How to get Flarp out of carpet

How to get Flarp out of carpet. “Flarp” is a squishy, sometimes permanent substance that kids and grown-ups alike can use for noise making.

Sometimes, it comes off the carpet in pieces and at other times it comes up with new carpet fibers along with it.

If you’re feeling brave – or perhaps have nothing to lose – then here is one method for getting Flarp out of your carpet.

Get rid of the Flarp by rubbing an ice cube against it on the carpet. To get rid of excess Flarp, use a butter knife (or similar) to pull out the Flarp from your carpet.

Spray some adhesive remover onto a clean white cloth, then rub the stain until it’s gone. This will get rid of any residual Flarp.

Freeze to get rid of the Flarp

Freeze the Flarp with an ice cube, then rub it with a butter knife or pull out hard chunks of Flarp using tweezers.

If there are still small, soft spots of Flarp lingering in gaps between carpet fibers, create a poultice by adding olive oil to warm water and spread this mixture over those sections of carpet.

Allow the mixture to sit overnight and the runny parts will absorb into the carpet while the solid bits will be easy to scrape away in the morning.

Alternatively, fill a spray jar with hot water, white vinegar, and dish soap. Pumping action will agitate any remaining residue-free from your carpets after which you can blot up excess fluids with a clean cloth and dry finish with another.

Remove the remaining Flarp

Use a cotton ball to blot at Flarp until the stain dissipates from your carpet.

If you’re using vodka or white vinegar, blot the carpet with either of those instead of rubbing alcohol when treating Flarp.

Take care not to saturate the carpet with either option because these liquids can seep back into your carpeting and create additional damage.

If applying this mixture seems to be unnecessary then simply use a clean cloth or paper towel to blot up the ground-in Flarp.

Continue blotting until the bead of Flarp is gone but do not apply any more cleaning solution than necessary in order to prevent an oversaturation of your rug while trying to remove this flaky resin that’s stuck inside it.

Rinse your carpet

Remove Flarp by using a clean, wet rag to gently rub away any noticeable residue. Do not overdo it or you risk pushing the Flarp further into the fibers of your carpet and having to remove even more carpet to get it out.

Blot the carpet with a dry rag to soak up excess moisture. Allow the carpet to dry naturally.

Use an oil-based liquid

To clean up the Flarp, whip out your oil-based solvent. Spray it onto the affected area. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes and then wipe away any remaining marks with a wet rag.

Repeat this process until the Flarp is completely gone and the carpet is left spotless! Don’t forget to dry off those shoes before coming back inside and tracking anything else into the house.

Use WD-40

Besides an oil-based solvent, we also recommend you the WD-40. There are a number of advantages to using this product as well.

One of which is that it will loosen up and free any sticky residue left over from a putty stain on your rug’s fabric.

This means that it becomes much easier to pull the stain out completely instead of leaving some residual texture behind.
