How To Remove Slime From Your Clothing

Leave a comment

Slime is fun to make and play with until it accidentally gets stuck onto your or your kids’ clothes and you’re left with a slime stain that seems impossible to take out. Fortunately, removing a slime stain is easier than you think. 

How To Remove Slime From Your Clothing

There are 2 ways in which you can effectively remove slime from your clothing:

  • Ice 
  • Vinegar

Before using either of the slime removal methods, make sure to remove and scrape off as much slime as possible.

Ice

Take some ice cubes and place it on the remaining slime to completely freeze. Once it is completely frozen, scrape off the slime as much as possible without using much force before pre-treating it with laundry detergent. After letting the detergent sit for 10 minutes, soak the clothing in hot water for about 30 mins before washing as normal.

Vinegar

Pour distilled white vinegar on the stain and scrub the vinegar into the slime using a toothbrush. If the stain is tough, allow the stain to soak in vinegar for up to 5 mins before scrubbing. Once you’ve gotten rid of the slime, rinse the garment in warm water, with dish soap if you wish, to remove any residue, before washing as normal.
