Fresh stains can be removed more easily than old ones. Treat stains as soon as possible. Most stains are removed by dissolving them with a solvent. Here are some tips how to remove stains using natural cleaners.
- For fresh grass stains rub your clothes with a piece of soap, then soak it in a solution of warm water and soap. Let it stay for 15 minutes, then wash and rinse as usual.
- You can get rid of fresh grass stains using vodka. Apply vodka with a sponge, rubbing the stain from the center of the stain towards its edge. Then launder in your regular wash. Fresh stains will disappear.
- For stubborn grass stains rub your clothes with ammonia or salt. Soak the item in warm soapy water with a small amount of ammonia, 10 drops per gallon of water, and wash.
- Take 6 tablespoons of salt per glass of hot water, apply the solution on the stain and soak for 15 minutes. Then wash and rinse as usual.
- For white clothing make the mixture of 1 teaspoon of ammonia and 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide for 1 glass of water. Cover a stubborn grass stain on fabric with this mixture and let it sit out for 10 minutes. Afterwards wash the item with hot water.
