Removing Mud & Soil Stains - Handy Tips

If you don't have a Vanish stain removal product on hand then don't worry. We're still able to provide some handy hints on removing stains. Vanish will help you remove the stains even once they have dried-in.

  • Let the mud dry thoroughly; do not attempt to wipe off the mud. It will only smear the stain onto more of the clothing.
