How do I remove PLAY-DOH compound from carpet, upholstery or fabric?

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.


Good Luck!

Thanks, John.
We'd already checked the Hasbro site and it proved accurate. The blue-green Playdoh was (we were told) dropped onto the sisal rug, danced on then rolled up 3-4 years ago and forgotten. We laid it out with the loops sort-of opened up and scrubbed with a toothbrush and little metal tool to mechanically dislodge the particles of dry Playdoh. After vacuuming, one really has to know where to look and then get on hands and knees to see some of it down next to the backing below the loops. Darn near a miracle.
