How to get Grass Stains out of Jeans

Kids are infamous for getting stains on their jeans. If your child was out playing and got grass stains all over his or her jeans you are most certainly looking for an answer on how to get grass stains out of jeans. Perhaps you’re looking for a way to get the grass stains out of your own jeans. Either way, we have the solution for you!

How to get Grass Stains out of Jeans Method 1:

  • Check the Tag. Many times clothing will have specific washing requirements. The tag will let you know if there are certain things you cannot do. You don’t want to ruin those jeans while trying to get the stains out!
  • Soak in Cold Water. If you don’t have time to address the issue right away, soak the jeans in cold water. Cold water will prevent the stains from setting in the jeans.
  • Apply Detergent Directly on Stains. To ensure the best chances of getting the grass stains out of the jeans apply detergent directly to the stains and rub it in. Tide has a product that has rubber bristles and dispenses a small amount of special detergent as you rub it against your clothing. This will help to loosen up the stain. Any laundry detergent and brush will work.
  • Run Normal Cycle. After you’ve done the first 2 steps you can run a normal wash cycle. Make sure the stains are out and you can dry them as you normally would.

White corn syrup poured on the grass stain and rubbed in. Let sit 10 minutes, then wash. It works!
