How to Remove Mud StainsPosted by Guarantee Green Team on October 11th, 2012
Mud and dirt are common stains for sporty families, but knowing how to take care of mud and dirt stains on your clothes will keep a little mud from turning into a big mess. If treated properly, mud and dirt will come right off of clothes instead of becoming an unsightly and permanent stain.
Start by allowing wet mud stains to dry. Rubbing wet mud stains will spread the mud and work it deep into the fabric, causing a permanent stain. Wait instead for the mud to dry, and then use a plastic knife to gently scrape off dried mud.
Once you’ve scraped off as much dried dirt as possible, treat the area with a drop of regular liquid dish soap. Wet the area and then use a toothbrush to scrub the area well on both sides of the fabric. Rinse the area well, and then repeat the process until the stain is completely removed.
Wash the clothes in the laundry as normal, but do not put them in the dryer until you’re sure that the stain is completely gone. If you see a little of the stain left over, just repeat the cleaning process and wash again.
Getting mud stains out of laundry is so easy, you’ll never worry about getting dirty outdoors again.
