My son’s white 100 percent polyester soccer uniform is dirt-stained. How can I safely bleach it?
I have good news for you: polyester fibers can be safely bleached with Clorox® Regular Bleach2. Chances are the shirt also has a player number and maybe even a name. If those components are screen prints, then they should also be bleachable. If they are sewn on, then as long as the shirt’s care label says “100 % polyester” and not “100% polyester exclusive of trim” then the shirt should still be bleachable and you can proceed as follows:
Whatever you do, though, never apply bleach full strength to the shirt or any fabric!
