PRO TIP - Send them to Grandma’s for a slime playdate! She loves that kind of thing!!

How to clean slime?! Ohhhh slime…..every kid loves it, every parent cringes at the very sound of it! It gets everywhere – floors, walls, clothes, the dog, the cat – you name it! After a fun slime playdate, you just never know where it might turn up!

But we are parents. We love our kids (well most of the time anyway ;0), so we want them to have fun! Unfortunately, fun sometimes includes slime! So, we search the internet for the best slime recipe we can find and then we diligently make it so our kids can then slowly cover our houses in it! Isn’t being a parent awesome?!

So when slime has firmly attached itself to the couch or the curtains, just how do you go about removing it in the easiest and least damaging way? One word for you – white distilled vinegar ok, 3 words, but who’s counting?!!!

If you follow my blog posts at all, you know that I am a huge fan of white distilled vinegar and all the wonderful things it can do. Everything from removing hard water stains to cleaning blinds, to you guessed it, removing slime from your furniture!

Cleaning Slime from Fabric

1. Remove as much of the excess slime as possible.

You can do this using something like a butter knife that will remove the slime without damaging the fabric. A putty knife is another great choice. Just run it gently along the surface of the fabric scraping off as much slime as you can.

OOM keep calm and slime on

2. Pour white distilled vinegar onto the slime spot

Be careful not to oversaturate the area. You want enough to sink into the surface of the fabric, but not enough so that it will take days to dry out. Let the distilled vinegar soak for about 5 minutes to give it a chance to loosen up any slime that may be embedded in the weave of the fabric.

3. Rub in a circular motion

After 5 minutes, take a toothbrush (preferably not your wife’s – if that’s just too tempting, maybe choose one of these scrub brushes instead!) and rub the spot in a circular motion until you notice the slime coming out.

4. Rinse

Using hot water, rinse the area and let it dry. You may be able to speed this up a bit by using a hairdryer but only use a cool setting. You don’t want to burn the fabric!

Kids will be kids – they will keep making messes and we will keep cleaning up after them! Some days it can be totally frustrating – especially when your ceiling mysteriously  gets slime all over it! But honestly, would you have it any other way? I know I sure wouldn’t!
