One of the most annoying things for moms are those pesky grass stains that never seem to wash out. It never fails, we buy our children nice clothes and have them looking their best for church, school or a special occasion, only to turn around at the last minute and find the knees of their britches green. I truly think it is a ‘must’ in the little boy’s Handbook of Life to destroy and ruin things in the name of fun, but honestly, mommies wouldn’t have it any other way. So the next time you turn around and see ‘wasted money’ when looking at your children’s grass stains, try this. It might just help preserve some of your ‘mommy sanity’.
1. Soak a sponge or cloth in rubbing alcohol and let it soak for a few minutes.
2. Rub on some liquid dish soap (Dawn works great).
3. Rinse the clothing thoroughly and check to see how much of the stain is gone. If some of the stain still remains, allow the clothing to air dry then repeat the process.
Note: Hot water and heat will set stains. Do not launder until the stain is completely gone.
