In a homogeneous mixture the components are spread evenly throughout one another and any two random sample of the mixture will be identical.

In a heterogeneous mixture the components remain separated into "phases" and the composition of the mixture varies throughout.

For example, in muddy water the soil particles remain distinct from the water.

In a homogenous mixture, the different components are not readily discernible. In a heterogeneous mixture, they can be seen and sometime separate of their own accord. For example, oil and water is heterogeneous, while salt and water are homogenous.
