Remove Grass Stains
Tired of finding green stains on your children’s clothes? Do you often find grass stains on your shoes after going for walks? Whether you’re dealing with grass stains or leaf stains, these tips will make it easy to get that green pigmentation out and renew the look of your clothing.
Removing Grass and Leaf Stains: Step by Step
Get grass stains out of baseball pants, jeans shirts and more by following these steps:
- Soak the stain in cool water
- Choose a detergent and stain remover that works well for your clothing type
- Pre-treat the garment with your detergent
- Wash the fabric using the ‘heavily soiled’ dosage on your chosen detergent
- Check for remaining stains
While most stains require pre-treatment first, grass stains need a good soaking in cold water to soften the stain and make your chosen stain remover more effective. Never use hot water for a grass or leaf stain. This will simply set the stain and make it harder to get out.
Choose the Detergent and Stain Remover
Pre-treat and Wash
Pre-treat the stain by rubbing a small amount of the detergent onto it. Wash as normal in the highest possible wash temperature according to the maintenance label.
Check the Stain
Before you toss your clothing into the dryer, always check that the stain is completely gone.
Getting Grass Stains Out of Special Laundry Types and Fabrics
The knees of your pants aren’t the only places where grass stains tend to show up. If you own converse shoes or any other type of trainers, you’re likely going to need to know how to get rid of grass stains from this type of clothing.
Apply a liberal amount of your chosen detergent, then use a clean and unused toothbrush to work the detergent in and loosen the dirt. Let this sit for up to 20 minutes, then wash with a normal load. If the stain doesn’t lift, repeat the process.
Removing Grass Stains From Different Colored Fabrics
Using the right detergent is essential when removing grass stains from different colored fabrics. White fabrics benefit from Persil Universal Powder or Gel because they are specifically designed to not only fight stains, but keep whites looking like new. Colored fabrics, like blue and khaki will better benefit from the Persil Color Powder, which help prevent fading and removes stains from colored clothes.
Special Detergent for Removing Grass Stains
Avoid using natural or homemade remedies and detergents when cleaning grass stains off your clothing. While rubbing alcohol, vinegar and bleach may help get rid of the stains, they can also harm the fabric your clothes are made of or damage your washing machine. Instead, use Persil detergents.
