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. 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. 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.
How many moms are having trouble making those white pants sparkle? How many moms are worrying how to keep their child’s uniform pants clean and bright? And this year is different…there is the promise of the holy grail of tournaments. We realize your worries are multiplying as you want to make sure your child’s uniform is spotless when he or she participates in tournament competition, a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

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 and softball pants whiter and colored uniform tops brighter.
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 the clothes.
OxiClean® is the best solution to fight stains and to whiten and brighten your Babe Ruth leaguer’s uniform.
OxiClean® is available in a powder and liquid format. So make sure OxiClean is included on your tournament packing list. Follow the above-listed tips and you will experience a miracle after the wash!
