How to remove stains from children's clothes without chemicals

Summer is a favorite time for kids: what could be better than kicking a soccer ball, climbing trees, or riding a bike? However, parents' enthusiasm for carefree vacations wanes a bit when they have to wash their children's clothes almost every day - and grass, fruit, or berry stains are not easy to get rid of.

Parents often hesitate to use chemicals on delicate fabrics. OBOZREVATEL has selected simple ways to remove stains from children's clothes without chemicals.

Grass or soil stains

While the stain is still fresh, blot the spot with a damp cloth - it should absorb all the dirt. Treat the stained area with lemon juice or white vinegar - acids will help remove stains effectively. Leave the juice or vinegar on the clothes for about 20-30 minutes. If necessary, machine wash the garment.

Berry and fruit stains

Three simple steps will help you quickly clean your clothes from berry or fruit stains.

  1. Soak the stained item in cold water for 15 minutes as soon as possible.
  2. Laundry soap penetrates the fibers of fabrics and cleans clothes from deep stains. Rub it on the stained area and leave it on for 10 minutes.
  3. Rinse the child's garment in cold water and run the machine wash cycle.

Blood stains

Active entertainment often leads to minor injuries, and playing outdoors can cause bruised knees. So if you get blood stains on your clothes, experts recommend treating the fabric with hydrogen peroxide and washing it by hand in warm water. This life hack is suitable for light-colored items, as peroxide has a pronounced bleaching effect.

By the way, you can also use ordinary salt. After repeated washing cycles, clothes begin to fade. Special powders to preserve color do not always guarantee the desired effect. Our grandmothers used to wash with salt in times of shortage, so this is a time-tested method. Read the article to find out if you can use this life hack when washing clothes in a machine.
