Stain Remedies For White Clothing?

I would really like to get a pair of white breeches, and I just love how the white pants look with black boots, but the only problem is, I'm pretty much a dirt magnet. I don't know how it happens, but I can never keep my light clothing stain free (which is why my wardrobe consists off 99% black, blue, and gray) does anyone know of some really good stain removing tips?

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

You are going to think I am crazy but the best product I have found for stains-oil, grease, grass, etc is plain old Formula 409 all purpose cleaner. I use it to pretreat stains (soak the stain with it about 1 hour before washing) and even have used it on set in stains and had them come out. Heck on grass stained jeans I've sprayed the stains and thrown them in the basket, washing them a few days later with good results.

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

There is a product called Soilove that it's very good on stains. It's not available everywhere (when I go to San Diego I stock up because I can't get it at home) but it's definitely worth looking for.

Sard Wonder Soap on the stain, then soak in Napisan for a few days. Put more Sard on the stain/mark (if any) before putting in the washing machine and wash with Blue-O (optical brightener) :)

I also find wearing loose PJ pants or trackies over my breeches in between classes keeps me 100% cleaner as I am a dirt magnet too. haha

Breeches have some stretch to them, I always show in white breeches. So to preserve the elasticity and keep them white as you can, rub the stain with baking soda, use a toothbrush to scrub the stain. Wash in hot water and I like Tide pods.

The best product I have worked with is something called Dry Wash. You have to order this stuff online because it needs special handling, but it will remove ANY stain. We use this product on everything that requires stain removal at work.
