I don’t know who invented slime, but I sure see people asking a lot of questions about how to remove slime from absolutely everything from their carpet, to their clothing, their hair, the couch, to car upholstery, and more!
The easiest way to remove dried slime from your carpet is with a solution of white vinegar and water. First use a table knife or spoon to gently scrape away as much of the dried slime as you can.
Mix 2/3 cup white vinegar with 1/3 cup water. Use a stiff scrub brush to work the mixture into the carpet. The slime should start to soften and break loose.
Wipe the area with a clean dry towel. Repeat the above process if there is any slime remaining in the carpet. After the carpet is dry you can vacuum to pick up any remaining dried bits and pieces of slime.
How to Get Slime Out of Carpet Without Vinegar
If you are looking for a method of removing slime from carpet that does not involve using vinegar, then give rubbing alcohol a try. Pour the rubbing alcohol directly on the affected area and scrub with a scrub brush. Rinse with a wet cloth. Let dry completely and then vacuum.
WD-40 can also be used in the place of vinegar and can be applied directly to the stain. Just make sure when using either the rubbing alcohol or the WD-40 that you test a small inconspicuous area first to make sure it does not discolor your carpet.
