We’re talking about actual dirt. Multiple former Playmates have spoken out and said that the Mansion was not up to code cleanliness-wise, but that they were still forced to live there.

Not only did the house smell terrible, but the mattresses were reportedly never cleaned. Some girls would even replace their bedding with their own cash.
