Hops stains

Over the years, writing on this blog, I've been asked a lot about different kinds of stains and how to get it out of denim. Wine, coffee, ink, beer and so on. I have even needed to get some out myself. However, no one has ever asked me about hops, especially just after a beer has been brewed.

You see, I have these raw denim shorts, when we brew beer, and I've had to clean the brewing kettle yesterday. So I got a lot of dirty hops water on them yesterday, but they seem to have handled that pretty well. No stains this morning. I have washed them once already, so the shrinking has been taken care of. All in all, not too bad.
