We're only three weeks in to the term and ds's shirts look terrible! They have to wear blooming logoed polo shirts so it's not like I can go and buy hundreds from Tesco and throw them away each week.
Today ds came home with a massive black smear on the front of his shirt, he says he fell on a black bit of the playground (wtf??), I've washed it twice now, dabbed it with neat bleach, used Vanish stain treatment, some Dr Beckmann spray on stain stuff and chucked a load of soda crystals in the wash each time I've washed it but it's still there, as are the various other grubby stains on two other shirts that have gone through the same process!!! Do I really have to spend £30 every three weeks on new shirts or is there some genius stain treatment I can use?
You get used to them being stained. Try to think of school uniform as industrial workwear for aggressive dirty environments rather than an immaculate dress parade uniform. The purpose of it IMO is to stop all the "home" clothes from getting ruined.
They do get slightly less stain-prone as they get older, Reception is notorious for marker pens.
