ds's karate suit is covered in stains (dh stupidly took him to play in the beer garden on the way home angry) and now it's ruined

I have tried stain remover and bleaching it but the bleach didn't even lift it

It's only mud so not sure what I am doing wrong lol I used thin bleach I think and soaked it in this mixed diluted with water but did put some on neat first and no difference

I normally put stain remover on the stain and a bit in the washing machine dispenser then put item on a warm wash...I then leave it in direct on a really hot day and the sun normally bleaches out the stain!

I second the bright sunshine bleaching effect-my ds comes home covered in tomato sauce from school dinners and no amount of stain remover gets that out.
However you may be waiting a while for sunshine!

Wash on a hot wash with some soda crystals in it - you can even soak them in it if necessary

laundry soap rubbed directly onto stains before washing, then echo what others have said - sunlight works wonders!
