Because of the heat, my daughter's team wore white uniform shirts at the
16U Nationals (as long as we were still in it).  Now, most of the
team moms are trying to find some way to get rid of the red dirt stains, which
seem to resist everything.  We have not tried regular bleach yet, since that
would bleach out the team logo and numbers.  

Any helpful hints from those of you who play in the South all the time?

We've got a girl who's mom uses carpet cleaner mixed with the laundry detergent.  Seems
to work pretty well without damage.

See ya,

IRON OUT is a product that will get it all out.  You can get it at Walmart
or some grocery stores.  Soak uniforms 30 min or over night.  It is not in
the detergent section of Walmart...probably automotive or ask, but be
persistent.

RIT rust remover!

Living in Atlanta, we deal with red clay daily.  This is the best stuff
I've ever seen for getting the red stuff out of uniforms.
