I’m sure you have been staying home safe like the rest of us. I’m also sure you are keeping the kids busy with craft project after craft project, throwing them yet another snack, or sending them outside to play. Seriously, everything they are doing right now has the potential to get messy. Paint spills, mud tracked in, popsicles melted on the floor, the messy possibilities are endless.
The kids really do need these added activities right now to keep them busy. However, I find that my children manage to turn the cleanest activity into a messy one! Is there anything that these kids haven’t tried to destroy the carpets with? Okay, so they haven’t actually tried to do it on purpose, but sometimes I wonder. It used to stress me out whenever I saw a new mess, but now that I have learned how to clean up those stay at home messes, it’s not such a big deal.
Clean Up Those Stay at Home Messes
Let’s talk about the best ways to clean some of the common stay at home messes we are dealing with lately. I don’t know about you, but I have personally cleaned up all of these messes in the last two weeks, and figured you might need a refresher on how to clean them up too.
What is the best way to remove mud from carpet?
When the kids track mud into the house and onto the carpet, have no fear! You can fix it! Here are the steps to follow to clean this the best:

What is the Best Way to Remove Spilled Kool-Aid or Melted Popsicles from Carpet?
You’ll find that with most carpet messes, the cleanup process remains very similar. That being said, when the kids spill Kool-Aid, or drop a popsicle on the carpet, make sure to ACT FAST!
- With a clean, light-colored rag or towel and blot up as much of the wet spill that you can. Do not scrub, or further rub in the stain.
