I have had white and yellow jerseys get absolutely trashed by riding mud. Since I couldn't use bleach on yellow, and since bleach is a little tough on fabric, I opted to just pre-soak the jerseys in Wisk and wash regularly. The stains didn't come out completely until the shirt was worn/washed about 5 times.

Good luck!

I now wear black in the mud!

It is good at getting ground-in "slid-into-second-base"-ball field dirt out. Give it a try.
It has a nice smell too.
more mud = jersey becomes black = no more problem...nmclimbo

Soak the white item in cold water and lightly wring the bulk of the water out. Then mix 1/2 teaspoon of bleach with 1 to 1.5 gallons of water..(you want enough water to 'float' the item) agitate well; then add item and agitate again. Now, place a lid on the container and PUT IN THE REFRIGERATOR for two or three days. Check and agitate about every 12 hours....this has removed lots of 'impossible' stains....
