The dirt will compact over time and poor maintenance. I find this procdure works: drag it flat and even, then soak it with water until it is wet several inches down, this may take several applications depending on how hard it is. Now wait until it becomes just damp ( the dirt is workable when damp but not soaked )and using a drag with 3" spikes ( a 12x12 piece of wood works) break up the dirt by dragging it over and over until you have a uniform 3" loose soil distribution over the whole area and drag it again ( with a normal drag mat )until smooth and wet it normally. try to keep the infield from drying out completely from now on. Soil conditionor, or field topping can be used to help also.

I was homeless for 5 yrs. Taking a bath is not getting the dirt all off. How can you clean hard to get out dirt from your body?

Realize that you are physically clean, what you are trying to get rid of is the emotional and mental dirt from having been homeless. Since you say you were homeless, past tense, you must not be now. It is in the past, can not hurt you and you have to let it go. Learn from whatever caused you to be homeless and move on. It does not have to control you.
