Grass Stains

Removing grass stains can be a bit tricky, but here's a method that usually works well:

2. Pre-Treat with Stain Remover: Apply a pre-treatment solution to the stained area. Mix a tablespoon of

with water to create a paste and apply the solution directly to the stain. Rub the solution into the stain gently with your fingers or a soft-bristled brush.

3. Let it Soak: Allow the pre-treatment solution to soak into the fabric for at least 15-30 minutes. This will help to loosen the stain and make it easier to remove.

4. Wash as Usual: After pre-treating the stain, wash the clothing item as usual, using the hottest water temperature that is safe for the fabric. Be sure to check the care label on the clothing item for specific instructions.

5. Check Before Drying: Before drying, check to make sure the stain is completely gone. If any traces of the stain remain, repeat the pre-treatment and washing process.

6. Air Dry: Once the stain is fully removed, air dry the clothing item. Avoid using a dryer until you are certain the stain is gone, as heat from the dryer can set the stain further.

7. Repeat if Necessary: Stubborn grass stains may require multiple treatments to completely remove. If the stain persists after the first attempt, repeat the pre-treatment and laundering process until the stain is gone.
