Detergent or Stain Remover
Sometimes, all you need is laundry detergent – no other products required! Using a liquid detergent like Omo Ultimate Liquid will help to lift stains, including grass. First, remember to read the care label on your clothes to ensure it is suitable for the fabric, then if so, simply rub the affected area with a small amount of detergent. This pre-treatment will help to loosen the stain. Finally, wash your garment as normal. It’s as easy as that!
Methylated spirit contains solvents which help to lift off the green pigmentation left by the grass. To use, apply a small amount to a clean sponge and dab it across the stain (remember to read the care label and test on a small area first). Don’t wipe or scrub – you’ll spread the dirty mark across more of your clothing or even make it more difficult to remove. Rinse in cold water, and then apply a small amount of liquid detergent (or powdered detergent made into a paste with a little water), massaging it into the clothing, helping it to get deeper into the fabric. Leave to sit for 5 minutes before washing in the machine as normal.
Bleach: Yes or No?
When dealing with grass stains on white clothing, you may be wondering if you can bleach the fabric to get the dirty marks out. This really depends on your preferences, and the type of material you’re handling. Some people prefer not to use bleach due to its strong smell. If you do decide to use bleach, ensure you work safely, follow all the directions on the label, and never leave the garment in a bleach solution for longer than five minutes.
Now you know how to get grass stains out of clothing, you’re won’t have to worry about dirtying your clothes. So, how about that picnic in the park?
