Green grass, longer days, better and better weather – it’s the perfect time of year for the kids to be playing outdoors.

Of course, happy as we are to see them having fun, we’re not quite so happy with the stains they bring back. Kids have an amazing talent for making messes, and one of the most common stains they grace us with is also a pretty stubborn one – grass stains.

What You’ll Need
– Spray Bottle
– Ammonia
– White Vinegar
– Liquid Laundry Detergent

Step 1
Mix 1 cup of ammonia, white vinegar, laundry detergent, and water together and pour it into the spray bottle. “Era” detergent is strongly recommended, but any good detergent should do.

Step 2
Give the bottle a good shake and then spritz the grass stains – don’t be shy with the solution.*

Step 3
Work the solution in by hand (wear gloves) or use a gentle scrubbing brush.

Step 4
Wait 10 to 15 minutes and then wash the clothes like normal. Before you dry them, check the stains to make sure they’re gone. If necessary, repeat this process to remove any residual stains.

And there you have it – an easy but potent grass stain remover that can also treat a wide range of other stains too! Thanks again to Jillee at onegoodthingbyjilee.com.
