add salt it will soften the mixter

randomslimer (author)will10042017-10-24

try using less activator and leave it in a closed container when your not playing with it. As for the hard slime...well there really is no fixing it. You have to make a new batch

Try to put it a sandwich container

Put lotion in it it will get a little weid just keep mixing in your hands

What type of glue?

randomslimer (author)Misty_Ninja2017-10-24

elmers glue is the best. it may be expensive...but it's worth it.

Elmers glue plain white is only like 78 cents

School glue elmers glue basically any pretty thick glue will work

Pva or school glue

Maybe try white elmers glue

It didn't work out well. It just felt sticky and it kind of looked a little weird. But thanks anyways.

Use borax solution instead of Tide or liquid detergent

HypnoH (author)2017-06-15

It didn't work. I used Ross School Glue and Arm & Hammer detergent and it didn't work. It just became simple soap

randomslimer (author)HypnoH2017-10-24

Use elmers glue and either Tide or borax solution and follow the same should work

IF HAVING TROUBLE MAKING SLIME MAYBE MY EXPERIENCE WILL BE HELPFUL! I don't know much about making slime but my daughter has made it with her friends and by herself multiple times. She has always used Tide liquid laundry detergent for HE washer machines without any problems. She recently started making slime alot because she wanted to start a slime collection. She was using up so much of my Tide which we all know isn't cheap so I decided to buy her bottle of cheaper laundry detergent for slime making. Unfortunately she was unsuccessful after multiple attempts. She tried everything we could think of like using more detergent and then using less detergent but it was still a major slime fail. The detergent she used was Sun triple clean tropical breeze which is also suppose to be safe for all HE washers. I'm not sure why it wouldn't work and as I was googling whether we needed to use a specific kind of laundry detergent to make slime I stumbled across this page. I read that alot of people were having trouble making slime so i thought it might be helpful to share my experience. To me it seems like it matters what brand of laundry detergent you use to make slime.

Please don't fear! I too know that to make slime you need to use a lot of tide and it is expensive. However, borax works just as well as tide and maybe even better! You can by a huge bow for just $12 and it lasts you for sooooo long. Here is the recipe for the borax solution: You add one half cup of borax to one teaspoon of water and mix thouroly.Then, to activate your slime you just add about a tablespoon of the borax solution at a time and keep mixing until it comes to the consistency you want it to be at. And then...Yea! I make at least one slime a day and I've been doing it for a couple of months now and I'm still not even half way done with my box or borax so it's a great deal really, also better then contact solution or Tide.

very alsome

Hi. For cheaper and better quality slime you could use regular elmers glue and contact solution. If your daughter wants to make fluffy colored slime all you would need food coloring, shaving cream and elmers glue thats all.
