Mud Play (どろんこ)! Clothes cleaning tip


Hello!!! This is MAY in a short post!

Today I would like to share something that helped me a lot.
It started the season of playing in the mud (どろんこ)at my son’s daycare. Playing in the mud has many benefits for children, from improving their immune system to their eyesight. However, I could not ignore the fact that the clothes used become almost unrecognizable.
The first day, I unsuspectingly put on a “good” outfit, and of course, the t-shirt came back all dirty with mud. As a newbie mom, I have learned that mud does not come off easily from clothes. Did you know that?

I soaked for two days in “Oxi Clean” powder (until then, for me, this powder was miraculous!!! Like a magic powder to clean clothes). I scrubbed it and put it in the washing machine. Not much came out.
So I was giving up on this shirt when I read in several Japanese blogs that this bar soap (figure below) was recommended to get the mud off. The name is ウタマロ(utamaro).

Bar soap indicated to remove mud from clothes.

I decided to test it and was surprised! I got almost all of it out! Maybe all of it would have come off if I had washed it the day it came dirty!

Before and After

Test it!!! Best of all, one bar cost me less than ¥100.
