Red clay

Recommended Posts

Ok.... might be a silly question to some.. but how in the hell do you get the Georgia red clay stains out of your gear? The staining power of this stuff is amazing? Anyone have any tricks?

Its just riding gear,can you live with the stains? I know its pretty hard to get out NC clay is the same. Try to pre soak wit stain lifter. I am not all that concerned with stains on my gear so I dont know.

Hey where in GA are you? I am getting ready to move to Fairmount in March :cry:

Man, you should see my gear. You'd think I was riding a Honda with all the red in my clothes! Like Tony said...it's just gear. If you wanna look good, take up tennis or something. :cry:

Simple Green. I still find clay on my bike from last years Durhamtown trip. It's like friggen concrete once it dries.

I am sorry to say, You Don't get it out of your clothes, and if you don't wash you bike right away you don't get it off either.

Red clay is like ice when it's wet.I hit the ground often, so the riding gear is a little tatered... I just laid out my gear on the drive way and pressure cleaned it with 2600 lbs. of thrust, works pretty good, but not 100% clean, the washer did the rest. Remind me to tip her :)

There's even a T-shirt company in Georgia that uses the local clay to dye their fabric, I've seen them at music festivals before with rows of red/orange shirts for sale. Maybe try some bleach, but I doubt it'll come out.

Try spraying shout on it, let it soak for awhile, them wash it in oxy-clean. This will get most of it but you cannot keep it stain free in this region.

My solution, next time buy non-white riding gear. Or at least gear with as little white on it as possible. :)
