I’ve noticed that I’ve actually had people who have come upon my blog looking for ways to get playdough out of their carpet….
So, after a bit of research, the best suggestion I’ve come across is from the professionals, Hasbro, who makes the brand name “Play-Doh”:
“When attempting to remove PLAY-DOH compound do NOT use hot water or cleaning solutions of any kind. To remove PLAY-DOH compound from carpet or fabrics, allow it to dry completely, and then loosen with a stiff brush. It may be necessary to vacuum clean or wash with gentle soap and cold water. You may need to repeat the process in order to completely remove the PLAY-DOH compound.”
The only thing I would add from other people is that often there is a color stain left in the carpet. Treat with a stain treater, such as Shout or something similar, let it sit, and then see if it will come out. Hopefully this will work!
