How to Remove a Grass Stain

Summer means light-colored clothing―and light-colored clothing often means grass stains. The quick approach shown in this video should get the green out.

What You Need

  1. Check pre-wash stain-removal spray (or a solution of white vinegar and water)
  2. Check toothbrush (or a rag or nailbrush)
  3. Check laundry detergent

Follow These Steps

  1. Pre-treat the grass stain

    Apply a pre-wash stain removal treatment to the stain and let sit for about 15 minutes. For a more natural approach, use a solution made of one part white vinegar to two parts water.

  2. Lightly scrub your stain

    Use a toothbrush (or a rag or nailbrush) to work liquid into the area.

  3. Launder with like fabrics

    Finish with a wash using an enzyme detergent (most standard laundry soaps are enzyme-based), which will break down proteins and lift the stain from your garment.
