HOW TO REMOVE DIRT STAINS
Dirt and mud stains come from the best kind of moments - splashing in a puddle, working in the garden, a dog being excited to see you, or sliding headfirst into home plate. But it's not the best moment when you go to do laundry and realize you need to figure out how to get those dirt stains out of your clothes.
Removing a stain depends on two factors: the soil and how it interacts with the material it ends up on. Mud and dirt stains are combination stains because they're made up of more than one element. On top of all that, dirt particles are small enough to make their way into the fabric fibers and ingrain themselves into the material, rather than sit on the surface.
You've got a tough stain to tackle, but you don't need to use potentially dangerous chemicals to get the job done. Depending on the type of fabric you're treating, both bleach and hydrogen peroxide can potentially damage or discolor non-white clothes. Ammonia can also permanently set the stain, as well as release harmful fumes which can result in dangerous chemical reactions. Products such as dish soap, white vinegar and rubbing alcohol might not work hard enough to restore clothes to their original color.
