You may think that grass stains are permanent, but if you spot a grass stain on your clothes, all hope isn’t lost. There are a few expert tricks for how to remove grass stains that really work and paired with the right products, the grass really is greener on the other side! Don’t go tossing your favourite pair of grass-stained jeans just yet!
Why are grass stains so strong? Grass contains chlorophyll, which is what makes it green, and chlorophyll can act as a dye to fabric. This means that grass stains are often tougher to tackle than you're average stain because it permeates deeper into the fibres of the fabric.
As with most stains, the longer you leave it before treatment, the harder it'll be to rectify. So, we've said it before and we'll say it again, treat your stains as soon as possible and check out these tips first...
