The end of spring and summer is a time for picnics, outdoor walks, and, of course, active games. It's easy to get dirty during all of this.

While stains from the ground or lean food are usually quite easy to remove, grass can leave your clothes stained forever. The Spruce has told you what to use to remove such stains.

Grass leaves very difficult stains on fabrics because it contains a lot of plant chlorophyll, or dye. According to experts, this is why it is so difficult to get rid of them.

Before you do any manipulations with your clothes, read the information on the label to know how to wash them. You may need to take it to a dry cleaner right away to avoid ruining it.

Stain remover

Treat the stained area with a stain remover as soon as possible. If you don't have a stain remover, use a laundry detergent or powder.

Rub the detergent into the fabric with your fingers or a soft-bristled brush, then leave the fabric in the soap for about 15 minutes before washing.

Put the clothes in the washing machine. If the stain has disappeared, you are done, but if not, continue to the next step.

Oxygen powder

If the grass stain on your clothes is already several days or even weeks old, then go straight to the oxygen powder soaking method.

Mix oxygen powder with lukewarm water as directed on the package. Then put the grass-stained clothes in the solution and leave them there for one to eight hours.

Then wash it in the washing machine. If the stain still persists, repeat the procedure.


Mix white distilled vinegar in a 1:1 ratio with water and apply the solution to the stain. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse the garment in cold water.

Isopropyl alcohol

As a last resort, you can try wiping the stained area with isopropyl alcohol. However, be careful as it can also dissolve the color of the fabric itself. Therefore, before using this method, test it in an inconspicuous place.

If the alcohol does not affect the color of the fabric in any way, then apply it to the grass stain with a sponge and then blot with a towel. Continue the procedure until the stain disappears.
