Hi there!

If I want to say that someone has made himself dirty with mud, paints, glue, ink, milk, mustard, pasta, etc., what verb can I use? Instead of 'make oneself dirty'

    Look up "soiled" in a thesaurus. As sound shift said, there are lots of possibilities.

    Soiled is a general term. There are specific terms that might be more appropriate like "muddied", "wet with...", "food covered..." etc.
