Before you try these stain removing tips, you should test them out first on a small section of the fabric to make sure that the products won’t damage your clothes.

It is very hard to remove a grass stain, but here are some of the best ways to get rid of them. First, apply detergent to the stain and then rub it into the fabric. Wash the item as usual. You can then use white vinegar to remove any part of the stain that is left after washing with stain remover.

Before you use vinegar on your clothes, test it on a small area of the fabric.

If no color comes out you can safely use vinegar for removing grass stains.

Chocolate

First, remove any extra chocolate from the cloth. You can use any stain removing detergent to remove the stain. When you are spreading the detergent, you should use a soft-bristle toothbrush so that the detergent sinks into the cloth, then rub the cloth together and leave it for five to ten minutes. After that, wash the stained cloth with the hottest water possible.

Chewing gum

Before using this method, test it like you did for the grass stain. In order to remove the gum, simply soak the fabric in hot vinegar for up to three minutes. The gum should come loose on its own. Repeat until you get rid of the stain completely. Finally, wash the garment with hot water.

Fruit juice
