Hi, I'm Ann Myrick, and today I'm going to show you how to remove mud from carpet. When dogs or the kids come in, and they get mud in an area of your carpet, the best thing to do, if you time, is to just leave it alone and let it dry. Once it dries, it becomes powder. And what you can do is get a little brush and kind of brush it a little bit lightly and loosen it up, and then just take your vacuum cleaner, and go over the carpet, and get all the loose dirt, get all the loose dirt up. And if you see, sometimes you'll have a little bit of a brown stain, so once you get all the extra dirt and particles up, if you need to take a little wet cloth and a brush, and go down and just add a little bit more attention to it and get the spot up. And that is how you clean mud off carpet. This is Ann Myrick, thanks.
