For parents, there are few things more smile-inducing than listening to your kids joyfully play in the backyard, screaming with excitement and enjoying the outdoors. Active, outside play is both valuable and fun, but it brings about some cleaning challenges when your kids come back inside looking a mess. 

One of those challenges is laundering grass-stained clothes. Grass specifically can be stubborn one to remove, especially once it’s set. Luckily, there are a few easy remedies that’ll keep your kids playing and clothes clean.  

  • Pretreat the stain before washing. Fill a sink or tub with cold water. Make a paste-like mixture of powdered detergent and water and apply it to the stain. Allow the garment to sit for up to an hour. 
  • Another option is to use distilled white vinegar. Rub the stain with a 1:1 solution made of vinegar and warm water. Continue until it has been totally removed. 
  • If the stain happens to be on a white piece of clothing, it’s safe and effective to use this mixture of bleach (1/4 cup), hydrogen peroxide (1/4 cup), and water (3/4 cup). Cover the stain with the solution and gently rub. Allow it to soak for 30 minutes to an hour.  
  • Launder the item as usual only when the stain has completely disappeared. Wash the garment separately in order to protect other clothing items. 
  • Don’t ever use the dryer until the stains have been entirely removed. Applying high levels of heat to an existing stain will only make it permanent. Generally, allowing the clothes to hang to dry is a good option. 

With lots of outdoor play, grass stains are inevitable, but they don’t have to be a pain. These tips will keep your kids happy and their clothes spotless.
