Pour vinegar on slime. If slime is already dried out let the vinegar soak for a few minutes until the slime has softened. Wipe with a towel and like magic…it’s gone!

  1. Oh. My. Gosh. This was literally like MAGIC! Fluorescent yellow slime on my moms fancy living room carpet. My 4 year old daughter was in big trouble (as much as one can be with grandparents-haha). It came out right away with hardly any scrubbing! Thank you!

  2. I have slime on my leased vehicle arm rest-the inner part. How do I remove it from there? It’s dried solid and I need to get it removed before my fiancé sees it or the dealership. Please help me. If I use the vinegar how do u remove the smell?

    • I HATE the smell of vinegar! If it is something I can wash in the washing machine, I wash it…obviously you cannot wash your arm rest so I would try to wipe with some type of cleaner. Maybe dish soap or Resolve? ALWAYS test a small area that cannot be seen first to be sure the fabric is okay.

    • The smell of vinegar tends to dissipate with time. If it’s too much, put open box(or container) of baking soda in the car.

    • Any luck removing the slime? I’m in the same situation. My daughter brought slime home in a ziplock bag and left it in the 3rd row seat cup holder. It literally melted back there for 1 week in the summer heat. When she found it again she tried to pick the ziplock bag up to take it out of the car and the slime just continued to ooze all over the seat and floor of my car 😩

  3. My granddaughter got a very thick amount of slime on my carpet and I put vinager and water mixture on it but it’s so hard it won’t soften up ! Should I leave over night? And straight vinager.?

  4. OMG this worked miracles. I had a very THICK large area that had soaked and dried for months deep into the carpet fibers. Poured vinegar on for maybe 15 minutes and used a plastic scraper… scraped away effortlessly!

  5. Please help I took the trash out and my daughters old container with black slime leaked all downstairs on the pavement in my condo complex how can I remove it off the concrete… please help :)))

    • I hope it works my kids are crazy about slime and I’m okay with it but it sometimes it can get a little messy with the slime

  6. You could certainly see your enthusiasm in the work you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart.

  7. Yes my son bought it home from school and it is everywhere. I am in trouble though cannot precisely see exactly what I did wrong. Anyway I hope this will work and there has been some very positive feedback.

  8. Thank you! This saved my daughter’s hand knitted blanket! I was at my wit’s end trying to figure out how I was going to save it!

  9. who invented this evil/fun stuff? My grandaughter took her pink slime, put it in her teen cousins black addidas sneaker, then put her foot in it, so it is mushed all the way to the toe….I sure hope the vinegar works! AAAAARGH . ( still love her though)
