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....
BE SURE THE FABRIC IS BLEACH-SAFE!!
