were always as white as snow.

Although we haven't had too many at bats, so I haven't had to use the Iron Out yet this stuff "Fels-Naptha" works great!!!! and a scoop of Oxy Clean and his pants still look new.

Our PA/NJ family has always relied on oxyclean and fels naphtha. However, we just got back from Georgia with some filthy red-clay pants - I’m gonna try the Iron Out! Will report back on how it goes...

My wife tried every remedy suggested for getting stains out of white pants, and then some, but found this stuff to work the best:

It's called Slideout, it definitely isn't cheap, but it works 100% of the time.

I see that they have a "Cleat Wash" product as well...have you tried that?
