How do I remove stains?

Baseball Clay Removal from Clothing

You can remove baseball clay by first letting it dry thoroughly and brushing off as much as possible. Then you can rub the stain with Murphy's Oil Soap, leave for 15 minutes, and rinse with cold water. Or, instead of the Murphy's Oil Soap, you could use a solution of 1 tablespoon borax in a cup of water. If the spot persists, use an enzyme presoak, or soak the item in a gallon of water to which you've added a cup of ammonia (or use bleach if the items are white).

Works amazingly well! Removed MOST of the clay stains from my sons' white baseball pants.

I'm a potter, so always have clay clothes. This will keep more of the clay out of my washer. Thanks.

Murphy's oil soap didn't remove the red clay dirt form my boys rash guard shirts. I also tried Fels Naptha soap which didn't work either.
