The toothpaste is basically the activator so u would need to add more toothpaste!

can u make two slime for me please

do you have to use colgate or can you use aquafresh

That's good that people go out of their way to find other ways to make slime besides borax and glue, contact solution and glue, etc. Does it work with only gel toothpaste? Thanks!~

I haven't tried yet but it seems to work. I ran out of glue...:)

But I'm trying gel elmers glue bottle, because my toothepaste is not gel

Yes! This is the easiest slime recipe, and I have both ingredients!

It's easy to make and easy to get the ingredients!

(If this helps, you can use any toothpaste or any PVA glue)
As I'm in the UK, I don't think there is elmers glue here and in other countries as well, so just use any old PVA glue, it should work.

I'm not too sure but I think you can use any type of PVA glue :)

please awnser

How long do you have to wait from adding glue to being able to play with it? (ie. do you have to wait for the glue to dry a bit?)

Is it non toxic? LIke if kids go to taste it, will they continue to eat it?

In australia we dont have Elmars glue. Have you tried basic PVA glue and does it work (i believe Elmars is similar).

You just play with it when it doesn't stick to your hand
For playing only..not editable.
I can try with regular glue in another project. :)
