It can work on anything from yellow underarm marks on white shirts to grease and grime stains. Click here to know even dried blood can be removed from clothing with Fels-Naptha.
Assess the damage
Once the game is over, you’ll want to take a quick look to see what you’ll be dealing with when it comes to cleaning your pants before the next game. Sometimes the uniform may be free of dirt or grass stains, so a standard wash is sufficient. Other times, however, the pants will be a problem.
If your kid spent most of the game sliding into the bases and diving for the ball, the evidence will be all over their pants. They’ve also likely sweated, which can soak into the synthetic fibers of the pants – resulting in a serious odor.

- Treat heavy stains and odors quickly
- For permanent stains, try a long soak
- Machine wash with high-quality sports detergent (best defense against odor)
- It is important to act quickly
- The best thing you can do to keep baseball pants looking “like new” is to act quickly after wearing them. If you let things like dirt, grass, and sweat stay on your pants for too long, they will be much harder to clean later. Don’t make this mistake.
- A good first step is to provide an extra pair of pants for your child to take home from play. So you can wash your trousers immediately, even if a bottle of water or a tap near the field is enough.
Treat heavy stains and odors first
If you were able to treat the pants immediately, removing the stains shouldn’t be too difficult. Here are some simple steps to treat tough stains before washing baseball pants:
- Remove any excess dirt or grass
- Make a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and detergent (WIN Sports Detergent contains peroxide! – so no need to mix)
- Spot treat stained areas by rubbing or spraying the mixture onto them
- Leave to soak for half an hour before rinsing
Try a long soak for permanent stains
Click here to learn that stains on baseball pants can be tough. You might have to toughen up. If your spot treatment mixture doesn’t help, try a long soak in warm water and bleach:
- With warm water fill a tub or bucket
- Add a cap of bleach to the water (careful for safe handling)
- Leave the pants to soak for an hour or more
- Rinse with bleach-free water
This soap is sturdy and practical and works best with room temperature water. The Fels Naptha stick is effective against the most common stains. However, if the stain is intense, the removal process may need to be repeated.
