In a perfect world, we'd be able to dash down to the local department store to buy new clothes for our kids each time they ruined their clothing from playing outside. In reality, we know how expensive it is to replace clothes, so we wash and mend them until they're beyond repair, or until we outgrow them. Because of its dark color and ability to cling to fabrics, one of the most difficult materials to remove from clothing is dirt – especially wet and muddy dirt. And, as if removing the dirt isn't enough, mud can leave behind a stain to remind you of how it got there in the first place.
So, how do you remove dirt and mud from clothing? Follow these guidelines to have your clothes dirt- and mud-free in no time:
Once you're satisfied that the mud and dirt are gone from the fabric, wash the garment in a regular wash cycle, using cold water. Remove the garment from the washer and check for stains. If they are gone, it is safe to dry the garment. If you cannot remove the stains, check with your local dry cleaner for solutions.
