We realize our Babe Ruth moms have fun experiencing each new season and watching their child grow both as a player and as a person. Every season is different, but regardless of the wins, losses, and practices, one thing remains consistent – the season is not only full of sights, sounds and smells; it is full of stains. There is always a load of stained laundry waiting for you at the end of the week. We realize your children’s uniforms end up covered with stains of all kinds – grass on the knees, baseball clay on the pants legs, and food stains from postgame snacks. You probably spend just as much time in the laundry room as you do cheering for your child.
Well we have your solution. OxiClean®, the Official Stain Remover of Babe Ruth League, Inc., is an incredible oxygen-based stain fighter that’s chlorine free and color safe. OxiClean® is designed for maximum strength stain removal, in your laundry and around your home. The unique formula is activated by water, unleashing bubbling oxygen power for safe, effective cleaning. It boosts your laundry water pH to improve your detergent’s cleaning ability, and its special ingredients are designed to help rinse soils away.
With OxiClean®, you no longer have to cringe during a game watching that uniform get dirty. By using OxiClean® and following these tips, you can keep that uniform looking like new for longer:
Fit presoaking into the game plan. Get in the habit of immediately soaking soiled uniforms. Presoaking is just as important as washing when it comes to preserving the quality of uniforms beyond one season. Babe Ruth League recommends soaking baseball uniforms in OxiClean® Versatile Stain Remover to remove dirt, grass, perspiration and even caked in red clay stains.
Activated by water, the unique OxiClean ingredients go to work unleashing bubbling oxygen power for effective stain removal that is safe to use on whites AND colors.
MIX: 1 scoop (fill to line 4) per 1 gallon of water.
Submerge stained items in solution after dissolved.
SOAK: 1-6 hours.
Depending on severity of stain, some stains may require more time to soak.
WASH: as normal.
Bench Chlorine Bleach. If misused, bleach can damage uniforms by weakening fabrics and eating holes in the fabric. Instead, add a scoop of OxiClean, along with your detergent, to every load of laundry to keep white baseball pants whiter and colored uniform tops brighter. This works great on jeans and school clothes too!
Strike Out the Dryer. Making sure uniforms are ready for every game can sometimes be a challenge, but no matter how much of a rush you’re in, do not put polyester uniforms in the dryer. The high heat can shrink the uniform and make letters and numbers crack, peel and bubble. The best option is to air dry clothes outside.
