Stains are extremely irritating, and when they appear on the fur of your favorite companion, you feel disgusted. Yes, we’re talking about your adorable canine. You may have noticed your dog rolling around in the grass, causing its fur to turn green. If this has happened to you, you are probably looking for solutions to get the grass stains out.
You can use vinegar and water mix to remove grass stains from your dog’s fur, or you can purchase grass remover products on the market. Simply spray it over the stains in the fur and leave it for 5-10 minutes. After that, you can wash it in water to remove the stains.
But some dog breeds are so sensitive that they can resist the application of vinegar on their fur or even their skin. In that case, you need to look for some other available solutions.
How to get grass stains out of dog fur?
In order to get grass stains out of the dog fur, there are some simple tips and tricks you can follow, and these are as follows:
Vinegar and Water solution
The primary options that the canine owner chooses are the vinegar and water solution. This is prepared with three portions of water and one portion of vinegar. You can spray this mixture over the dog’s fur and leave it on their fur for the next 5-10 minutes. Now wash the coat with water, and voila! The stains are out.
But do know some dogs have such sensitive skin that they can’t resist the application of vinegar, and in that case, you need to avoid this option.
Grass stain remover products
If you explore the market, you will see so many products available that claim to be the best grass removers. Well, you can consider them once or twice only. But if your dog used to get grass stains frequently, we will not suggest you rely on this option. To begin, be aware that grass remover products contain chemicals that can negatively impact your dog’s fur quality and, in some cases, cause skin allergies.
Dog safe shampoo
The dog-safe shampoo is the ultimate solution to remove the dark stains from your dog’s fur. These shampoos are chemical-free and will not cause any harm to the coat and skin of your dog. Just ask the vet for the brand or type of shampoo you can choose for your canine and use it to remove such stains from his fur and maintain its quality.
Instructions to follow to remove grass stains from dog fur:
There are some instructions that you need to follow for removing the grass stains, and these are as follows: –
Step 1: Give a bath to your dog:
The first step you need to take is to give a bath to your dog thoroughly. Here we are not suggesting you use any product. Just use warm water and do it properly.
Step 2: Get a dog-safe shampoo:
After bathing your dog properly, get a dog-safe shampoo and thoroughly apply it. Pay close attention to the areas where the stains are present, whether they are light or dark. For the next 3-5 minutes, leave it alone.
Step 3: Scrub properly:
There are scrubbers available on the market that you can use. Also, if you do not have any scrubbers available, you can do it with your hands. But to do it with your hands, be sure to cut your nails.
Step 4: Wash the shampoo away:
After scrubbing is done, wash the shampoo away. Here you need to be sure that there is no shampoo left in the fur. If the shampoo is left, it may cause skin allergies and itching.
Note: If the stains are minor, you do not need to shampoo your dog’s entire body. You can apply shampoo to a specific area and gently brush the area with a toothbrush; this will also help to remove grass stains from his fur. This applies to all dogs, regardless of their fur color.
What we learned from all this?
Removing grass stains is not a difficult task. Most people use a vinegar and water solution to remove stains, but you can also use shampoo. However, only use them in small quantities. Using such products in large quantities is not recommended because they may harm your dog’s fur!
