My daughter decided to run in the grass with her favorite pink pants on. Of course she fell and now has a huge grass stain right where the knee is. I have tried everything I know but the stain doesn't come out. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Okay, WHAT have you done so far? Have you put it through the dryer with the stain still there? If you've one that it's going to be even harder to get out now, but it's still possible.

Oh,no, I know not to do that. I had pre-treated it with three different stain removers, but after each wash, it was still there. I even soaked it in water over night and rubbed extra detergent in, still no dice. I'm at my wits end. Short of bleaching I just don't know. The pants are pink, I really don't want to go there. But I may have to completely bleach them white as a last resort and re-dye them. Not something I want to go through.

Have you washed them in hot water? Even if they're a cold water thing, it might not hurt to use hot water. I'd do the same procedure again, pretreat, prewash - use a color safe detergent with bleach or a separate color safe whitener like Biz or Vivid - do it in hot water.

I ended up washing them in hot water although it tends to shrink garments not intended for hot water. I had nothing to lose at that point;) I put bleach in, too, and a generous application of the Tide stain remover that comes in that pen size thing (it didn't do anything before I put it in the wash, so I don't know). The stain is almost gone now (at least faint enough for her to wear them without people thinking that I don't do laundry, lol). Thanks for the advice;)

Thanks. That was one of my many attempts to get it out, but it didn't work. Those grass stains are stubborn;)
