Slime. This has to be one of the most trendy DIY’s out there today. The girls love it… and lets be honest its even fun to play with it as an adult. There are so many variations of slime. I didn’t realize how big of a thing this was until I went on Youtube… holy smokes. SLIME.
I could probably host an entire blog on just slime… but that would bore me. So here is what I found to be the easiest recipe for slime with out having to buy a ton of ingredients, it also makes a pretty good slime consistency!!
You will need the following:
- – Glue – clear or white works
- – Baking Soda
- – Contact Solution – must contain these 2 ingredients boric acid, sodium borate
Pour that glue into the bowl. We did not measure any ingredients. The amount of glue you use is the amount of slime going to be produced.
This step is OPTIONAL, but if you want your slime to have a little more body I HIGHLY recommend it. Add shaving cream. I would say only use about 1/2 the amount of shaving cream as there is glue. Once again, no measurements just guesstimate.
This is also a good time to add any scented essential oils to your mix! One – Two drops is plenty!
This step is technically OPTIONAL, but slime wouldn’t be as much fun if it didn’t have color. Add your color now!
This is where you are going to sprinkle in some Baking Soda, mix. Then add in the contact solution.
You want to make sure when adding the contact solution, you do this slowly. Squirt. Mix. Squirt Mix. Repeat until it binds up into slime. If you add to much, your slime will break easily and not be stretchy.
Tada! It is now time to play with slime!
Yes that simple.
