Summer months spent outdoors invite mud and grass stains onto unwelcome places. Try these quick and easy ways to remove them and keep your home clean.
Take it away with tape.
Adding water to a mud stain actually makes it worse. Instead, wait until it’s dry and place some packing tape over the mark to lift it away.
Use meat tenderizer..
Dampen the grass stain and sprinkle meat tenderizer on the spot before tossing it in to the wash. Stains will magically lift away.
Make marks disappear.
Before washing a grass-stained cotton or denim garment, apply rubbing alcohol to the mark, then soak in hot water to safely dissolve stains.
Remove mud from carpet.
If the kids tracked dirt into your carpet, wait for it to dry, and then use a small brush to loosen up the mud. Then just vacuum up the dirt particles.
Work it out.
Mix 3 parts baking soda and 1 part vinegar to form a paste. Gently work it onto the backside of a grass stain. This will push the stain outward instead of further into the fabric. Launder as usual.
Stains on your skin.
Soap and water not cutting it for removing the green hue? Wash the area with vinegar and warm water to dissolve the grass pigments on the skin.
