Learn to get out even the toughest stains and messes on men’s work shirts.
When you’re on the job, things can get messy. Working on cars can lead to oil stains on your clothes. You can get grass stains from working in the yard. You get the picture. With a little help from Blain’s Farm & Fleet, you can learn the best ways to clean women’s or men’s work shirts.
Pre-treating stains before you put them in the wash is key to clean work shirts for men and women. There are a few ways to remedy stubborn stains on a work shirt. One of the best stain removers you can use is Fels-Naptha.
The tried and true laundry soap has been around since 1893. It’s used for pre-treating stains on clothing, and is known to be super effective on all kinds of stains, including sweat and chocolate. While chocolate might not be an issue on work clothes, sweat can definitely be a tough stain to get out. Simply dampen the stained area and rub the Fels-Naptha on before putting it in the washing machine.
DIY Stain Removers
You can also use products you already probably have at home. Just remember to read the label and washing instructions on your work clothes before you start treating the stains.
Baking soda – Grease and oil stains can be treated with baking soda. Sprinkle baking soda on the stains, and then soak the shirt in white vinegar. Scrub it down with dish soap before you put it in the washing machine. Not only does baking soda work as a stain remover, it also deodorizes the work clothes. That’s a win win in the wash.
Hydrogen peroxide – One of the cheapest ways to wash men’s work shirts is with hydrogen peroxide. It can be used to treat grass stains, dingy whites, glue, and food stains. Most stains can be pre-treated with a mix of half water and half hydrogen peroxide.
Dish soap – Mixing dish soap with hydrogen peroxide is a great stain remover that you can make at home. Just mix one part liquid dish soap with 2 parts hydrogen peroxide. Dab or spray the mixture on the stain before sending it through the wash.
Besides getting the stains out of the workwear you already own, you can also invest in no stain work shirts for men and women. The no stain technology infused in the shirt fabric can repel oil, water and other stains. They’re perfect for any job and you can find them at Blain’s Farm & Fleet.
