New pencil cases have been chosen, shoes have been shined and all their name labels are sewn on. The return to school is here and with homeschooling behind us (fingers crossed), you’ll want to ensure the kids are looking their best for the trip to school. Whilst we cannot guarantee they’ll come home looking as smart as they left, with our laundry tips, you can keep on top of the inevitable stains you’ll encounter throughout the school year.
How To Tackle Grass Stains
Don’t worry – It is not the end of the world if your kids come home with grass stains all over their school uniform, whether that’s from making daisy chains at break time or from playing football on the field in their cleanly-pressed shirt. Depending on the fabric concerned, there are a couple of different ways to remove those stubborn green stains.
- * First, you should treat the stain as soon as possible with a commercial stain remover or a small amount of laundry detergent. Work the liquid well into the affected area.
- * Allow it to soak in for at least 15 minutes, then put the item into your washing machine.
- * After the wash cycle is complete, make sure that the stain has completely gone before attempting to use a tumble dryer to dry the item as the heat from drying is going to make any remaining stain even harder to remove.
- * If the grass stain has been left on the garment for a few days or it didn’t disappear when you tried the steps above, then submerge the clothing in a solution of warm water and a fabric oxygen bleach for several hours, before washing the item in the machine as usual – note: this is not recommended for coloured items, silk or wool.
