Those turf stains are super difficult to remove and I get it! Removing those can really work a sweat and separately, can be a game altogether.

Well, do not worry because I have gathered some of the perfect methods to remove the turf stains on baseball pants. 

Let’s jump straight into it!

How To Get Turf Stains Out of Baseball Pants 

Baking Soda and Vinegar 

Make a baking soda and vinegar paste. Make this until it has a sort of thick consistency. Once you’ve made this paste, apply the paste for about 15 minutes and then you wash it under cold water and then wash it like you normally would. 

Hydrogen Peroxide 

Hydrogen peroxide is a great stain remover. Check the care label of the pants to ensure they are color safe with hydrogen peroxide. Pour a small amount of the hydrogen peroxide on the stains and gently rub it either with a sponge or a toothbrush, let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse the pants with cold water. Wash the pants as usual. 

Lemon Juice 

This is a very budget-friendly option, just like the baking soda and vinegar paste. All you have to do is squeeze the lemon juice on the stain and then rub it gently with either a sponge or brush. Then let it sit for a few minutes, to allow the acidity of the lemon juice to break down the stain. Rinse the pants in cold and then wash them regularly as you would. This method is effective if you don’t wanna invest in those expensive stain removers that will cause a fortune. 

Enzyme Based Stain Remover 

Enzyme-based stain removers come in a little cheap nowadays. And if you are a broke college student looking for a great option then this is the one that you should definitely invest in. They are absolutely perfect to remove the stains quickly and effectively. Follow the product instructions for application and allow it to penetrate the stain for a particular amount of time. Rinse the pant under cold water or how it is instructed and then wash them normally as you would. I’d recommend the Probiotic Enzyme Cleaner for people looking for something cheap and within their budget. 

Oxygen Bleach 

Oxygen bleach is a much more color-safe option than, chlorine bleach and can be super effective in terms of removing stains. Dilute the oxygen bleach according to the instructions mentioned at the back of the bottle. Apply the solution directly on the stain and gently rub it in. Let it sit for the recommended amount of time then rinse the pants and wash them like how you would normally do.

Dish Soap And Ammonia 

Mix equal parts of dish soap and ammonia. When handling ammonia be sure to be careful that it doesn’t come in direct contact with your eyes or any other sensitive areas. Mix the two in equal parts. Apply the solution on the stains and gently rub it in either with a brush or a sponge, let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse the pants with cold water. Then you wash the pants under cold water as you would. 

Rubbing Alcohol 

Rubbing alcohol may work to some extent in terms of removing the stain as much as it can. Dampen a clean cloth with rubbing alcohol. Gently blot the stain with a cloth, being careful not to rub it too vigorously. Continue blotting until the stain itself starts to lift. Rinse the pants under cold water and then wash them like how you would normally.
