A mud stain is one of the messiest and most noticeable stains a white carpet can get. Removing a wet mud stain is relatively simple; however, there are some specific steps that must be followed to avoid making the stain worse. Treating wet mud with the proper tools is necessary to preserve the crisp look of a white carpet. The steps below will instruct you on how to clean wet mud out of white carpet.


  1. How to Clean Wet Mud Out of White Carpet

    • 1
      Use a fork to scoop away loose mud from the carpet. Only remove mud from the top layer. Do not use a fork to dig mud from the carpet as this will cause the mud to sink deeper into the carpet fibers. Allow the remaining mud to dry completely.

      Vacuum over the mud stain. When the mud is dry, a vacuum will be able to suck up large particles of dried mud and dirt that remain in the carpet. Vacuum the area several times, changing directions each time. Changing directions will help loosen dirt particles from the carpet fibers.
      3 Use a soft nylon brush to brush the dried mud toward the surface of the rug. Vacuum the area. Continue this cycle until the dried mud no longer rises to the surface.

  • 4Pour a small amount of laundry detergent on the mud stain. Use a damp towel to gently rub detergent into the carpet. Rinse the towel with warm water, and continue to gently rub the area until the mud is removed. Use a dry towel to blot the area until it is completely dry.
  • 5If mud is still visible, combine 1 part water and 2 parts white vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray mud stain and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Use a damp towel to blot the area. Repeat this cycle until all mud is removed. Gently blot the area with a dry towel until it is completely dry.
