Introduction: 3 Ingredient Slime (No Borax)

Hello fellow makers! Today I will be showing you how to make this Slime.

Please vote for this in the 3 ingredient contest! It would mean a lot to me!


Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

Ingredients:

Liquid Detergent (Any Detergent with perfume will not work)

White Elmer's Glue

Food Dye (I used icing dye because that's what I had)

Tools:

A 1/4 of a cup measuring cup

Something to stir with (The toothpicks)

Something to stir in

Optional:

An air-tight container

Ok lets go!

Step 2: Adding the Glue and Detergant

Time to start!
First measure 1/4 of a cup of glue and pour it into the bowl. Now add a bit of Detergent. Start stirring the mixture together. After a bit you want to add your food coloring and stir that in as well. While stirring it check the consistency with your finger to see if it is to sticky. If it is too sticky add some more detergent. Continue stirring and adding detergent until you have the consistency you want.

Step 3: FAIL!

Everything was going well as it seems. After stirring it enough and checking the consistency you have to knead it to mix it more. Apparently knead doesn't mean squish in your hands. That caused the slime to stick all over my hands. I didn't feel like starting over so if this happens attempt to put as much as you can back in the container and put in some more detergent in until the right consistency.

Step 4: Kneading and Finishing It Up

After the fail I put it back into the bowl, added more detergent and boom. The slime was starting to actually feel like slime. Once you are able to put it in your hands without it sticking everywhere start kneading it. (Not squishing it) Roll it around in your hands. If it is still a little bit sticky you can dip your finger in the detergent and rub it around it. If you want the slime to be a bit darker you can make a little bowl in the middle and add coloring in it. Then after that you can knead it in.

Step 5: Finished!

Yay! You have successfully completed this magic slime! Now you can knead it and play with it.

If this didn't work it was probably the detergent you used because not all of them work.

Also if you have a container you could place it in there. See you later!

author
ilovekoalas (author)TommyJ122015-12-27

1/4 of a cup of Glue
Not an excact amount of Liquid Startch It just depends on the consistency you want and a few drops of food coloring

Just tried the liquid starch and it was a major fail. We used Niagara liquid, not Sta-Flo because Sta-Flo was not in the store. I do not recommend the Niagara liquid starch.

can you use something else besides glue

author

I don't think so... Not in this recipe.

author

can you use any type of white glue?

author

as long as it contains PVA, clear also works

author

I think so but I don't know. Tell me if you try it! :)

author

I don't think so... Not in this recipe.

I've made slime with dish soap and baking soda, and glue and salt, dish soap and salt, and a couple of other recipes. There is no borax in Korea.

author

how did you do the dish soap and salt one? I'm interested... ?

author

Hi- this will only work for some types of dish soap, if it doesnt work try with a different type of dish soap. So just take your soap and add a bit of salt, until it thickens. then put it in the fridge

author

so you take the dish soap and add a tiny bit of salt until it starts to thicken. dont add to much- then it will turn back to liquid... after that, out it in the freezer or 2-10 minutes depending on the amount of slime you made. then when you take it out, it should be holdable/touchable

author

Thanks, I'll try that???

There is borax in this slime and I think that detergent isn't the best thing to use ether.

author
ilovekoalas (author)Emilymtz172016-10-16

I still have my slime still and it is still a bit soft. The only way to keep it soft is to put it in an airtight container. I used a play dough cup which is airtight. Also thanks for making this :D

It's probably really helpful that most laundry detergents contain ... borax!

author
ilovekoalas (author)westfw2015-12-27

Well most people have liquid detergent, not a box of borax. Thanks for telling me though

author
jlathem56 (author)2015-12-07

how much detergent do you start out adding? a few drops, 1/8 cup, 1/4 cup?

author
ilovekoalas (author)jlathem562015-12-27

Depends on the consistency you want

author
tyler roberts (author)2015-12-23

so why all the recipes for no borax slime? are people having trouble finding borox? does it cause problems?
