Parents with pre-teen children always wait for the beginning of the warm season with special trepidation. At this time, kids start playing outside a lot and often come home with grass stains from head to toe. Adults who go on picnics do the same.

Thus, everyone should know how to remove grass from fabric. OBOZREVATEL tells you about the most effective ways to deal with such stains.

Saline solution

This method is considered to be the best, especially if you remove the stains while they are fresh. Dissolve a tablespoon of salt in a glass of water and treat the stain from the edges to the center with this solution. In the remaining liquid, the contaminated area should then be soaked for 30-40 minutes, and then the item should be washed in the usual way.


This method is suitable for light cotton or linen only as ammonia can wash out dark or bright colors from the fibers. To prepare the cleaning solution, dissolve a tablespoon of the product in a glass of water. Use a cotton pad dipped in the solution to treat the stain so that the area is well moistened and leave it on for 30 minutes. Afterwards, machine or hand wash the item.

Hydrogen peroxide

Pharmacy peroxide will help remove traces of grass from synthetics. Apply the product to the stain with a cotton pad and leave it on for 30 minutes. Wash as usual in the end.

Baking soda

Soda paste can also help clean grass stains. Dilute baking soda with water to a paste and apply it to the stain. Let it dry, rinse off the residue, and wash the item.

Lemon juice

Fresh lemon juice will help remove grass residue from light fabrics. You just need to squeeze half a lemon directly onto the stain, leave it on for an hour, and then wash the treated area with laundry soap.
