Treat grass stains. Did your daughter come in from playing outside sporting green-kneed jeans? Or maybe soccer practice did a number on your son’s socks and shorts. A little sugar can help get those grass stains out in a cinch. Mix sugar with warm water to create a thick paste and dab it directly onto the stain. Let the solution sit and soak in for about an hour, then toss the jeans or soccer gear in the washing machine as you normally would.
