    Trying to remove the "Moab" from my bike clothing...help!

    So I went to Moab last weekend and splashed through a few puddles on the White Rim Trail. I am having a lot of trouble getting the reddish/orange stains out of my clothing. Any suggestions? I already tried the Oxi-Clean soak.

    Thank you!!

    Leave them there. They are scars from battle

    Every time I take out my tent it's filled with half a pound of Moab.

    There's just not much you can do.

    Although it seems strange that dirt/mud wouldn't come out of most bike clothes, do they have a lot of cotton in them?

    Just capitalize the T in your name and you'll be right.

    That's a hallowed stain. Leave it.

    Yep. +1 what the others said.

    I usually try not to clean my bike for a few weeks after I return from Moab so the red sand/dirt can remind me of a great trip to Mecca.... and make my friends back home jealous that they don't have red dirt staining their bikes.

    I found the best way to get Moab dirt out of my clothing is to purchase a new set of white towels and linens from Bed Bath & Beyond and wash them altogether. The new white towels will soak the Moab right out of your gear.

    I do the same thing when I buy a new pink or red top from Anne Taylor.

    Quite frankly, I have a reddish Moab hue in the tiny grooves in my rear bumper and on the floorboards of my truck, year 'round. I just bust out the slightest of ironic grins everytime I see it, which just happens to be every day. You know, a "I'm not there but it's here with me" kind of thing.
