This week, we’ll help you get rid of pesky mud stains.


Mud is never beautiful. Except possibly when they use it to make those fancy mud tshirts in Hawaii. Here’s our simple, 5-step process for removing mud stains from your carpets.


  1. Gently vacuum up any dry surface mud with the hose of a vacuum, as to not grind it into the carpet.
  2. Sprinkle baking soda, cornstarch, baby powder or other absorbent onto the stain and let stand at least an hour before vacuuming again
  3. Apply a dry-cleaning solvent, such as rubbing alcohol, acetone, mineral spirits or a commercial cleaner to the back of a clean cloth and blot gently, working from the edges of the stain to the center until stain disappears
  4. Blot the carpet with a dry sponge or cloth until the liquid is absorbed,
  5. Make sure the area is well ventilated until the carpet is fully dry
