How to Get Red Dirt Out of Baseball Pants 

Vinegar and Dish Soap Solution 

Mis equal parts of white vinegar and dish soap in a bowl. Apply this solution directly onto the stain. Gently rub the solution onto the dirt marks using a soft brush or a sponge, and work that solution gently into the fabric. Allow the solution to sit for 15 minutes or so, and rinse the solution under cold water and all the loosened dirt as well. Then wash as directed or as you normally would. 

Oxygen Bleach 

Oxygen bleach is a really great and effective option to remove the stubborn red dirt on your baseball pants. All you must do is put the oxygen bleach in a bucket filled with water and then submerge that part of the pant where the stain is present. Leave this for a couple of hours or even overnight if you’d prefer. Then all you have to do is wash this under cold water to remove all the bleach from the fabric and then you wash it in cold water with some laundry detergent. 

Lemon Juice and Salt 

A pretty neat method of removing red clay from baseball pants. All you have to do is take a lemon and squeeze its juice onto the specific area where the stain is preset. Then add a generous amount of salt and rub it in, the acidity of the lemon juice and the scrubbing effect of the salt act to remove the stain completely. After this wash it with cold water to remove all the lemon juice and salt and wash it with laundry detergent just like how you normally would. 

Commercial Stain Removers

Another method is to just go directly for the stain remover. They are not that pricey and you can get really good ones, for a good amount of price as well. They will work like a charm and remove those stains in no time. Once you buy them all you have to do is read the instruction at the back of the bottle and follow as directed. Apply the commercial stain remover on the stain and let it sit for the recommended time as suggested in their instruction. Rinse off the excess stain remove and be sure to wash it under cold water. Then wash it as you normally would with some laundry detergent.

Handling your pants with extreme care is a must because this might cause them to wear out in terms of quality. Follow the care label and its instructions, and take care of your pants likewise. Pre-treat stains and try to avoid strong bleaches as much as possible. Washin cold water and try to use a gentle cycle as much as possible when washing them.
