Before I knew it this morning, Play-Doh was being ground into my carpet (red, of course!). I hope once it dries it will come up but it's so ground in it really just looks like a red stain as opposed to Play-Doh itself. Any ideas?

I would try letting it dry and then vacuuming/scraping it out of the carpet. If that doesn't work I'd call the manufacturer and see if they have any ideas.

We have that problem all the time
I usually use oxyclean dissolved in hot water and a lot of scrubbing.
Good luck

I vacuum twice, once while its is not yet quite dry and then again when it is dry, I then pick out the bits that are left behind with my fingers. Never have had to wash it out.
My carpeting seems to be very easy to get it out of, so much so that I dont care if dd plays with playdoh in the living room.
