Tips to Remove Mud Stains from Clothes: Dark & Bright Colours
Removing mud stains from clothes that are dark, like blue jeans is so simple – if you’ve failed to remove mud from your dark clothes in the past, it’s probably because you’ve been taking the wrong approach. In general, we should tackle the stains quickly before they dry, so that the stain remains on the surface of the clothing rather than soaking in. For mud, we should do the opposite, Before attempting to remove the mud stains we should leave them to dry. This is because if we try to deal with wet mud it will spread the stain and possibly grind it into the fabric fibers & make it impossible to get rid of the stain. Instead, what we want is for the stain to remain on the surface and we can gently scrape off
Step 1 : If the mud stain is wet then allow the mud to dry completely.This shouldn’t take too long. DO NOT attempt to wipe away the wet mud as this will spread the stain
Step 2 : once the mud is dry gently scrape it off with spoon, being careful not to grind the dirt into the fabric.
Step 3 : Apply some liquid detergent into the stain and allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes or until the stain disappears. Lightly rub the stained area between your fingers every two to five minutes to loosen the stain.
Step 4 : If traces of the mud stain still remains on the cloth, apply a stain remover gel, stick or spray and let it stand for 5-10 minutes.
