Grass Stains: Grass stains can be stubborn because the natural green substance called chlorophyll can penetrate clothing fibers and create a stain. To remove grass stains start by soaking the stain in a cold water vinegar solution. Next launder the stained item with detergent on a cold setting. If the stain still exists, repeat the process.
Dirt and Mud: During the spring, rainfall can make yard work very muddy. To remove dirt and mud stain you will first want to let any mud dry. Once it has dried take the dull end of a knife and gently scrape away any excess dirt. Rub some detergent into the stain and launder with cold water. Continue to launder the fabric with cold water until the stain is gone.
Ketchup: We have all been there before, you are about to take a big bite of your burger or hot dog and that little drop of ketchup sneaks out of the bun and finds its way onto your clothing. To remove ketchup stains, first remove any excess ketchup from your clothing with a spoon. Then blot the stain with vinegar and rinse to dilute the stain. If the stain still exists, launder the item with warm water and detergent.
Grease: If you are do-it-yourselfer grease and oil stains may be more common. Whether you are fixing your bike or getting the mower ready for spring grease stains can pose a threat to your clothing. Grease and oil typically used for lubrication will not be absorbed by a fabric as quick as other liquids. Start scrapping away any access grease with a dull knife. Next, run the item under warm water with the stain facing the bottom of the sink so that it does not bleed into the fabric. Add detergent as you rinse. Next launder the item, if stain still persist launder again.
