How To Get Slime Out of Carpet
We recently decided to redo my daughters' room and came across a HUGE mess on one of the rugs in her room. Sometime (evidently long, long ago!) there was a slime spill that didn't get cleaned up. We found this rather large pile of slime…. nicely caked right onto the rug.
Instead of throwing the rug out, I decided to do some digging and see if there was an easy solution to getting the slime out. I knew that vinegar worked well for slime spills if the slime was still damp, but I wanted to see if there was also a way how to get slime out of carpet if it had hardened.
I grabbed my vinegar, a cloth, warm water, and a butter knife and decided to get to work …… and to my surprise, we were able to save the rug!
If you're finding yourself in a similar situation (although I hope not!), here are the ingredients you need and the steps to take to get slime out of your carpet with simple ingredients.
Ingredients Needed To Get Slime Out of Carpet
If there's a good thing about having slime in your carpet, it's that the ingredients that you need to get it OUT are very inexpensive and you likely already have them on hand.
Here's everything you need:
Vinegar (at least 2/3 of a cup)
Warm Water (1/3 of a cup)
Cup (Preferably a larger size – but coffee cup size will work)
Towel (I used one of these microfiber towels)
Knife (I just used a butter knife)
Simply mix the vinegar and warm water together, and then gather up your supplies and head to the slime stain.
How to Get Slime Out of Carpet
The process to get slime out is roughly the same regardless of if it has already hardened or if it is still damp. There's just an added step if the slime has hardened.
First off – if you have hardened slime, you're going to need to get as much as possible off the carpet. Ours was a pretty large area (about the size of my hand), so I just used a butter knife to chip away at the pieces, being careful not to damage the rug underneath.
Once you've got the hardened slime off the carpet (or if you're dealing with a new spill, you've gotten most of the pieces of slime off the floor), you'll want to slowly pour some of the water / vinegar mixture onto the area that had the slime on it. You don't want to SOAK the ground, but make sure that you've got enough to make the area damp. You can always add more if you need.
Then you'll want to take your towel and gently blot at the stain. DON'T RUB! If you rub it will make the slime set into the carpet. Do this and rinse your towel as needed in the water / vinegar mixture until it appears your slime stain is gone.
Once the carpet has dried, go ahead an vacuum any additional small pieces that might be on your rug, and then you're done!
