How to Get Flarp Out of Clothes & Carpet

Flarp is a fun novelty toy that can cause some sticky situations in the house. It is the silly putty that you can make into a ball, or put it flat on the table and make farting noises with your hand over it. Kids love this stuff.

Trouble comes when Flarp gets stuck in your clothes or carpet. You’ll want to get Flarp out of your carpet ASAP, so it doesn’t leave a permanent stain. 

How to Get Flarp Out of Clothes

Here’s what you should do:

What is flarp?

Flarp is a silicone polymer that contains petroleum products and air. When you knead it, it farts, and it stinks. It’s the silly putty that you can throw like a ball or play within your hands, but it’s not so much fun when it’s stuck on your carpet.

How to Get Flarp Out of Clothes

Step 1: Freeze to Get the Flarp Out

Freezing the Flarp is great because it causes the Flarp to harden, which makes it easier to remove from your clothes later on.

If you have a Flarp stain on your clothes, first, put them in the freezer for 15 – 20 minutes. If you’re working on a larger item like blankets, apply the ice or ice pack to the Flarp and wait for it to harden.

The freezing water causes the Flarpy bits to contract and harden into one big piece of junk that can be removed from fabrics more easily.

Step 2: Scrape Off The Flarp

Once the Flarp is frozen, the next step is to scrape as much of the frozen Flarp as you can. The best way to remove Flarp is to scrape it off with a blunt knife. You can also use a credit card to scrape up small pieces of Flarp.

Use just enough pressure to scrape off the Flarp, but not so much that you damage your garment.

Repeat the process until you have removed all of the Flarp. If you have a large amount of Flarp to remove, work in layers and re-freeze each one after scraping it off.

Step 3: Treat The Garment With Stain Remover

Put dish soap and water into a bowl and soak your clothes in it for 15 minutes.

Dump out the water, then put in one cup of white vinegar and two cups of hot water, place your clothing back into the bowl, and let sit for 30 minutes.

When that doesn’t do the trick, try using a cotton ball soaked in alcohol and rub gently.

Step 4: Rinse and Dry

Then rinse the area with cold water. Then let your garment air dry instead of using the dryer to see if the stain will be completely removed. Repeat until the stain is gone.

How to Get Flarp Out of Carpet

 It is important to remove Flarp from your carpet as soon as possible. The longer Flarp stays on your carpet, the harder it will be to remove.

The good news is that Flarp stains are typically easy to remove with a few simple tools and household ingredients. Follow these steps to remove the stain completely:

Removing Flarp from Carpet with Freezing 

First, you have to remove as much of the Flarp from the carpet as possible. The best way to do this is by using something like a scraper. 

Next, you need to grab some ice out of the freezer and put it on the Flarp. Remove the frozen Flarp and scrape it off with a butter knife or scraper. If there are still some stubborn Flarp stains left.

Rinse with a mixture of liquid washing soap and water.

Using Vinegar to Remove Flarp from Carpet

Get a spray bottle and fill it halfway with vinegar. Spray the carpet area that has the Flarp stain on it. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

Get a clean, soft cloth and blot up the vinegar. The Flarp should now be loosened up and you can easily remove it with this method without damaging your carpet. If not, repeat the process until it does come off the carpet.

Next, use your vacuum to suck up all the excess liquid. You should also rinse the area with some cold water and blot up as much liquid as you can. If you don’t have a steam cleaner, you can use your regular vacuum cleaner. It won’t hurt it at all.

Using Hydrogen Peroxide to get Flarp out of Carpet

Treating the stain immediately with hydrogen peroxide will help you get rid of the Flarp without causing any further damage.

Blotting the stain with a cloth immediately after the spill will prevent it from penetrating the fibers. 

However, if you have already let it dry in your carpet, try these steps to remove it.

You need to first use a clean cloth to blot up as much of the liquid from the Flarp stain as possible.

Pour some hydrogen peroxide onto the stain, spread it evenly over the entire affected area, and let it sit for about 15 minutes.

You can then blot up as much liquid with another clean cloth until all that remains is the now dried-up Flarp stain.

Finally, vacuum up the area. The Flarp stain should now be gone from your carpet.
