My son had an amazing day with friends last Saturday. One of the activities they enjoyed was playing airsoft wars. Some time during the war my son managed to get a really large grass stain on one knee of his jeans.
He waited several days to show me the grass stain, and when he did it was already so late at night, I didn’t have the energy to do something about it right then, because frankly I thought at 48 hours old the stain was probably a lost cause anyways and not worth getting my nose out of my book after a long day to try and remove it.
By morning I was full awake and ready to attack the stain. I remembered from my mustard stain experiment how well super washing soda had worked and decided to start soaking my son’s jeans in a basin of water with about 3/4 of a cup of super washing soda mixed in.
When I was about to throw them in the laundry I realized there was still a small amount of grass stain left. I rubbed some Tide in the stain and tossed it in the laundry.
I could only see a faint trace of a stain when I took them out of the wash, so I tried one more trick. It was a beautiful sunny day and I had read that drying clothes in the sun will fade grass stains. Sure enough it worked and not a trace of the grass stain is left.
