Works for Me: Getting baseball pants clean-and other whites!

Ok, as you can guess by my blog title and the picture of my boys we are a big baseball family! I am always washing their baseball pants and of course their coaches had to choose WHITE!!! Hello, do they not think about the nasty red clay/dirt/dust that we have here in the South!!!

Anyway- I have tried many many different sprays and still have stains. I've tried scrubbing them with Ivory soap before washing them. Same results. I have finally found something that works great. I add a scoop of Oxiclean Versatile!
It works wonders. I put it in my front load washer (right in the washer with the clothes) and my normal amount of detergent and wash in hot water. Amazing how white the clothes are!!! It's great!

I need to try that stuff. So many rave about it and boy do my kids generate the stains.

Thanks for stopping by and the kind comments. :)

Does this work on colors too? Or does it bleach things? I've had lots of folks suggest Oxyclean, but you're the first to say OC Versatile (I don't think I even knew that existed). I'm not into the baseball years yet, but the stained bib and onesie 9 months have taken a toll on the stain cleaning budget!

I have been around baseball my whole life and have been blessed with 4 boys that ALL love baseball. I swear the clay has changed because it got sooooo hard to get the stains out of those white pants. Well, my boys now have the whitest pants on the field due to a great stain removing tip. Murphy's Oil Soap!!! The stains come right out. I don't cringe everytime they slide anymore!

My son plays travel baseball and keeping his uniform clean was chor.I tried oxi clean,bleach,shout, ect. nothing would take out all of the stains. I came across the espro sports cleaner a few weeks ago when I was searching the web for advise on getting out the stains.The first time I used it was on a pair of pants that were covered in red MUD-the game was called due to rain. I sprayed it on the old and new stains and was amazed that you could see some spots actualy turning WHITE. I let them sit for 20 min.I sprayed the old stains once more then washed as normal(just tide nothing extra) and when they come out they were completly WHITE!!!! I was so happy to find something that worked with little effort. It also has odor guard that I sprayed in his shoes and catchers gear and it keeps everything smelling fresh! This product realy does work. I stated using it on ALL my laundry.My 2 year old had a red juice stain that covered the front of a shirt and it took all of the stain out! I think this stuff is GREAT! You can find it on
