Grass stains can be very difficult to remove. Fortunately, you may already have everything you need to remove the grass stains in your cabinet. Below are some natural laundry tips for removing grass stains:

Vinegar to Remove Grass Stains

Vinegar is an effective and low-cost remedy for removing grass stains. It is very simple to use vinegar to get rid of grass stains. All you have to do is apply undiluted vinegar to the stain. Let the vinegar soak overnight. After that, you can launder your clothes as you normally would.

You can also use a solution made out of one part warm water, one part vinegar and one part rubbing alcohol. You will need to use this mixture to pre-treat the stain. Let the mixture set for 10 to 15 minutes before washing it as you normally would.

Enzymes to Remove Grass Stains

Enzymes can help attack the protein in the stain. Using a detergent that contains enzymes before washing the clothing will help remove the stain in many cases. You will simply need to apply the enzyme detergent to the stain. If you have a powdered form of detergent, you will need to mix it with a little warm water before applying it to the stain.

Scrub the item with the digestive enzyme. After that, you will need to wait 15 minutes and then wash the item. You can also use digestive enzymes to remove the stain, which can be found at your health food store.

Rubbing Alcohol to Remove Grass Stains

You can pre-treat a stain using rubbing alcohol. Apply it to the stain directly and then allow it to dry. Rinse the stain in cold water after the alcohol has dried. After that, you will need to use some enzyme detergent. Rinse the clothing again. Let your clothing dry before you wash it.

No one likes grass stains, but removing them may be easier than you think. Rubbing alcohol, vinegar and enzyme detergents are some of the things you can use to get rid of grass stains in your clothes. Keep in mind that alkaline detergents, ammonia or decrease-type detergents should never be used to remove grass stains, as these will actually “set” the stain and make it harder to remove later.

Fun And Interesting Facts About Laundry Machines

84869830Washing machines have revolutionized the way we do laundry. Not only do they make the process much easier to deal with, but they also ensure that the clean we want is the clean we get. However, the machines and dryers we know and love today were not always around, and there are many fascinating laundry facts surrounding their creation.

The Earliest Washing Machines

The very first washing machines were made in the 1700s. They consisted of wooden boxes that were filled with clothes, pushed through the device by a hand rotary. The clothes were taken through a straining and rubbing process that wore away at grime and dirt until the clothes were clean again.

Eventually, this version of the washing machine evolved into a more complicated device through innovation and experimentation. This more advanced version used an array of gears and pegs to push clothes through soap and water, with cleaner clothes appearing on the other end. It was invented by William Blackstone to be given to his wife as a birthday present.

Modern Electric Washing Machines

It was not until 1908 that the very first powered washing machine was created. Studies showed that when washing machines were loaded from the front, instead of from the top, they were much more efficient, and were able to clean the loads set in them much better. While there is a split of washing machines made as such today, experts still believe that the front design is better.

Washing Machines and the Women’s Liberation Movement

While conventional knowledge may suggest otherwise, academics strongly believe that the washing machine has done a lot of for the women’s liberation movements over the years. While it is largely considered to be a homemaker’s task, the fact that the appliance became available at home freed up the woman’s time enough to allow her to enter the workforce as she saw fit.

Almost all innovations have such a rich and fascinating history. If you would like to learn more about laundry facts and techniques, browse through our many articles as here at Cleaner Visions.
