My only advice is don't wear them!

I only wear jeans/black/dark coloured jodhpurs around the horse, I save my beige and white ones for competition day, and put them on shortly before I ride.

What Saskia said.

Otherwise, a capful of bleach in some hot water, let the whites sit in there for an hour, then put them in the machine. DO NOT wash any coloured clothing with them at this point lol.

You can also try putting lemon juice on the stains and then leaving them in the sun for a day or so :)

Have you tried oxyclean? I agree with others, save whites for show day.

Another vote for Oxyclean for all future dirty spots.

Heavily soiled items it soak in a some Oxyclean (water I have added it to) before washing.

Since your pants have been washed a couple of times already you probably will not be able to get those stains out.

Don't USE OXYCLEAN!!! There is a chemical in it that will pretty much disintegrate the knee pads, and they will be totally ruined. I learned that the hard way.

I think bleach would be your best bet.

Peroxide eats knee pads? Really?

I have never heard this before. Do you have any links to anything about it? Sounds interesting, I would like to know more.

Bleach seems like a poor product to use if you are worried about the life span of your knee patches.

Lemonjuice and set your joddies in the sun for an hour or two - works like bleach but is softer on the fabric. Don't leave it too long as it may discolour the garment as well as take the stain out!

I do think it is cruel that we must wear light coloured clothing around horses - it is inevitable that it will end up stained or discoloured! Too bad brown and black just doesn't look quite as fancy.

The knee pads just disintegrated with one wash. Maybe spot clean with bleach..I had better luck with bleach than Oxyclean

I wonder what those knee patches are made of because I use oxyclean with my clarino full seats and have never ever had them so much as shrink, much less disintegrate. Wow...did you contact the manufacturer?
