How to TACKLE STAINS ON A WHITE JERSEY

Recommended Posts

What is the general consensus these days for getting those stains that look like grease out of white jerseys? I've seen a few tips in this thread, however what works best?

Liquid Dawn dish soap. Wet the fabric, rub the soap into the stain either using the material itself or a soft bristled toothbrush. 

Then I wash it in the machine like a normal person, some might say just to rinse it out in cold water. 

This technique works about 85-90% of the time for me.

I use the oxiclean max force gel stick, seems to work every time.

I glob it on, let it sit, work it with an old toothbrush, rinse and repeat if necessary

Worked like a charm.

Do others sometimes use acetone as a stain remover?  Just looking at what Phil was trying to tackle there, I can say I've used acetone on something like that with success.  I agree with both Bob and Fitz method though too.

Using acetone on something like that is a crazy over-reaction. Like exfoliating your face with a power sander. 

But it'll work.

LOL, great anology, I don't make it a habit of using acetone, but I have and it's effective.  On some real dark black marks I've used it and had some success.

I more often than not just treat spots with a stain remover let it sit and then scrub them out with a rag or let them sit in a cold stain remover diluted bath.  I'm one who rarely uses the washing machine on a jersey.  I think I've done it twice or 3 times total.

1) I don’t see why one would use solvents to take out basic stains, and

2) If you wear your jerseys....GROSS!!!!

1) I have no good reason why but I've done it

2) Very very occasional wearer of jerseys - 95% remain unworn in my collection

Ok that’s fine then. No reason to wash them if you aren’t wearing them, and no reason not to wash them if you are.

I usually wash them (sit them in a stain remover diluted bath, rinse and hang to dry) when I first receive them, just to maybe brighten the colours and refresh the fabric anyway.  So they're clean going into the closet and I might pull one or two out to wear in the course of a year so...

I have, when basic stain removal techniques have failed. Acetone worked quite well.

I have never needed / tried acetone. 
My go to is Goof Off and I have used it on some stains when all else fails. 

And I too only have a select few jerseys I wear, the only ones I never wash are the Devils ones I sold back to Fitz. 
But I only wore those a few times with nothing else while laying on a bear skin rug and eating feta cheese by the fist fulls

Once it’s on the internet, there’s no taking it back.
