How to Remove a Grass Stain
Always check the care label. If your clothing is “dry clean only” have them sent to the dry cleaner as soon as possible and be sure to inform them of the type of stain. If the item is “laundry safe,” proceed to the next step.
Turn the garments inside out to ensure you are forcing the stain out of the fabric instead of working it into the fabric.
Blot stains with clear liquid dish-washing detergent or laundry detergent. Work the detergent into the garment until the stain is completely covered. It is best to use detergents that contains enzymes to help break down the protein in the stain.
After treating the stained area, rinse and wash according to the care label instructions.
If the stain persists, soak the garment in a solution made of water and an enzyme detergent.
Repeat steps 3, 4, & 5 as need, then launder as usual.
