Homemade slime is a gloopy variation of playdough and silly putty, easily made from common household ingredients. What kind will you and the kids dream up? You can make plain colours in either pastel or bright tones, add glitter for a sparkle effect, or mix colours for unicorn, rainbow or other multi-tone variations. This method makes a ball of flexible slime close to silly putty in texture.
It stays clean in your hands, making it a good choice for little kids. If you want your slime gloopier and more stringy, see the troubleshooter below.
Add the bicarbonate of soda and mix well. Add a drop or two of your chosen gel food colouring. Mix until well incorporated. Add the contact lens solution and mix.
The slime will begin to form, going stringy before coming away clean from the bowl into a ball. Once it has formed, take it out and knead it with your hands. Add glitter at this point, if desired, and work in with your hands. Store in a pot with a lid. Here are some tips for your science experiments. Try adding less than 1 tsp contact lens solution, mixing it in drop by drop until it just goes stringy and begins to come away from the bowl. Then knead. You can double or triple the quantities in the recipe.
My slime is too sticky, even after kneading.Somehow the crafters have figured out how to turn glue, borax, and food coloring into something that kids can have hours of fun with. The recent slime craze at one point even made glue pretty hard to find in storesper Parents. Fortunately, it is possible to replace the glue and borax in your slime recipe using other household ingredients.
If you are looking for a slime recipe that is as pliable and, well, slimy as the good stuff, there are plenty of safe options out there. Here are 5 safe slime recipes to try. YouTuber JellyRainbow uses baby powder, shampoo, and baby oil to create the base for this ooey gooey no-glue slime. Just watching the video is satisfying enough, but getting to play with some soft, nice-smelling slime is infinitely better.
Usually, when moms mix bananas and flour together, the result is something suitable for a bake sale, but this banana slime recipe from the Bon Slime Channel on YouTube is a delicious take on ordinary slime. Pour hand soap into a bowl and just add a little bit a salt at a time until you get the desired slimy consistency.
Too much salt will actually make it turn watery, the video warns. Refrigerate for 15 minutes and add the food coloring of your choice. If you can't decide on one color, add them all.
Toothpaste isn't just for keeping your teeth clean anymore. Now you can turn toothpaste into slime with the help of a little salt and cornstarch or flour thanks to this alternative recipe from YouTuber Anita Stories. Again, just a tiny bit of salt goes a long way and you get to massage, massage, massage this satisfying mixture until it reaches the desired consistency.
Add a drop of food coloring if you wish to make it a specific hue. The great thing about this video is that the viewer gets some helpful slime tips along the way.
For example, if you want non-dyed slime to clear up as it may turn white from all the bubbles mixed into itset it in an airtight container by the window for a few days.
Some recipes call for the most basic household essentials hand soap, shampoo, baking soda, and saltwhile others require some more unique ingredients like pectin or sprinkles made from guar gum powder, so choose what works for you. No matter what your reason is for seeking a no-glue, no-borax slime recipe, these safe options will smell nice and leave you and your little ones feeling satisfied.

Mango Icecream Bar (Cloud Dough Slime)
The fun part about making slime is experimenting with different amounts to see how the slime forms. If you want to make sure your slime turns out — be sure to read the instructions carefully.
The type of contact lens solution you need and glue is very important! Substituting these ingredients for other brands may result in your slime not working. We also do not recommend substituting the brands we recommend.I really wasn't sure what to expect with this slime.
I was super weary about the whole garlic bread thing but omg did this girl NAIL it! I could play with this for hours and the texture is amazing. This is the first time I've tried this slime shop and bravo! I love it!!! Has a wonderful texture, inflates a ton, and smells like roasted marshmallows. I would definitely purchase from them again. The consistency is awesome and so fun to play with.
This specific one I gave to my mom for her to try out. Got this for my 16 year old son that suffers from anxiety, he loves the natural oils in it and the consistency of the slime. He asked if he could take it school to help him, he is very anxious there. Love it!

This works! I was doing homework I couldn't focus. I got this because I know I procrastinate a lot. I recommend A LOT!
Easy UK slime recipe!
I have purchased around 30 slimes or so from this shop since I have discovered it, and this is BY far my favorite slime. When I received it, I was so excited to play with it. It has a super nice smell, though it is sour like sour candy smell wise and that's perfect for someone like me who loves stuff like this.
Super fun texturewas super fun to mix slowly as well, which I recommend with this slime. Also would say go for the bigger container, I wish I had and plan to buy the biggest version eventually!
I bought this for my eleven-year-old daughter. All of her friends went crazy over it. Now we are shopping for more slimes for her friends. Great gift! The packaging is so nice and aesthetic and the slimes are high quality and definitely best slime shop out there. The smell of this slime is out of this world. On top of that, I got this for my eleven year old daughter and I couldn't hand it over to her because I loved it so much!
She has a ton of slime, and I never understood what the draw was It is the perfect addictive consistency. I can't believe I'm saying this, but it really is amazing slime! I knew this slime would smell good due to the amount it was raved about. I once was playing with it and was asked if I actually had garlic bread in the oven!! So totally looking forward to delving more into the Slime Fantasies slime collection. Not just for the amazing scents but for the great variety of textures as well!Our newest slime offerings can be seen here!
Slime Rodeo This slime was so amazing!! SuperNova is a perfect name!! Oh and absolutely No fall out! I just love it! Looking forward to trying out some more slimes from DopeSlimes! You guys are awesome! Pink is my fave color, and the shade of this putty is amazing.
This one was so fun to do and smells amazing! One of my favorites to play with. Absolutely wonderful slime! The scent is perfect and smells amazing! The texture is sooo much fun to play with, nice and crunchy. But the texture is incredible, the slime is so stretchy and spreadable, super inflatable, too.
Scent is like cinnamony-honey-bread and it is a super soft, creamy, and inflatable butter slime! I can see why it's a bestseller. Would highly recommend! I like slimes, but not as much as putty. I have a bunch of dopeslime's slime, and they're great.
But the putty is out of this world - I prefer firm, nonsticky putties to soft sticky slimes, so putty is perfect for me. The color is amazing. It starts out a deep purple with holographic star glitter, and after being manipulated goes to a metallic purple grey and finally a bright metallic silver. If you squeeze it once its silver, purple iridescence shows up where the pressure is applied.
Its beautiful. Let it rest for a few hours, and its back to its original dark purple color. Its fun to pop, stretch and tear! My only complaint is you dont get much compared to the smallest slime, and theres no option for larger sizes. I'd happily pay a little extra to get 5 or 6 oz, 3 oz is a little small for anyone but a young child. I wish I could give it 10 stars! It's one of our favs! We have ordered several.
