how to clean slime on carpets

Slime is a fun activity for kids, whether you buy it or make it, but it is not fun when it makes a mess of your clothing, furniture, and carpeting. Most slime is made with glue, so it can make quite a sticky mess when it ends up in the wrong place. Read on to learn how to clean slime on carpets.

How to Clean Slime on Carpets

What you’ll need:

  • Vinegar
  • Warm water
  • A soft brush (like a toothbrush)
  • Clean towel

Step one: Get up as much of the slime as you can using your fingers. Do not rub it into the carpet.

Step two: Make a solution of 2/3 vinegar and 1/3 warm water in a bowl.

Step three: Pour some of the vinegar and water solution over the slime on your carpeting. Use the soft brush to work the solution into the slime. You should use a circular motion to protect the fibers of the carpet.

Step four: Use the clean towel to dry the carpet as much as possible. If there is still slime left, repeat step three. Continue working it with the brush and solution then drying until all of the slime is gone.

Step five: Once dry, vacuum the carpeting in case any dry pieces are left over.
