Tips On Cleaning Muddy Footprints From A Carpet
Cleaning up muddy footprints from a carpet is not the end of the world, but it can be somewhat of a chore too, depending upon the extent of the tracks.
On suggestion is to sprinkle cornstarch on the area where the mud is tracked on the carpet. Let everything dry. Once that occurs, vacuum up the cornstarch.
Or use the same technique, only sprinkle baking soda on the muddy footprints and let everything dry. Once the area has dried, vacuum up the dirt and then clean up any left over stains with a spot cleaner. If you try to clean up mud when it is wet, it really doesn’t work too well, as it just spreads the mud around and makes things worse.
