Yeah, I'll admit it. I'm a soccer mom. And no, I don't have a sticker on the back of my minivan identifying me as such. Maybe that makes me an anonymous soccer mom, or perhaps just incognito.
Answer me this. Who's the genius that came up with white soccer uniforms? Definitely not the parent doing the laundry. In our community league, we play on a combination baseball/soccer field. The base paths are that red dirt that looks like rust, and are definitely still in play. Invariably, with kids being kids, the base paths see the most action. What little boy doesn't love to slide in the dirt? After the game, their white soccer shorts and shirt look like they've been dipped in rust. And those long white soccer socks that cover up the shin pads? Forget about it! But how do you remove rust stains from clothing?
Earlier in the summer, though it seems like years ago, I learned that the rust removal product, Super Iron Out
, removes rust from most everything, including toilets, concrete and clothing. But would it work on a soccer uniform? Game on.
I just added a half cup of SIO to the warm water while the washer was filling. I tossed in those rust stained soccer clothes, and any other whites in the hamper and let soak for five minutes. I then just resumed the regular wash/rinse cycle. It was that easy!
When the clothes came out, they were clean. The rust stains were gone. The white team is ready to do battle yet again. For soccer moms everywhere, score a penalty kick against red dirt and rust stains with the best rust remover on the market today, Super Iron Out.
