Hi folks, a bit of a strange question here but i gotta ask it as i binned a few pairs of shorts last year because of this.

ok going to mexico soon (no swine flu jokes please), going back again this year, the problem is the water is soo bad there it really discolours clothes, mainly swimming shorts by either pool water or swimming in the sea.

I always take with me a travel clothes wash, but last year it was useless against the water there, i did wash them regardless but the whites kept going more orange and discoloured, I put them all on a high temp wash when i got home with quite a number of stain removal names, but the orange dullness never came out, as a result I've had to chuck about 3 decent pairs of shorts away and also a couple of t-shirts that have caught the wet shorts at the bottom.

Anyway, the question i would like to ask is :

Is there any DECENT product on the market that i can take with me and use to soak my affected clothes in overnight?

Bearing in mind that I'm going on holiday and don't want to be taking with me a 5L bottle of washing liquid!

I'm sure quite a lot of people would of had this problem as I know a few was complaining about it last year who we met up with.

Cheers

no chemicals in the pool, salt will also rot clothes along with the other crap in the sea

well, some of the shorts i have have lots of coloured designs on them, so I was worried about colours running.

If there is some kind of "Travel Bleach" I'm willing to give it a go tho :)

if you bleach them you wont have to worry about colours running, there will be no colours left to run - lol

Glo white do a travel wash, maybe baby bottle steralising tablets as they aren't as harsh and hot water tends to set a stain so maybe try washing on a cooler temperature

whats wrong with the sea in the gulf of mexico then?

Water always looks crystal clear on tv shows and much cleaner than the med which doesnt stain my clothes!

Could be anything, a reaction with chlorine, salt from the sea, the sun, also could be the type of fabric
