Using biological powder?
Toothpaste?

Phone the mother, admit the socks are filth and defy your attempts to clean them, and offer to buy some more.

Chances are she'll tell you not to bother!

So I have heard. Tooth whitening toothpaste is meant to be great at getting out stubborn stains. Not tried it myself, but several of my friends swear by it!

you just rub it into the stains and leave it on for about an hour.

I guess it bleaches it, same as teeth? I dont know really, I usually either just put it in the sun, or pretend it was a new stain that morning and put in on DD anyway blush 'oh silly mummy, spilt your brekky down your top again this morninr, oh i should have noticed before leaving the house! tsk tsk!'

Well buy them one new pair, and let DS2 keep the black ones for next time he feels the need to run around outside in his socks. Make him a little Black Sock Bag to wear round his neck for sock emergencies grin
