    Default Getting a big manure stain off my white breeches, how?

    I must have sat on something fresh at JumpStart--and I really like these breeches. any ideas? Right now I've sprayed some stain remover on them, just as a start.

    Rider boy, haha!

    For stains on those darn white breeches, I've had the best luck with a mixture of tide and the powdered Oxy Clean. I scrub the stain with the paste mixture and let sit for quite a while.

    I make an Oxyclean paste and scrub that on, then let it sit for a few hours before washing.

    Oxyclean is great for organic stains. Poop and box wine don't stand a chance.

    I use one of the products designed to remove urine and other organic stains stains left by dog/cat "accidents".

    I just follow the directions which are generally to spray it on the spot, let sit (5-10 minutes) and instead of scrubbing I just put it in the washer on cold with whatever detergent I normally use.

    Works like a charm.

    haven't tried it on manure, but dmso helps with ink stains, PC national examiner taught me once. Guess thats an off label use, but it did work on that leak...

    Get a little dry cleaning fluid from your dry cleaner.
    Dab on the stain (dry breeches) with a soft white cotton cloth.
    If you have any leather on the breeches be sure the dry cleaning fluid does not get on the leather.

    Almost fail proof!

    Good luck!

    Carpet cleaner. Go big, or go home.

    Soak them in OxyClean for about 15-30 minutes - I don't know what's in that stuff but it is good!

    Oxy-clean. Readily available at any grocery store. Husband and son play polocrosse which requires white breeches/jeans. It does a great job of getting them clean again.

    Ozy clean......and hydrogen peroxide. Try Hydrogen Peroxide alone first. It works on almost any protein type stain, including blood. Then wash. Works on gray horses too!

    It *really* depends on the fabric! Call a dry cleaner and ask, or call the manufacturer of the breeches.

    I've also had good results just washing them over and over again without letting them dry in between. Sometimes it takes longer than I expect...and I give up, wear them with a shadow of a stain, and a few washes later they're perfect again.
