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. THANK YOU!!! My 6 year old just got slime all over his pants, couch and carpet I was a nervous wreck! Found your pin and grabbed my white vinegar and VIOLA… it came off with EASE!! Thank you so much!

  2. so I spilled a bunch of PURPLE, yes purple slime on my carpet and it was a huge mess! First I used hydrogen peroxide and it worked but not that much, then when I used the vinegar, get this, it turned blue!!! Like wow!!!! But then after scrubbing for a few minutes, totally going away!! Such a good hack! Definitely recommend for people like me who are stupid!!!

  3. I got this, but It explosed In my Backpaxk. Will It still work if I use Vingaer?
    also Would It ever come out!!??

  4. Distilled white vinegar took the slime out of the carpet right away! It really does work well! It saved my carpet! Thank you!

  5. Anyone do the slime bath and get a stopped drain…because we did! Wondering if I need to call a plumber or if the vinegar could work to unclog….

  6. My 12 year old daughter just called me on a panic because some friend of hers at school was playing with slime in class and got it in my daughters hair. She called me crying because she couldn’t get it out. Do you think vinegar would work in hair too??? I don’t know if I should pick her up from school now or wait until she gets out of school…

  7. Oh wow… my daughter was in tears when her homemade slime dried on her lifelong stuffed animal, and carpet. And there was a lot! It was a solid caked layer that would hardly bend, I started to use apple cider vinegar but ran out and had to use regular vinegar. Both worked perfect after working it in. Using a dry paper towel helped as well once it was loose.

  8. Thank you daughter got it all over carpet worked like a charm thought for sure I was going to have a pink stain forever!

  9. We had homemade slime (made from blue food coloring, glitter, shaving cream, glue and detergent) dry in a large clump on a towel in the dryer. It is now very hard and rubbery. Do you have any ideas on how to get it out? It’s on a towel she earned in Girl Scouts and is very special.

  10. I woke up the other day and my sister slime got stuck in my bed sheet I don’t want my mom to find out and I get in trouble for the slime to get out can I do the steps of the carpet

  11. So my sister stored all her homemade slime at my house and it got on the carpet and that was about 4 months ago. Basically I’m going to test this method and if it works (on super old dried slimes I will comment on it to let you all know)

  12. Thankyou!! You just saved my daughters electric blanket….tomorrow I will dissolve the dried slime remains that I hid by moving the couch….

  13. I had to do slime removal this morning, after my daughters party yesterday. This worked perfectly!!! I didn’t think it was going to come out at all, especially because it was blue! But you can’t even tell where the slime was!

    • This did work on my butcher block countertop. My son left some green slime on it and I didn’t realize it until the next morning. It had dried so I tried it and it worked. I tested a little on the back corner that can easily be hidden if it made the wood change color. Luckily, it did not!
      I would definitely test it in an area of the wood that can be hidden or not seen first!

  14. I got slime all over my grandmas cloth couch and I didnt tell her and im gonna secretly clean it up thank you sooo much
