    if it's staining, it's probably not just mud.

    Buy another one, then stop riding when muddy out. Saves a lot of money on drivetrain bits, too

    +1, it's not as if you wear your riding clothes to work or weddings.... or is it?

    It's mountain biking, you're meant to get dirty.

    Same happened to my cream shorts the other day, which I also like to wear out :-( Still can't get it out. Vanish is censored in my experience. Going to try bicarb in the sink and scrub it.

    I took my friend's daughter out to llandegla once. Despite telling her to just put on any old clothes that she wouldn't mind getting dirty (she must have plenty, she's a bit of a tomboy) she decided to put on a pair of thin, crisp white, brand new combats. :roll:

    Then she got soaking wet by riding through the puddles. Ahem. I had to take off my T-shirt and give it to her to wear, to hide her decency. Luckily my shirt was big enough to practically be a mini dress for her.

    Hanging clothes in direct sunlight, works for curry stains, worth a try :wink:

    Why are MTB economics; spend twice as much as you intended, but only half as much as you wish you could afford? :roll:

    South facing windowa are fine, it's the UV not the heat that does it, maybe take it to tantastic or other sunbed parlour if you as so inclined, though watch the tanline :wink:

    The only thing holding some of my MTB clothing together is a hardened layer of mud/blood/sweat.

    It's not a fashion show!
