White Bleach Spots on a White Jersey

Q:  How can I fix white bleach stains on my white NBA jersey?

A:  It’s good news that your stains and jersey are both white—it sounds like the stains are actually places on the jersey that ended up cleaner than the surrounding fabric.  This often happens when someone has a white item that is not bleached regularly, and then gets a stain that is pretreated with Clorox® Bleach Pen® Gel.  The problem is the “white” shirt actually has a level of soil that has built up over time that the gel removes, in addition to the stain, producing a “white” stain.  Luckily, you should be able to catch the rest of the shirt up to the cleaner spots by using a bleach soaking solution of ¼ cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach per gallon of water.  Fully submerge the shirt for 5 minutes, and then wash the jersey in the hottest water recommended on the care label using detergent + ¾ cup bleach.

Something else to consider is if the jersey includes a team logo of some sort.  If it's a screen print, then the bleach soak and follow-up wash should still be OK, but if it's embroidered or appliqued, then you should use Clorox2® Stain Fighter & Color Booster (1 scoop or capful per 2 gallons warm water for your bleach soaking solution and let it soak overnight.  Follow up with a hot water wash using detergent + more Clorox2®).  Hopefully this is helpful!

How do you clean your favorite jersey?
