Q: I’m a new football mom. After this weekend’s game, my son’s pants are caked in mud.  How do I get them clean?

A: The first thing to do is let the mud dry.  Then, scrape it off and rinse the pants thoroughly with cold water.  Next, spray the area with foam shaving cream and let it stand 20 minutes.  Blot the area with a paper towel or rag and repeat if needed.  Wash as usual.
