Why is it so difficult to remove grass stains from clothes?
Grass contains chlorophyll, which is a really useful substance. It helps plants to convert sunlight into oxygen. We see chlorophyll as green, because it absorbs red and blue and reflects the colour green to us. That makes it a natural dye. As with all other dyes, they are easier to remove when they are fresh. Once they are dried in, they can really colour a fabric. That is why it can be difficult to remove old grass stains from clothes.
