Picture of 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

Add in food coloring for color

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

Turned out GREAT!!

Agiel (author)2017-09-29

I did this and it went really runny, did anyone else's baking powder go weird when they added the eye drops?

Evilswift71 (author)2017-04-14

If you add lotion, how much will you need??

Two tablespoons of it

tootsierol123 (author)2017-09-17

Thanks for the recipe! I tried it with a full cup of shaving cream and it worked out great!

22lydiawhitman (author)2017-02-09

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!

SophieV10 (author)MadisonT162017-05-17

Ya the shaving cream makes it smell clean

tootsierol123 (author)SophieV102017-09-17

And fluffy :3

tyanne.gill (author)MadisonT162017-04-01

Nola99 (author)22lydiawhitman2017-03-30

you can make eye drops with a tsp of salt and a cup of boiling water

Cheetahgirl9905 (author)Nola992017-04-04

thank you for that

Igioteno (author)22lydiawhitman2017-02-18

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

Witch_Demigod made it! (author)2017-09-05

After adding some other things, It worked

what is the other stuff

fendicheung2010 (author)2017-09-09

try adding hand soap

fendicheung2010 (author)2017-09-09

Try with tons of food colouring

EmmaRules9 made it! (author)2017-06-17

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

AmyG141 (author)2017-04-15

It didn't work for me so I'll try again in the morning

slimegirl6129 (author)AmyG1412017-06-11

it did not work

slimegirl6129 (author)2017-06-11

that did NOT help.

MuggleBornHufflepuff (author)2017-05-25

can you make it with salt water instead of eye drops?

awesomegymnast3 (author)2017-02-19

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

Igioteno (author)awesomegymnast32017-02-19

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.

Ckinney5 (author)Igioteno2017-03-12

Can I use paint instead of food colouring because I doing have food colouring

SophieV10 (author)Ckinney52017-05-17

No paint is probably a bad idea

Kai XuanY (author)Igioteno2017-04-19

Doesn't the container have to be airtight?

AnitaL22 (author)2017-04-30

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.

SophieV10 (author)AnitaL222017-05-17

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


HamiltonFan412 made it! (author)2017-05-06

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

GaryV15 (author)2017-05-01

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.

JamieS17 (author)2017-05-01

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.

jfuredy (author)JamieS172017-05-01

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!

Ltwhtdove9 (author)2017-04-20

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?

Zoe❤️❤️❤️ (author)2017-04-29

I thought I needed contact solution. Not eye wash. ?

AmeliaS28 (author)2017-04-18

farrington2014linds (author)2017-04-16

Reynoldsbri870 (author)2017-04-07

surreals (author)Reynoldsbri8702017-04-07

Reynoldsbri870 (author)surreals2017-04-11


2580062 (author)2017-04-06

SmolCh1ld (author)2017-03-25

JacquelineT27 (author)SmolCh1ld2017-03-26

You can add lotion to make it stretchy.

Ckinney5 (author)2017-03-12
