Home Remedies: Easy Grass Stain Removal

Sharing is caring!

We were standing at the baseball practice field last night watching our little ones slide into all the bases before heading out for our 11 year olds ball game.

Boys MUST slide into every base you know.

Every time.

The tanΒ  pants of one of the little guys on our t-ball team were now a solid shade of green around the knees.

His mother turned toΒ  me and said what will get grass stains out?

4 Natural Remedies for Grass Stains:

  1. Pour a bit of corn syrup on the stain and launder as normal.
  2. Scrub toothpaste into the stain with an old toothbrush. Launder as normal.
  3. If the toothpaste is not doing it alone, add equal parts vinegar and baking soda to the toothpaste mixture. Scrub some more and launder as normal.
  4. Bad grass stain that needs to soak? Rub it with molasses and let it set over night. Launder as normal.

What is your mommy solution for removing grass stains?


  1. I used to soak white baseball pants (ugh) in water with some powdered dishwasher detergent. It has been a long time, but I think I used to pour Era directly on the stains too.

    1. Thank you so much Carol for the suggestions.
      I have never used Era, but their commercials do illustrate great stain fighting.

  2. Thanks so much for the great ideas! We are just getting into baseball/park play season and I know my 8 kiddos are going to give me the biggest challenge yet! πŸ™‚

    This is my first visit to your blog—I’d love for you to stop by and say Hi on mine, too, if you’ve got a minute!

    Have a great day,

  3. Great tip! Thanks- I have 2 boys which means lots of grass stains around here. Sometimes my husband even gets them!

    Pinned this for football season. Thanks for tips.

    1. Alexis- so glad these are tips you find useful. Thanks for pinning!

  5. I was a baseball mom. Way back when, we used Fells Naptha bar soap. It worked pretty well. Your suggestions sound even better. Oh well..too late now (until the grandkids get old enough to play ball, that is) πŸ™‚

  7. Thanks for linking up with us on the Hip Homeschool Hop! I was so glad to read your post because I have an 11-year-old daughter who gets grass stains all summer long, and several of her dresses have ended up being “play dresses” since we couldn’t get the stains out! I’m going to give your ideas a try, and hopefully her clothes will stay presentable this summer. πŸ™‚
