Q: Grass Stain. My mom and I were walking my dog at the park tonight and she fell in a hole and got grass stain on her denim capris. Does Cascade and Lava soap work on denim too? And/or do you have any other ideas of how to get grass stains out of denim?  Thank you for your time and have a great weekend! -- Reply 29/05/2005  (Ref:1101)

A: Grass Stain: Try Cascade or similar dry dishwasher soap. When my sons played sports I learned this and it worked every time. I even use it on my bathtub. It seems to have lost is sparkle or that clear coating that makes it easy to clean. When I use Cascade it gets cleaner and in 1/2 the time. Also Lave hand soap work well too. On grout in the tub and clothing stains but rinse it out so it doesn't lighten clothing. Good luck!  Chris
