Well not SHIT help. But SHIT! HELP! FAST!

Sapphire just tracked mud on our carpet.

Rachel is still sleeping. She will FREAK if she sees it.

How do I get it out? We have some type of carpet cleaner but I don't know if I should just spray it on and vacuum or if I have to scrub or what. The directions have a label (ours) over it.

HELP. 

Don't approve of gay marriage? Don't get one! But I want to marry my soul mate!!

Pick up what is loose, then scrub! Then vacuum. 

ETA make sure you get it fairly dry before you vacuum.  You dont want to suck up a river of muddy cleaner lol

If you have a steam cleaner that would work well

is it really wet still or kinda dry? if its fairly dry try vacuuming first to get most of it up then use the carpet cleaner. if its really wet blot with a towel first.

usually you have to scrub it a little. You might try putting some baking soda on the mud to dry it out and then vacuuming.  Good Luck

A good stiff brush or toothbrush will help loosen the mud so you can remove all of it. If you don't have carpet cleaner, try a touch of laundry detergent or dish soap.

Is it wet or dry?

If its dry you should be able to just vaccuum it up, if its wet try to get up what you can then scrub it, let dry then vaccuum.
