The best way to remove grass stains, according to the guy who cleans the Philadelphia Eagles’ uniforms

If there’s anyone who knows how to remove a grass stain, it’s Joe Lattanzio. He and his brother Vinnie run Lattanzio’s Linn Cleaners (opens in new tab) in South Philadelphia, a business which their parents started in 1947, and which, for the past 10 years or so, has cleaned the Philadelphia Eagles’ uniforms after each game. 

About a dozen years ago, Greg Delimitros, who is now the Eagles’ vice president of equipment operations, took the coaches’ gameday gear — mainly polo shirts and pants — to Linn Cleaners to get them washed after each game, according to Joe. A couple of years later, and Linn Cleaners was handling all of the Eagles’ uniforms. Nowadays, Linn Cleaners not only takes care of Philly’s football team, but also the costumes for many of the city’s theater groups.
