Super dirty dressage pants?
 
I had a quadrille performance today, which I wore my white dressage breeches to. They got dirty from my saddle all over the knees and seat. The dirt I think is from conditioning my saddle before the performance. Does anybody know how to get as much dirt out of them as possible? I will attempt to wash them, but if that doesn't work I may have to see if my local cleaners can get it out. Any tips?

P.S. the tag says no bleach

I usually just machine wash mine (white full seat arista breeches) on gentle with other whites in cold water with a little detergent. If they get really dirty after a show I'll soak them in some warm water in the tub over night with a little detergent in the water. I'm not sure if this is good for them or not, but it's what I do. In terms of saddle marks.. I don't know how to get those out. At least the part that gets stained you can't see while riding because it's against the saddle.

oxyclean spray on laundry stain remover spray, then wash with detergent and a non bleach stain remover additive like Oxy clean powder or Clorox 2.

Try Goop
 
I use Goop on my whites. You can find it at walmart in the auto section. Get the one in the white tub. It is a hand cleaner that works on laundry as well as getting manes and tails sparkling white. It is kind of a paste, I wet my whites, and then brush it on with a soft bristle brush. Just don't brush too hard. Then hand wash or toss it in the machine on the gentle cycle.
