If your yard is covered in artificial grass then you need to know exactly how to clean it, right? After all, it is so much easier to maintain than real glass, however, it still needs a bit of cleaning from time to time so it looks good.
Of course, the cleaning methods you should use depend on how dirty the grass is. Today, I will teach you what to do when there are light stains and dirt as well as when the grass is super filthy and you need to deep clean it!
How To Clean Artificial Grass?
– If it’s not that dirty
In this case, start off with getting rid of mud, debris, or any liquids you might have spilled on the grass. Use a paper towel or a cloth to soak up any liquids then vacuum the grass if there are debris and impurities.
Next, fill a bucket with warm water and add a tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Dip a brush in the mixture and start scrubbing the grass. Be gentle and work in an upward motion so the grass remains sticking.
After you are done simply rinse the grass either with a garden hose or with a bucket filled with water.
– If it’s really dirty
If your grass is extremely dirty and it’s covered in dog poop, paint, greasy stains, glue, gum, or all sorts of other things that you have no idea how to remove, here is what to do!
If your dog peed on your grass – use distilled white vinegar to get rid of the stain and the smell.
If there is dog poop or you dropped food on the grass – remove the impurity then use ammonia to get rid of any stains or bad odour!
For oily stains, grease, paint stains, etc. – again, use ammonia to clean up the mess.
For any sticky substances like gum or glue – scrape as much as possible with a knife or a spoon then use a commercial adhesive remover!
