You know the feeling. You’ve just hit a home run and as you’re rounding the bases, you feel a little extra resistance with every step. You get to home plate and realize that your once white baseball pants are now stained green. Here’s how to get turf out of your pants so you can keep your game face on.
Whether you’re a professional player or a weekend warrior, if you play baseball on artificial turf, you’re going to end up with chunks of turf in your pants. While most of the time it’s not a big deal and you can just brush it off, sometimes the turf can get caked on and be difficult to remove. If you find yourself in this situation, there are a few things you can do to get the turf out of your pants and back in the game.
The first step is to try and remove as much of the fresh turf as possible. This can be done by gently patting or brushing the area with your hand or a soft cloth. If there is still a lot of turf attached, you can try using a blunt object like the back of a spoon to scrape it off. Once you’ve removed as much of the fresh turf as possible, it’s time to tackle the dry chunks that are left behind.
For dry chunks of turf, the best thing to do is to wet them down so they are easier to work with. You can do this by spraying them with water from a bottle or hose, or by dunking your pants in water if they are not too dirty. Once the chunk is wet, it should be softer and easier to remove. You can use your fingers or a blunt object like a spoon to dislodge it from your pants. Repeat these steps until all the chunks of turf have been removed.
If you find yourself dealing with caked-on turf that is proving difficult to remove, you may need to resort to using a cleaner or solvent. Be sure to test any cleaners in an inconspicuous spot on your pants first to make sure they won’t damage the fabric. Once you have found a safe cleaner, apply it liberally to the affected area and let it soak in for several minutes before attempting to remove the turf again. You may need to repeat this process multiple times before all the residue is gone.
Once you’ve finally gotten all the turf out of your pants, rinse them off with water (if using a cleaner) and let them air dry before wearing them again. Taking these steps will help ensure that your pants stay clean and free of grass stains so you can focus on playing ball instead of worrying about your clothes
