Introduction: Fluffy Slime Without Borax Diy

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

it did not work for me I left it be for 2 hours but when it opened it was wet and clumpy and not sticky at all I thought I did it all right so what could I have done wrong? This is what it looks like

could you do it without eye drops?

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!

You can do it without eye drops but you will have to use borax instead.

did i do it wrong, 'cause mine is sticky.

author
Igioteno made it! (author)Igioteno2017-02-19

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.

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.

author
SophieV10 made it! (author)SophieV102017-05-17

Really anything with boric or borax word in in it works x

AWESOME CHEMICAL IDEA!!!! WE CAN MIX OTHER COMPOUNDS TO SEE THE CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL REACTIONS... LOL!!!

This was really easy to make! For lighter color, experiment with different amounts of food coloring.

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.

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.

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!

If it is not forming, leave the unformed slime in a container for a few hours and it will form into slime
