How to get grass stains out of school uniforms.

This week, Quinn and I did a Wisk science experiment. Quinn, although a golden child in many ways, still seems to get grass stains on his uniform pants' knees. In eighth grade for goodness sake. He says it's something having to do with tree surfing?

So, Wisk wanted us to try it out removing grass stains. Mad scientist Mommy (that would be me) and my super-genius science and math boy (that would be Quinn) said, "Sure!". Grass is a Protein Stain, one of the several groups of stains that end up on children's clothing. One of the hardest to get out in my humble opinion.

As you can see from our video, the Wisk removed the grass stain from the sample cloth. And we didn't even run it thru the washing machine. We just swished it in a beaker.

There are hundreds of different stains but most stains fall into three major groups:
* Carbohydrates such as milk chocolate (Hello, Little Debbie on your t-shirt)
* Proteins such as grass (obviously from tree surfing)
* Oils such as peanut butter (and Olive Oil, and PAM, and WD40)

Wisk says it's new powerful stain fighting formula doesn’t care which of these stains you encounter, it's new Stain Spectrum™ Technology will tackle them all. At least now I know I'll not have to cut the legs off someone's school pants and make them into shorts just because of impenetrable grass stains. Wish I had found Wisk sooner for that one.
