How do you remove noise putty from clothes?
By Holly from Syracuse, NY
Holly, have lake-effect blizzards robbed your brain? You not using language familiar to the rest of us. So, ha ha.
Noise putty is sold as Flarp. When you squish it in its container it makes the sound of someone passing gas so it is popular with kids who enjoy bathroom humor. My granddaughter's navy blue school uniform shirt is soaking in vinegar now. I am hoping that it works as well for me as it did for others. I can understand how the language "noise putty" would seem strange to anyone unfamiliar with the product! :-)
Thank you, thank you! Vinegar worked like a charm. I didn't have white vinegar so I tried apple cider and that did the trick!
My grandson fell asleep on top of a bottle of Flarp, and his body heat made it expand, and it got all over my couch cushion,( I removed the cushion cover) quilt, and a fuzzy animal blanket, and his nite shit. I soaked all of the spots with white vinegar, for a few minutes, and then used an abrasive scrubber pad and it all rubbed off. Then I washed them all in a heavy duty load with cold water, and you can't even tell the explosion happened.
** TIP on putting the cushion cover back on your cushion; cover the cushion with a piece of cotton fabric, like an old sheet.(make sure it is just one layer of fabric) Then the cover will just slide right on.

How do I remove Flarp from a towel/clothing?
You could try freezing the clothing item and then scraping it off. Finish by using stain remover (if needed) and wash in warm or hot soapy water in the washer. My daughter got something like this on a flowered t-shirt material skirt and it worked for me. Good luck! (09/05/2007)
Wow, that can be a mess. My friend had Flarp (or something exactly like it, maybe generic brand) stuck to the back seat carpet in her vehicle. Then, it dried. It was like an "almost" hard, waxy, smashed into the floor, mess. It wasn't solid, but wasn't removable by hand either.
We used "Spot Shot", and it got it right up. I was totally amazed!
I make Flarp, Floam and Slime for my kids. I have found it easy to get the sticky goo out of everything by pouring white vinegar over it and letting it soak for awhile. The vinegar dissolves the goo and makes it easier to clean up. For small spots, I soak a cotton ball in vinegar and set it over the stain. Hope this helps! (10/27/2007)
Vinegar works! It loosened and dissolved the Flarp to the point where I could just spray it away! Thanks so much for the brilliant comment. (12/17/2007)
Try putting ice cubes in a bag and making it cold (not wet) and scraping it off. It worked for us when we got it on the couch. (12/22/2009)
I cannot thank you enough for the information about using vinegar on Flarp (farting noise putty). My granddaughter put some of it into her clothes and I just couldn't get it out. Logged on, found this thing about vinegar and tried it. I was amazed at how fast it dissolved the Flarp. It was a miracle and saved her clothing. Thanks again. (05/21/2010)
