Knowing how to get slime out of fabric upholstery starts by getting as much slime off the fabric as possible. Work the slime up and away (even pulling the fabric up) to avoid pushing it deeper into the woven threads.
- Remove as much of the slime as possible by hand, but don’t
- Mix 2/3 cup white vinegar with 1/3 water in a spray bottle and spray the white vinegar formula liberally and let it soak in.
- Use a soft brush to gently work your cleaning solution into the fabric.
- To get rid of the vinegar odor, use plain water and a clean cloth and scrub the area.

For a more industrial solution
If product has dried, place a moist towel over the spot and place an iron on low over the towel and allow slime to heat up and absorb the water. Goof Off® Pro Strength Remover can also be used. Follow the directions exactly as specified (on carpeting and fabric, be sure to test for color fastness on the material in a small, inconspicuous area first). There may be some residual dye stain, which should be removable with fabric spot and stain removers.
How to Remove Slime from Walls
While it is easy enough to scrape slime from a hard surface, the dyes still may leave a lasting impression. Mix a paste of baking soda and water with a small amount of vinegar. Dab the paste directly on top of the stain and let dry. Protect your floor with towels and wipe up any drips right away. Once the paste is dry, brush off with a paper towel.
If the slime has dried, mix a little mild detergent and water in a bowl. Skim the suds off the surface onto a cloth and wash the slime off the wall. If you need more cleaning power, use a natural all-purpose cleaner or a magic eraser.
Slime from hair:
Mayonnaise works well in removing these types of product from hair. Use approximately 1/4 cup, massage over/on the putty and comb out gently. Wash with shampoo and rinse (as normal).

The grow item is not working, what can I do?
Grow items can display varied results due to water quality, room temperature, sanitary hands and water container.
- Use distilled water (if the quality of your tap water is poor).
- Make sure the water is at room temperature or slightly warmer. Water that is too hot will often cause disintegration before growing can occur.
- Change the water every day for the first few days.
- Make sure your hands are clean when you touch the growing creatures. Dirty hands can cause bacteria to grow in the water.
What’s the grow item made of?
Our grow items are made from high density EVA foam with lesser amount of sodium polyacrylate as an absorber. These will expand after putting them into water for several days and will shrink back up from air once removed from the water. Results will be different based on multiple variants.
