Do you have a beautiful garden that is your pride and joy? Do you have outdoor furniture and upholstery placed there so you and your family can enjoy a cup of coffee outdoors? Then what is ruining the picture might be all the grass stains on the upholstery. It’s inevitable – when the furniture is outdoors, it’s prone to all kinds of stains and damage so you need to be prepared and know how to deal with them.
How to Remove Grass Stains From Your Outdoor Upholstery?
Grab your vacuum cleaner and start vacuuming up all the grass and soil.
Once the surface is ready to be treated, mix a tablespoon of laundry detergent with two cups of cold water. Dip a cloth in the mixture and start blotting the affected area. You can also use a sponge, however, keep in mind that you shouldn’t apply too much pressure. Take it easy and be gentle so you don’t spread the stain further.
Let the mixture sit for 15 to 25 minutes then blot with a dry paper towel or cloth so you absorb the liquid.
I also recommend you rinse the area with a damp sponge so you can remove all the soapy water – after all, soap attracts dirt, and the last thing you want is to remove grass stains only for them to be replaced with dirty patches.
In case the stain still remains, you will need to use something stronger than laundry detergent – oxygen bleach, for example. Make sure you dilute the bleach with cold water first.
If you don’t have that at home, you can also use acetone. Dip a ball of cotton in the acetone and gently blot the stain. Once you are done, you don’t need to rinse the area – the acetone will evaporate leaving no trace.
