Ok, so I know its an odd question but here goes.

How the buggery are you supposed to wash the new style 100% polyester shirts like the 125 London or similar.

I have gotten a little bit of mud on both my new society shirt and my London shirt will it shift I have tried just about everything I can think of to get it off and I'm left with what looks like mud staines on my shirts.

Any and all suggestions greatfully received. Though I have heard the move faster and you dont get muddy.

Dampen jersey with cold water. Scrub with an old toothbrush and washing up liquid. 30 degree wash.

Hotter washes cook (denatures) the proteins and make it impossible to get off.

Repeat PRN.

Any hope short of repeated washing to reduce stain, if I have already done a couple of 40 deg washes and probably denatured the protein ?

Take home to mum. She will dampen jersey with cold water. Scrub with an old toothbrush and washing up liquid. 30 degree wash.

I wish! I was going to say that was the reason I've moved in with my girlfriend but she won't do it!

Crikey, so soon, maybe another girlfriend ? :biggrin:

As For the London 125 shirt, why not ask Cidersetshire, they've probably already had and solved this problem ? :pepper:

Peperami has been on the forum for a decade, so you are the valued newbie at 18 months, but we all know you as DaftMedic anyway, or you can be Ben2 :biggrin:

If you are a student, just get a new shirt off the welfare state when it gets dirty :sarc:

Back to OP, spay with a stain remover (vanish etc or own brand, same stuff different label) and was at 30c, I know that might not help now, but you'll know for next time!

Have to say with the assistance of my mum who'd come on baby sitting duty so I could go AR, 30 degrees and washing up liquid worked a treat.

Thanks all
