3. How to get slime out of clothes without vinegar
White vinegar is great for both new and old slime stains. If you have not already tried vinegar cleaning, then we recommend starting with this method.
Be careful; white vinegar is a good dye. Before working with him, check if he can damage other things that lie nearby.
Pour white vinegar directly to the spot (you can use a measuring jug).
It is necessary to apply it only to the spot. Do not wholly wet clothes with vinegar. Leave the stain with vinegar for a while.
Gently rub the stain with a cleaning brush or toothbrush. With neat circular movements so as not to damage the fabric.
For thin cloth, we recommend blot the garment with a cleaning cloth or paper towel.
Rinse your clothes with warm water to remove vinegar and slime residues.
If there is no more stain left, send the thing to the washing machine, following the washing instructions.
If there are remains of slime on the clothes, then repeat the actions with vinegar a few times.

Be careful acetone has the property of discoloring tissues. Before you start cleaning with acetone, check on a small piece of tissue.
For slime that has been made with glue, acetone (found in some nail varnish removers) might work well. Pour the acetone on cotton wool and wet the stain concretely. Then send the clothes to the washing machine.
6. How to get slime out of clothes after washing
