Treating Stains on Nylon

 Nylon is great for underwear because it's so low maintenance. It's resistant to dammage, fading and wrinkling. This isn't a fabric you need to dry clean - just toss it in the wash with everything else. Sometimes, however, you might get caught in a sticky situation and have to get rid of a stain. This stain could be anything from food to blood. You never know what might get on your Players underwear. That's why we decided to make a handy guide for treating stains on nylon.

Food and drink: Mix laundry detergent (not bleach!) and warm water and apply a small amount to the stain. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Then, use cloth wetted with only warm water to remove the soap. Pat dry with paper towels.

Grease: Dripped pizza on your nylon undershirt? It happens. You'll need a cleaning solvent. Use gloves and dab the stain with a cloth dipped in the solvent. Do not apply the solvent directly to the nylon!

Wax and chewing gum: Put your underwear in the freezer for an hour - really! Once the stain freezes, you can chip it off.

Blood, urine and vomit: Sprinkle hydrogen peroxide on the stain. Not only will it clean your nylon underwear, it will neutralize the odor. Use a dry towel to wipe off the area. There's no need to rinse.
