How to remove grass stains

The parent of any sporting child knows the pain of grass stains all too well. What was once just presumed pointless trying to remove, now has tried and tested methods that will bring those horrible green marks out.

• Soak the stain in Vanish Gold Oxi Action. If the stain is still present after washing, dab with a 50-50 mix of water and rubbing alcohol, let the stain soak in the mixture. *Be careful with colours as this can sometimes cause the colour to run.

• If the above method doesn’t work – try soaking the grass stain in vodka and then dabbing gently with toothpaste. Wash as normal.

    Wonderful tips! I often get lazy and as a result clothes wear out quicker than they should because I don’t take enough time to fix stains as they happen.

      I think we are all guilty of this at some point Kylie! The kids just seem to find dirt everywhere unfortunately.
