I’ve been letting my daughter play with a lot of slime lately while I try to get things done and relax a little. I make sure she doesn’t have good clothes on, sits on a towel in the tiled bathroom with a hard mat for the slime so she can play inside and it’s pretty stress-free however she has come and hugged me after playing today and gotten some slime on me.. How do I get this stuff off my clothing? She’s got it on her clothes before and I’ve never been able to get it out which is why now she has ‘clothes for slime’.

  • Slime and I are not friends. Vinegar can work.

  • White vinegar will become your best friend. Pour onto slime and let it sink in for 5 mins. Scrub scrub scrub, rinse then wash.

  • eucalptus oil or vinegar to remove the bulk, then scrub with old toothbrush. Then soak with stain spray . Finally wash, but not hot – I honestly think heat can fix the stain into the fabric rather than remove it. But that’s only based on my experience, others may say different.

  • Ice it, put the clothing in the freezer and it should peel off, don’t rub it!

  • I’ve found Napisan is great for just about every stain. The spray and the soak when used together…..don’t leave much behind

  • I have heard that plain white vinegar can remove the slime. Another thought is salt.

  • Hot water soak in Orange power. The slime needs to get hot to melt away. Had this issue with carpet

  • I have a love hate relationship with slime. It was supposed to be used at the table! I’ve had it on the carpet, throw rugs and the ones that didn’t come out easily had glue in them and lots of colouring. I had a bit of luck with Eucalyptus oil and Aldi stain remover pre- spray.

  • Try vinegar . That should do the trick.

  • I would definitely use hot water and my go to stain remover is Omo Ultimate. Also depending on fabric if I’m really desperate I’ll use boiling water to soak- that’ll often get things out. A good sunny day will often sort the rest out with sun bleaching.

  • White vinegar and an old toothbrush!
    Let the vinegar soak for a couple of seconds then brush with the old toothbrush. It should come out quite quickly.

  • I’d try a hot wash, otherwise ask on the clean cloth nappy Facebook page – they’re cleaning gurus!

  • White vinegar will dissolve slime. Scrape off as much of the slime as you can apply vinegar on the stained, wait for 10 minutes. Use a toothbrush to scrub off any stubborn lime is left, wash as usual. I have used dishwashing detergent and a cup of vinegar in the wash to take off the oily residue.

  • I have good expriences with Eucalyptus oil for slime and chewing gum.
