You know these stains well. Their green, they smell like the lawn, and they’re the result of a great game or a tumble
down the hill. Grass stains are a part of life, but just because they get on your clothes doesn’t mean you still can’t go out and play. Getting rid of grass stains can be easy and effective and for every stain, there is a solution. So don’t worry. You can easily get it out and get those play clothes ready for more action.
First, apply a prewash treatment product to your stain and let sit for about 15 minutes. For a more natural approach, you can use a solution made up of one part white vinegar to two parts water. Use a toothbrush to work the liquid into the area. Finish with a quick wash using an enzyme detergent, which breaks down proteins and lifts the stain from your garment. For nonwashables, apply a store-bought stain fighter like Shout or Zout and let sit for about 15 minutes. Next, use an eyedropper and vinegar to remove any remaining color. Finally, flush the area thoroughly with cool water.
Sounds easy, right? Give it a try on your next load of laundry.
