This slime is stretchy and has sort of a fluffy texture to it my kids love
This recipe is easy to make and you probably already have the materials in your home
You could also personalize it any way you want be adding different colors or glitter

Step 2: Steps

Picture of Steps

For however much glue you want into one bowl. However much will you add that is how much slime you will get in the end. Next add in your food color. Mix until the food is incorporated in the whole glue is colored. Next add in a couple pinches of cornstarch. You do not need that much. Mix together. If you see lumps now it is OK because the lumps will begin to disappear once you start mixing in the other ingredients. Next mix in a small amount of hand lotion. Set aside the glue mixture. Now get another bowl and add in a couple pinches of baking soda. You do not want that much baking soda or else your slime will be very stiff and grainy. Next cover all baking soda with the eyewash. Mix together until the eyewash and baking soda are incorporated. Next toward the baking soda mixture a tiny bit of time i to the glue and mix together until your slime starts to form. Once you think you have what you want, poke the slime and make sure it does not stick to your finger. If it does add in more of the baking soda solution.

There are a lot of other ways you can do it I make mine with school glue and tude.

Is there anything I can use besides contact solution and/or eye wash and/or eye drops?

I would strongly recommend against letting your kids play with this. Eye wash, as stated above, is mostly boric acid (borax). There have been health advisories that boric acid should not be used in arts & crafts, especially by children and pregnant women, because boric acid can cause developmental and reproductive effects over multiple exposures.

Eye wash is mainly boric acid, or borax.

how long will it last before it dries out or will it get moldy???

Sheldy123 (author)mrsmerwin2017-02-22

Well, I made the same slime two months ago and it is not dry. I stored mine in a plastic container. Out of all the slimes I have made over the years, they never got moldy. I never heard of slime getting moldy and it probably won't.
