Default Possible to get a gas stain out of a white jersey?

     

I have white O'neal gear, and earlier last year I spilled gas on it filled my CR125. The stain is just a few drops of gas on it, a real ugly brown.

Anyway to get out the stain, or is it time to get new gear?

If the stain has been there that long, I don't think anything will now get it out. You can try soaking in it a degreaser like Simple Green.

Yeah... White jersey's are tough... but if I was a betting man I'd say that is now a new practice Jersey! Depending on what the stain actually is I've used brake clean... but it was a fresh stain. Good Luck

It's a jersey, I say flaunt your stains with pride! I'm sure gas isn't the first or last stain you will put on it.

First of all, I'm assuming we're talking about an oil stain since hopefully you
were filling your CR with premix.

Like others have said, the problem is time. The other problem is if the
jersey has been washed and dried. Drying a stain in a dryer acts to make
it permanent. You can try some spray on degreasers, acetone, brake
cleaner, etc. Another good product is Oxi Clean. Lastly, after you have
done everything else, spray a little bleach on the stain before you throw it
in the machine. If all of that doesn't get it out, time to buy a new one.
Also, you might want to pick up a big funnel.
