As a pet owner, you know that when the snow starts to melt and the snowfall turns into spring showers, it’s inevitable that you’ll have muddy paws trailing around your home. Instead of spending several minutes wiping their paws with a towel or giving them a quick bath, TikTok users discovered a $21 gadget on Amazon that cleans mud from paws in seconds.
A video by @melissametrano went viral last year for showing up MudBuster Portable Dog Paw Washer, racking up over a million likes. Plus, it’s super easy to use; all you have to do is fill it with warm water, place your dog’s paw inside, rub and twist. The little silicone bristles do all the dirty work for you and you don’t have to worry about water splashing all over the place. Once you are done cleaning the first paw, simply pat it dry with a towel and move on to the others.
The MudBuster is available in small, medium, and large sizes to fit all breeds, regardless of the size of their paws. You also have the option of ordering the device with a cover, which is useful for cleaning muddy paws on the go. The cup, retaining ring, and bristles come apart and are dishwasher safe, which also makes the gadget easy to clean.
The dog paw cleaner continues to circulate on TikTok with several viral videos and it’s an Amazon bestseller that’s currently on sale for just $21. As hot weather becomes more frequent, it’s only a matter of time before the gadget becomes a must-have for dog owners, so consider adding one to your cart before it runs out.

An Amazon shopper who called it “the best thing ever” also wrote that the MudBuster “works like a charm” for their doodles and terrier-schnauzer mix who love to dig, but don’t like having their paws touched. Another five star reviewer said it was “worth every penny” and posted a video showing how quick and easy it is to use, even on dirt-encrusted paws.
