Talking a walk in the park or playing outside are the most exquisite joys for kids, and for everyone. And yes, there are great times until you get back home and you see those grass stains on shoes and clothes. You may want to throw them in the garbage, but that may be expensive. Or you can try my way of cleaning grass stains on shoes.
Baking soda – my perfect ally in cleaning
For white leather shoes or substitutes, just use baking soda. Make a consistent paste with some water. Put the paste over the stains and use an old toothbrush to rub gently. As you insist, you will see that the stains will disappear.
Then, use a cloth soaked in vinegar and rub the area. You will see how grass stains will disappear. Finally, wipe the shoes with a dry white cloth.
Rubbing alcohol – just another way to get rid of grass
Never use chlorine, baking soda or vinegar to remove grass stains from colored shoes, especially if they are made of fabric, because it will destroy the colors.
Just use rubbing alcohol. Soak a white cloth in rubbing alcohol and gently rub the grass traces from the sneakers. Alcohol degreases vegetable oils and doesn’t affect the material.
Optionally, you can also use a damp paste of active oxygen detergent. Allow the detergent to act for a few minutes, then wipe with a wet cloth and rinse the shoe well. When it’s dry, the grass stains will disappear completely.
