Maui Red Dirt shirts are white shirts that are dyed naturally using the red dirt that is unique to the Hawaiian Islands. In 1992, Hurricane Iniki came ashore and ruined a clothing company’s stock, staining all its white shirts with red dirt. The ruined shirts became a hit on the island and soon became a product for the company. They sell to the locals and to tourists. If you have one of these shirts, you can wash it yourself rather than spend the time and money to have it cleaned.
Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
Place the shirt inside the sink or basin and push it down to make sure it is completely submerged.
Pour in the mild soap or color-safe detergent. Swish the shirt around in the soapy water for 30 seconds. Let it sit and bleed out any red dye that might seep out.
Rinse the soap out of the shirt and drain the sink or basin.
Hang the shirt up to dry.
