Dirty Softball Player? GET Iron Out!!!
This week on Facebook, Softball is for Girls has asked for fans to submit photos of their dirtiest little ball players. We soooo get it! Dirt and softball go hand in and hand, and most of the girls sweating out there under the hot sun are super excited for any opportunity they have to get DIRTY! It truly is a wonderful thing to break down the barriers of gender roles and expectations by not just allowing, but encouraging our little girls to GET DIRTY! In fact, one of the commons cries from the bleachers from parents to their daughters on the field is, “You better get dirty!”
In order to correlate with this weeks theme, we are going to let you in on a little secret with our product spotlight! (And offer you some coupons along the way – just click the link right here!) (AND NO WE ARE NOT BEING PAID TO PIMP THIS PRODUCT!)
When it comes to brick dust and white uniforms, there is no product on the face of the Earth that compares to Iron Out! For real! Iron-Out, is by far the most superior product available today that will clean dingy, gross, yellowed, stained and stinky uniforms. In fact, it works so well that even if you have previously laundered your daughter’s white uniform and stains remained, Iron-Out will STILL get them white again.
Of course, with all good things in life, there is a downside. The stuff stinks, (much worse than even the grossest softball players socks) and is definitely an inhalation hazard. (You have been warned!) We have found that the best way to get tough stains out of white uniforms is to full up a 5 gallon bucket with hot/warm water, dilute the Iron-Out in the water (please cover your face when you pour the product in to avoid breathing it in), and allow the clothing to sit. Outside! Typically, 2-3 hours is sufficient, although we have allowed white uniforms to soak overnight.
The good news is that to date, even after 10 hour soaks in Iron-Out, no uniform colors or lettering have been bleached out. That being said, there are a few folks who have told us that Iron-Out will lighten embroidery, and it can rust zippers and buttons if left in too long – although personally speaking this has never happened to us! Once the uniform is clean, it will take several washes to wash away the Iron-Out smell!
In our neck of the woods, we can find Iron-Out at Wal-Mart and Piggly Wiggly. The Dollar General also sells a product called White-Brite that is similar. For a complete list of retailers check out the Iron-Out website. And GOOD LUCK!
