white spyder jacket already has dirt

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

I wore my new spyder jacket for the first time today and it's mostly white.

 

When I got home, I noticed there's a bit of subtle dirt stain on the back of it on the bottom.  I think it's from my back pack.

 

What would u guys use to clea off the stain?

If it's dirt or salt, brush it off with a brush, no chemicals.

If you're going to own a white ski jacket then you'll have to get used to living with stains.

Try Dawn (dish soap) and water before anything.. Nikwax has a great line of fabric care products- and possibly something to wash your jacket with that won't mess with the waterproofing (which may prove a worthy investment with a white coat). : )

I would wear it with pride. Proof that you actually ski, and not just put the gear on, pizza down the hill one time and spend the rest of the day in the lodge complaining about how there is too much snow.

Yup, because in the long run it will just keep happening.  I owned one mostly white ski jacket.  After wearing it 3-4 times I wondered what drugs I must have been taking when I bought it.  And it was an expensive Spyder jacket.

This is why i stay away from white ski gear.  Learned my lesson with a nice white northface jacket.

Brush some liquid laundry detergent into the stain, let it set for about 20 minutes, then wash it.

And for the record, it doesn't really matter that much about it being white.  Just about any other color except black or brown is going to show battle scars from actually skiing and stuff dripping from the lifts and lodge roof edges on you after the first time you use it.

Happened to Mrs5150's powder blue ski jacket. She ended up sewing a pretty patch over the stain.

Missing the point; some nice bark/resin stains, maybe if you're lucky, a scuff mark; all status symbols. Not as impressive as a branch hole in your helmet, but close. 

 

On another note, noticed that white, especially pants, is the new color of choice for boarders. Hmmm.

Whenever I get dirt on my clothes I try to cover it up with blood.

Would this be the specific product I would need?

Yes, but I've never had luck using it to get out stains. Get a bar of Purpose soap (it's plain glycerol soap) an try that. It shouldn't hurt the finish like a detergent.

So, what color is the snow where you come from?
