2. Brush off Excess: Once the mud is dry, use a soft-bristled brush or a spoon to gently brush off as much of the dried mud as possible. Be careful not to grind the mud further into the fabric.

3. Pre-Treat: Apply a pre-treatment solution to the stained area. Mix a tablespoon of

with water to create a paste. Apply the solution directly to the stain and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.

4. Wash: After pre-treating the stain, wash the clothing item as usual, using the hottest water temperature that is safe for the fabric

5. Check Before Drying: Before drying, check to ensure that the stain is completely gone. If any traces of the mud remain, repeat the pre-treatment and laundering process.

6. Air Dry: Once the stain is fully removed, air dry your item. Avoid using a dryer until you are certain the stain is gone, as heat from the dryer can set the stain further.

7. Check Care Label: Always refer to the care label on the clothing item for specific instructions regarding washing and drying to avoid damaging the fabric.

With these steps, you should be able to effectively remove mud stains from clothing.
