How to Remove Grass Stains

How to Remove Grass Stains

Playing and picnicking in the grass are some of the greatest pleasures of the season. But the resulting grass stains can take some of the fun out of the day and ruin our clothing.

This formula for grass stains may be a big surprise, but a wonderful one at that because you can use the same technique for eating up the stains of carbohydrates, fats and proteins!

Simply go buy digestive enzymes for humans at your health food store or pharmacy–powders or pills are fine.

Mix about 1 teaspoon of the powder (grind up a pill until it is a powder) with enough water to make a paste. Spread the paste onto the stain. Let it set for an hour or so before laundering as usual.
