You know what time it is! Since Chicago only has 2 seasons, you have to enjoy warm weather any time you can. We all want to run outside, set up our grills in the park or backyards and enjoy friends.
Whether its for Frisbee, people watching or just plain chillaxin (chilling and relaxing), all this fun happens on carpet of green grass. Grass that is plush to walk in likes to leave you with nice souvenirs of the fun you had.
No worries, Lynne the Laundry Lady is Tougher than Grass. Those stains are no match for her!
1) Remove excess stain by brushing. If you haven’t done it by now, invest in a toothbrush just for this purpose.
2) Use your laundry detergent to pre-treat the stain for at least 20 minutes. Use old toothbrush again to rub detergent into stain.
3) Wash in warm water. A laundry booster or detergent with bleach is recommended.
4) Repeat steps if any traces of the stain remain.
Treat stains promptly. Fresh stains are easier to remove than old ones. If the stain is on a nonwashable fabric, take it to the dry cleaner as soon as possible, and describe the nature of the stain and the fiber content of the garment.
Read and carefully follow package directions when using any stain removal product.
Always test stain removers on an inside seam or other hidden part of garment for color fastness. To test, apply product and let stand 2-5 minutes, then rinse. If color changes, do not use product on garment.
When using a bleach, do not try to bleach just one area of garment; bleach the entire garment to prevent uneven color removal.
When treating, place stained area face down on a clean paper towel or white cloth. Apply stain remover to the underside of the stain, forcing stain off the fabric surface instead of through it.
Never put chemical dry-cleaning solvents directly into washer.
Thoroughly rinse and air dry areas treated with dry-cleaning solvents before placing in washer, to avoid a fire.
Do not mix stain removal products together. Some mixtures, such as ammonia and chlorine bleach, can produce noxious fumes.
Always launder washable items after treating to remove residues of the stain and the stain remover.
Have patience; it takes a little extra time and effort to remove some stains.
