Do you need to know how to get the mud stain out of your blue jeans? If you are anything like the rest of the people out there, you will inevitably get mud on your jeans. The problem is that mud is very dark and can leave a mark once it is ground into the denim. Not a problem, it comes out.
What you need to get mud stains out of blue jeans:
- Heavy detergent or liquid soap
- Hot water
- Don't rub the mud into your jeans. The first thing you naturally try to do is wipe the mud off your jeans. Well, don't do that. What you are actually doing is rubbing the mud deeper into the fabric of your blue jeans and that is what will cause the stain. Just leave the mud alone and let it dry.
- Brush the dry mud off. Once the mud has dried on the denim, get a toothbrush. Brush off all of the mud that you can. This will release all the chunks and most of the mud that didn't get a chance to grind itself into the fabric. Now shake off any excess dirt from your blue jeans.
- Get some soap. Choose a strong detergent or liquid soap. Most laundry detergents or dish soaps will do the job. Pour the soap directly on the mud stain. Add a few drops of water and scrub the stain with your toothbrush. Don't be afraid of being too rough on your blue jeans. Denim is heavy duty fabric and can handle getting a little beat up.
- Rinse out the soap. Under running hot water, scrub the soap out with your toothbrush. Continue doing this until you see no more stain. This should do the trick and will probably be your last step in removing a mud stain.
- Soak your blue jeans. If you still see a mark where the mud was, you will have to soak your blue jeans to lift the rest of the stain. Fill up the sink with hot water. Hot water will help to dissolve the dirt. Soak your blue jeans in the hot water for about ten minutes.
- Using your hands rub the stain loose. Put some soap on the stain. About every five to ten minutes, rub the stained area together with your hands to loosen the dirt. This will lift most of the stain. You may have to continue to put soap on the mud stain each time you rub the fabric together. Continue doing this until the mud is gone.
- Wash your blue jeans. Now that you have pre-treated and removed the stain, you can wash your blue jeans as usual. Washing the denim in the washing machine on a heavy cycle will remove the rest of the mud that may have penetrated into the fabric. Congratulations!
