Mud stains are easy to come by. Whether you’ve been playing in the park with the kids, or just got back from a football match, mud streaks can appear anywhere. Don’t worry about it, though. Just read our step-by-step guide below, and learn how to get mud stains out of clothes in 1 go.
How to remove tough mud stains
Don’t wait until it’s dryIt’s easier to remove fresh mud stains, so whenever possible don’t wait until the mud on your clothes dries.
Remove excessIf your clothes are heavily stained with mud, you can get rid of any excess mud by hand or by rinsing the garments with warm water to avoid excess mud depositing on the drum.
Put the POD in the drumGetting rid of soil from your clothes has never been easier. Since Ariel PODS are pre-measured, there is no need to measure or pour out laundry detergent, which makes it easier when it comes to dosing. All you need to do is simply place the washing capsule at the bottom of the drum before adding your clothes to the washing machine. Use one POD for medium soiled clothes or loads of 4-5 Kg, and two PODS for heavily soiled clothes, loads over 5KG or hard water areas.
Close the box and keep out of reach of childrenIt is important to always close the Ariel PODS packs with a “Click-Clack” and keep washing capsules out of reach and away from children.
Don’t overload your washing machinePlace the clothes into the washing machine and on top of the washing capsule. In case your clothes are heavily soiled, make sure you don’t overload your machine by leaving at least two palms-worth of space.
WashSelect the appropriate wash cycle, based on the garments’ fabric care labels. Ariel PODS have been designed to deliver an outstanding clean, even on cold and quick cycles. However, if your clothes are heavily stained a higher temperature and a longer cycle can also help.
UnloadTake the clean clothes out of the drum immediately after the wash has finished for best results. Make sure the outside of the drum is clean before unloading your clothes: mud can sometimes deposit outside of the drum and stain your clothes again.
Effective stain removal on many stains
Now you know how to get mud out of clothes, you may need to remove some of the other stains that can come with mud. Cutting your knee while playing football can leave blood stains behind, but you still want to keep white clothes looking bright: a grey football kit is no good when your team is all in white. Luckily, Ariel deals with blood just as easily as mud, and dingy whites are waiting to turn bright again.
