5 Ways to Encourage Your Kids to Get Filthy (and Why it’s Not a Problem)
If you have kids like me, I’d bet you’re no stranger to filth! You know– dirt, muck, grime, sludge, slime and ooze? It’s sort of part of the package when you have kiddos. My son likes playing sports and getting filthy is just part of the deal.
Here he is with his coach and the end of a basketball game, sporting some good sweat/slime/ooze.
And here he is with some good old soccer filth. He’s got some good sludge going here. Not looking real happy in this photo!
Sometimes the filth is totally intentional– like last Halloween when he decided to dress up like a zombie and smeared dirt (and who knows what else) all over himself.
And before you start thinking his little sister is “cleaner”… check out this photo. Rolling around in decomposing leaves is a great way to get filthy!
Here’s the great news– it’s OK for kids to get filthy, because Maytag laundry‘s new Top Loader Washer and Dryer can handle whatever filth our family doles out!

Getting filthy is a natural part of baseball and of childhood. Here are some deliciously dirty ways kids can get filthy this summer.
5 Ways to Encourage Your Kids to Get Filthy this Summer
1. Go to the beach and play in the sand… with clothes on instead of a bathing suit.
2. Run through the sprinklers (don’t worry about it when the ground gets all muddy… that’s part of the fun)!
3. Take a “hike” through the woods and collect a ton of natural treasures.
4. Go out for ice cream, get a double scoop and when the clerk asks how many napkins say “NONE, thank you.”
5. Hop on your bikes and pedal around the neighborhood park. Be sure to go through as much freshly cut grass as possible.
