Custom t-shirts might be for one event or occasion, but they can last for years as part of a wardrobe. According to leading screen printers - Rush Order Tees - many customers design t-shirts as activewear as team jerseys so of course, stains are bound to occur.
Custom tshirts company Rush Order Tees has released the following tips tips remove stains from t-shirts and more.


For mud stains, professional screen printers recommend first letting the mud dry before attempting to remove the stain. Once dry, remove as much mud as possible with a dry brush. Remaining mud can be removed with normal washing or sponging with standard laundry detergent or powder, but if the stain is a greasy mud stain it is a good idea to pre-treat the stain with spot remover or a grease solvent (dry cleaning solution). Repeat if necessary.

Fruit Juices

When it comes to fruit juice stains on screen printed shirts, time is of the essence. In a wet form, fruit juice stains are relatively easy to remove — but once dried, they can be quite troublesome to eradicate from any fabric.

Rush Order Tees experts recommend treating the stain with cold water and a laundry detergent or bleach (if appropriate) as soon as possible. White shirts can be spread over a make-shift basin and boiling water can be poured through the shirt from a variable height. Colored garments can be soaked in a warm borax solution (1 tbsp to 1 cup of water is a typical ratio).

Ice Cream and Dairy

First sponge the stain with luke warm water. Wash as usual.


The following method is safe for use on white fabrics, but for colored fabrics it is necessary to test the method first to ensure it will not damage the fabric. Drop lemon juice and a little pinch of salt on the stain, and leave it in the sun to dry out. Afterwards, wash normally and the rust spot should be diminished. Repeat if necessary.

Grass Stains

For removing stains after a day of outdoor activities, it may be necessary to address grass stains found in clothing. Soak the stained garment in a chlorinated bleach solution. After soaking thoroughly, wash normally with laundry detergent or powder.
“These are just some common stain types that one can come across in everyday life. Being prepared for the worst can ensure your custom t-shirts will be wearable for years to come.” explained Jim Donaghy, Rush Order Tees Screen Printing Production Manager.
