How to Keep your White Breeches White

Photo by Adam Hill

Constantly finding yourself with brown, stained breeches that once sparkled white? Members of The Plaid Horse Adult Amateur Lounge shared their best tips and tricks to keep your white breeches stain-free. 

The winning products? Fels Naptha Laundry Bar and Stain Remover, Out White Brite Laundry Whitener, OxiClean, and Scotchgard.

It’s always great to be ahead of the game, so another solid purchase is the Scotchgard Fabric Water Shield. It repels water, blocks stains, and makes stains easier to remove. Before using, make sure the breeches are as clean and dry as possible. Spray generously, hang to dry, and repeat once a year. 

For stained breeches, soak overnight in Out White Brite Laundry Whitener or Oxiclean. If stains are exceptionally stubborn, soak the breeches for multiple days. 

Next, gently scrub the stains with Fels Naptha Dial Laundry Soap, and wash. Repeat if necessary.
