How to Remove Grass Stains

Grass and leaf stains are like a rite of passage for most children and they seem to take it very seriously. Every other day you’ll find grass stains all over their jeans, shirts, trousers or converse shoes. However, no matter where the grass stains are, there are a few simple tips that can help you get rid of them.

Removing Grass and Leaf Stains: Step by Step

Get grass stains out of jeans, shirts, sports uniforms and more by following the below steps:

  • Pick from the range of Cold Power Liquids and Powder
  • Pre-treat the clothing with Cold Power Liquid detergent
  • Wash at the highest possible wash temperature that is safe for the clothing
  • Check the stain is gone

Choose the Detergent

To get grass stains out of sports uniforms, trousers and shirts, you must use the right detergent. For most clothing, you can use Cold Power, but please check care label instruction of your laundry before washing. For more delicate items, consider using a sensitive detergent.

Pre-treat and Wash

After letting the fabric soak, apply a small amount of Cold Power directly onto the stain and gently massage it in. Wait a few minutes, then wash at the highest possible temperature safe for the fabric. You can find this information on the garment label.

Check the Stain

Never put your clothes in the dryer after washing without checking to see if the stain is completely gone first. Drying before the stain is gone can set it permanently. If the stain is still there, pre-treat and soak your laundry in your selected Cold Power detergent for a couple of hours, then wash the clothes again.

Getting Grass Stains Out of Special Laundry Types and Fabrics

When most people think of grass and leaf stains, they think of the knees of their trousers. However, they can show up on your trainers as well. Getting rid of stains on these items takes a different approach.

Apply a small amount of Cold Power Liquid directly to the stain. Then, using an unused, clean toothbrush, work the detergent in so it loosens up the dirt and the green stain caused by grass. Wait for at least 20 minutes to let the detergent do its job, then wash your converse or any other type of trainer with a normal load. You may need to repeat the process if the stain isn’t gone. Prerequisite for that procedure is that the item is washable and colourfast, please check care label first.

How to Remove From Different Fabrics

Some fabrics are more delicate than others. If you’re trying to remove grass stains from wool, silk or satin clothing, hand wash the fabrics with a sensitive detergent after you finish soaking them.

Removing Grass Stains From Different Coloured Fabrics

When you’re removing stains and cleaning fabrics, be sure to use the correct type of detergent based on the colour of the clothing. Cold Power can be used on most items, but we suggest testing in an inconspicuous place first if you aren’t sure.

Special Detergent for Removing Grass Stains

It may be tempting to use a home remedy to get rid of grass and leaf stains. However, home remedies don’t always work and can result in damage to your clothes and even your washing machine. Instead, use a Cold Power detergent designed to fight stains safely and effectively.

Don’t let grass stains get you down. Remove them easily with Cold Power detergent.
