We'll begin with a few hints that directly relate to today's Wordle answer, but don't give it away immediately.

  • Hint 1: This word is defined as being covered with dirt. It's an adjective that's a direct synonym for "dirty" or "filthy."
  • Hint 2: This word has two vowels, one near the start of the word and one at the end. The vowel at the end is only considered a vowel some of the time. The word has no repeating letters. The word starts with "m."

If those hints weren't enough to get the ball rolling for you, then you can keep reading for the full answer to the Wordle. The full answer to the January 19 Wordle is... "mucky."
