Stain Removal Guide - G

By Kimberly Duncan

Grass Stains
When grass stains damage clothing, work on removing the stains at once. Treat the stain from the inside out so that the stain will be removed instead of it spreading through the fabric. Put a cloth underneath the stained area so that it does not affect the other side of the garment. Grass stains are best removed with an acidic solution. Grab a bottle of white vinegar and put two tablespoons on a bowl. Dab a small amount of that solution on the affected area using a sponge or a light-colored cloth. Dab gently, but make sure that all areas are covered. After this, wash the garment and dry as usual.

If the stain is not removed by the above procedure, try using a cream of tartar solution. Mix water and a substantial amount of cream of tartar to make a pasty solution. Apply the solution on the stained area using a toothbrush. Allow the garment to dry then brush off the dried paste to remove the stain. If the grass stains have been there for a long time, you can add an extra step by applying small amounts of diluted alcohol on the stained area. Rinse with warm water and dry. You can do sample test on hidden parts of the clothing to make sure that the solutions you use will not damage the fabric.

Gravy Stains
When gravy falls on clothes or on a tablecloth, you will need an intensive grease-fighting dishwashing liquid solution. Use a toothbrush to scrub the stain with the solution. Make sure to rub gently because you might destroy the fabric or cause the stain to spread. Once you observe that the stain is gradually being removed, you can wash the garment with warm water.

Do not use any detergent when washing the garment or tablecloth. It is best to soak it in warm water overnight if the grease stain has deeply penetrated the fabric. Once the stain is no longer visible, launder the clothing or tablecloth in a regular manner. Dry as usual.
