How to remove grass stains – the most effective home remedies
The sooner you try to remove a grass stain, the more likely you will succeed. It’s worse if such stains have been on your clothes for several days already. Then it can be much more difficult, but it’s always worth trying natural methods (before you reach for the most powerful stain removers). Here are the 4 most effective, environmentally friendly remedies.
#1 Gall soap
Gall soap contains only natural ingredients and washing agents. It is based on beef gall extract and oils (coconut, palm). It is also completely safe for humans, which is why it is often used to care for children’s clothes.
To use it to clean a grass stain, first moisten the soap with water. Then rub it into the stain. You can use a toothbrush to rub it in (but only on some stronger fabrics, like jeans). Leave the soaped stain for 15 minutes, rinse it with lukewarm tap water and then put it straight into the washing machine and wash it normally. Repeat this process if needed.
Look for toothpaste with menthol or whitening agents. These ingredients, which make teeth white again, can make grass stains disappear. Remember to only use this method on white materials though! To get rid of the stain, rub the toothpaste thoroughly into the stained fabric and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Then, rinse the garment in lukewarm water and wash it in the machine.
#3 Lemon juice
Lemons have a slight bleaching effect, which helps remove stains from fabrics. Spread the juice of a fresh lemon on the grass stain and let it sit for about half an hour. Then put the stained clothes in the washing machine and wash them.
Vinegar is, along with citric acid and baking soda, one of the best home remedies that, used properly, can replace almost all chemical cleaners. However, to avoid damaging the fabric or color, vinegar should only be used on strong fabrics, such as denim.
How to get rid of a grass stain using vinegar? Pour some of it directly on the stain and gently massage it into the fabric. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then wash it in the machine. If needed, repeat the process.
