Most grass stains could be removed simply by washing the item according to the care instructions, particularly when the stain is fresh. However, if the stain has been allowed to set or proves to be difficult to get out or eliminate you may want to think of other treatments or methods.
Removing Stains from Jeans
Treat the stain as soon as possible, by employing a pretreatment product from your neighborhood grocery store. Test the product on the garment for colorfastness by applying to an unexposed area. Let it stand for five full minutes then rinse. If the color is affected, don’t utilize any more of the product. Also, check the label on the container of laundry detergent for pre-treatment instructions. To remove any last traces of the stain, an all-fabric bleach might be necessary. Again, remember to check for colorfastness. Bleach the whole garment following the manufacturer’s instructions, then launder as usual. You might also want to try oxygen bleach for color garments.

- Baking Soda – Like vinegar, this stuff eventually ends up in many home remedies. You are able to apply a paste-like mixture of baking soda and water to the stain. Scrub in a few drops vinegar with a brush. The vinegar causes a “fizzy” reaction that lifts the stain.
- Hydrogen Peroxide – Be cautious with this specific one since peroxide can alter the color of a garment. You might want spot check it the colorfastness in an inconspicuous spot first. Apply hydrogen peroxide to the stain before washing, and then launder as usual.
- White Toothpaste – Use the non-gel kind. Apparently applying toothpaste to a grass stain (on denim specifically) will remove it.
- Dish Soap – For cotton, you are able to scrub with dish detergent as well as laundry detergent. Rinse. If the stain remains, use an enzyme product (as discussed below).
- Rubbing Alcohol – Soak the stain for 30 minutes in rubbing alcohol before washing as usual. Or may you sponge the stain with alcohol, to allow it dry, and then scrub with dish detergent and let it dry again. If the stain remains, use an enzyme product (as discussed below).
- Enzymes – Buy digestive enzymes (the kind people consume) at a health food store or your local grocery. Mix a teaspoon of the powder with enough water to make a paste. Apply the paste to the stain and allow it to sit for an hour or so before washing as usual. There’s also| commercial enzyme-based stain removers available (Biz, Axion) also available at your local supermarket. Remember that you should use enzyme cleaners at normal ambient home temperature and the bleach at warm or hot temperatures as with the digestive enzymes.
