Ever since I saw fluffy slime on YouTube, I wanted to make them
But the recipe needed borax and where I live it is very hard to find
So I used my substitute for borax in my instructable for no borax or starch slime
This makes a great gift for kids and is very inexpensive to make
This recipe for slime uses ingredients you already have at you home
This slime is fluffy and feels like marshmallow cream but is still like slime

Step 1: Materials

Liquid glue

Shaving cream or liquid foaming soap

Eye wash or eye drops

Baking soda

Food color

Step 2: Steps

Get your small bowl and add in a tablespoon of baking soda
Next add in just enough eye wash until the baking soda is covered
Swirl around your bowl until the eye wash and baking soda are combined
Next get a separate bowl and add in half a cup of glue and half a cup of shaving cream
Add in food coloring for color
Fold together the glue and shaving cream until combined
Add in the eye wash solution and mix until a putty forms
Knead the slime for about three minutes and leave in a contained shut
After about an hour or two, the slime will be ready to play with
To store, put in a plastic bag or container

Step 3: Results

This is a very easy fluffy slime that feels like marshmallow cream
This is a great slime to give out as gifts and is very inexpensive to make
It is also very quick and easy to make
All using ingredients you can find at your home
<p>could you do it without eye drops?</p>
<p>No the eye drops are what form the slime. You can also add some lotion to make it smell good and it will be more stretchy. It is the best slime I have made yet!</p>
Ya the shaving cream makes it smell clean
Same I love it that I have ever made this is fun
<p>you can make eye drops with a tsp of salt and a cup of boiling water</p>
<p>thank you for that </p>
<p>You can do it without eye drops but you will have to use borax instead.</p>
<p>did i do it wrong, 'cause mine is sticky.</p>
<p>No, you did not do it wrong. The trick is to leave the sticky slime in a closed continer for a few hours before playing.</p>
Can I use paint instead of food colouring because I doing have food colouring
No paint is probably a bad idea
Doesn't the container have to be airtight?
If the eye wash you use is made with boric acid (they commonly are) it is closely related to borax and is what is making the slime.
Really anything with boric or borax word in in it works x
<p>AWESOME CHEMICAL IDEA!!!! WE CAN MIX OTHER COMPOUNDS TO SEE THE CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL REACTIONS... LOL!!!</p>
This was really easy to make! For lighter color, experiment with different amounts of food coloring.
<p>Perhaps there are too many variables. Please give the brand name of the shaving creme and eye lotion, or their list of ingredients. This way people can pick the one in their community that most closely matches yours. If people try shaving creme with menthol or eucalyptus, or shay butter, or silicone, there are going to be other reactions that might prove to be detrimental for the slime to set-up properly. Science works because the experiment can be duplicated by anyone similarly equipped, for the same effect. This requires the same chemicals, the same procedures, and if possible here, the same measurements.</p>
Try 1/2 gallon glue, several cans of foaming shaving cream and mix it all usin a drill with a mixer head (beater, whatever its called). Added some contact solution, not sure how much but it wasn't a lot. Left covered air tight for a couple hours. Poured half in one garbage bag and half in another garbage bag. Layed one bag in botton of shipping box, layed glass items i was shipping on top of first bag and let the glass ware settle a little then placed second bag on top and let it settle. Shipped fragile items safely with nothing broken when it reached its destination.
<p>That's an interesting idea for shipment packing. But it's also going to be pretty expensive because that is a very heavy packing material!</p>
It turned out real slimmy no putty can you please help me out to let me know what i did wrong? I used 1 /2 cup glue 1/2 cup shaving cream andvthen the eye sloution
Maybe you forgot the baking soda?
I thought I needed contact solution. Not eye wash. ?
<p>what else can you use instead of glue</p>
Can you use saline solution
It didn't work for me so I'll try again in the morning
<p>If you add lotion, how much will you need??</p>
<p>what kind of paint acrylic or water color or what?</p>
<p>Any liquid paint, water colors won't work though</p>
<p>thanks</p>
<p>You don't have to use that stuff if any questions just ask it on the comment and say this is to you 2580062 at the end of you comment i have a different thing but it still makes slime</p>
<p>help, mine is still liquid after 12+ hours??</p>
<p>it is really wet how do I fix that. What if I add loiptin.</p>
<p>I made the slime, but is there any way to make it stretchy? What can I do?</p>
You can add lotion to make it stretchy.
Can I please put paint in instead of food colouring because I don't have food colouring
<p>yes you can</p>
<p>I made it but it came out looking like cream cheese. Any way to make it smooth? Did I do it wrong?</p>
Ours is to sticky and liquid what should we do?
<p>mine came out more like way to soft shaving cream.it is also sticky, but i cut the recipe in 1/4. i kept it in a container over night but didn't work. What should I do? </p>
<p>Mine is not forming did I do something wrong?</p>
<p>If it is not forming, leave the unformed slime in a container for a few hours and it will form into slime</p>
<p>Are there any certain measurements for this recipe? How do u know how much of something to put in?</p>
<p>Is mine supposed to be sticky?</p>
Mine got very soapy and greasy like is there a way to fix it?
My slime is more like shaving cream and goo had a baby... am I the only one that got this wrong?
<p>Actually mine turned out like that at first but the trick is to leave it to rest in a container for a few hours until playing.</p>
<p>can you make it less sticky and was it supposed to be sticky or did I mess up</p>
<p>Mine turned out sticky at first but you have to leave it in a container for a few hours and it will no longer be sticky. </p>
HappyA mine is very sticky
<p>Can you use clear glue, and will it also work with shaving gel?</p>
