Hang it on a clothesline and brush off the stains with your hand or a brush.
Handle gently, being careful not to ruin the fabric of the clothing.

STEP 2: Soak and wash

After brushing off as much dirt as possible, the next step is soaking and washing.
Put laundry detergent in lukewarm water around 40 degrees and let it soak for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
By soaking the fabric, the dertergent will go deep down into the fibers, to break down the stains mixed with sebum.

STEP 3: Rinse

If the dirt still remains even after soaking, use a bar soap to wash it.
Gently rub the bar soap into the fibers.
Apply from various directions to clean out the stains from the clothes.

STEP 4: Put it in the washing machine

By now, most of the stubborn dirt should be gone.
After rinsing thoroughly, wash as usual in the washing machine.
Hang it to dry in the sun, and it should return to it's original look.

Two ways to remove mud stains from children's clothes [tricks]


Mud stains on children's clothes can sometimes be removed with an unexpected item.
If you use these tricks, you may be able to remove it more cleanly than detergent, so it may be good to remember.

Trick 1: Use a glue stick

A glue stick is actually an useful item for removing dirt.
It's easy to use, just apply the glue stick to the areas where the dirt stands out, leave it for a few minutes, and then put it in the washing machine.
The adhesive component in the glue stick will harden the dirt and make it easier to remove.

Trick 2: Use facial cleanser

We also recommend using a facial cleansing scrub.
You can also rub this into your clothes and put it in the washing machine to remove dirt.
The scrub in the face wash acts as an abrasive, making it easier to remove dirt.
