I already knew you could use white vinegar to get sweat stains out of white clothes. Basically after washing the clothes, you rinse them and then soak them in water with some vinegar, and it takes the yellow sweat stain out. Your clothes end up smelling like a salad, but no more stain.
So the other day I tried something else. Sometimes I use handkerchiefs or bandannas to blow my nose. And I hand wash most of my laundry, only getting a machine for large items like comforters. But hand washing a snot rag is annoying, I do them separately because you have to scrub this slimy thing for like 5 or 10 minutes to get the slime off, and I don't want it getting on the other laundry. YUK.
So on a brain wave the other day I tried soaking this one snot rag in vinegar water after cleaning it with the usual detergent.
EUREKA! It worked like a charm! No more slime! And pretty much in only an hour of soaking. And vinegar is relatively cheap, if you buy the basic stuff by the gallon.
HOORAY NO MORE SLIME!
