  1. Remove any loose dirt

    Shake the pants to remove any loose dirt. If there is caked on mud, use the dull edge of a spoon to scrape away the mud before washing. Remove as much as possible before putting the pants in water.

  2. Fill the machine

    Set the machine to warm water and the appropriate level. Add 1/2 cup of the iron removal product as the machine fills. Add the baseball pants and any other articles of clothing with yellow or rust stains to the machine. Stop the agitation of the machine while the clothes soak.

  3. Add detergent

    Add the normal amount of detergent and start the machine again. Allow the machine to finish the cycle.

  4. Check for stains

    Check to ensure the product has removed the stain before drying.

  5. Use bleach

    If the stain remains, rewash the pants, without drying, in detergent, adding 3/4 cup of chlorine bleach to the wash cycle.
