Oh, no! While creating a mold of your penis you've accidentally spilled some of the alginate molding gel on the floor. How should you clean it up? It all depends on what kind of floor you’re dealing with...
HARD FLOORS (Vinyls, laminates, hardwoods, linoleum, tile):
Cleanup is simple. The alginate will easily peel off of any smooth surface. Before it completely hardens, just pull it up. On a hard floor it'll come up as a single piece, completely and without trouble. For softer, more porous wood floors, it’s just as easy to pull away the spill, but you may want to wipe down the area with a damp cloth afterward to ensure it's completely clean.
A carpet spill is much trickier. The alginate molding powder in your Clone-A-Willy Kit is sterile and won’t stain the fibers in your carpet, but it will adhere itself to the fibers. The longer it’s left to dry, the harder it will be to remove. Try to get the spill cleaned up before it dries completely, but don’t attempt to clean it up while it’s still a liquid - you’ll just scrub it in deeper and make it worse. Let it gel first (minimum 4 minutes), then use a dull knife to pick out the alginate from the area. It may take a bit of time, but it will come out.
If you’re trying to remove the spill after it’s already completely hardened, add a few tablespoons of trisodium phosphate to a cup of hot water and pour it over the area first. Let it sit for 20-30 minutes to soften things up, then follow the steps above. Again, it can be a bit tricky to get every little piece out, but once it has been removed from the fibers there should be no stain or mark left behind whatsoever.
Avoid the use of Alkali detergents or alcohol-based cleaning detergents, as they may permanently discolor the area.
