How do you get slime out of car seats?

My kids love slime. I was cleaning out the backseat this afternoon and realized they got it all over the seats. How do I get it out?

Kids are notoriously messy, so it’s no surprise you’ve discovered a secret mess. Luckily, you should be able to get the slime off your seats.
To get rid of the slime, or any
similar substance
, follow these steps:
  • Before cleaning, remove as much slime as you can. Take a spoon and try and scoop it up. If dry, you can also use a butter knife, scraper, or similar item to scrape it off.
  • Now place ice cubes on the spot to harden any remaining slime.
  • Once it chills, use a tool again to scrape.
  • When you’ve removed it, soak cotton balls with rubbing alcohol and blot the stained area. Continue this process until the stain is removed.
  • If you still notice a stain, you can try to clean your seats with an upholstery cleaner or take your car to a detailer. They often have professional supplies that can remove even the toughest stains.
  • Finally, vacuum the affected area and you should be slime free!
