What you're asking is this: ' How to make Normal Saline' , or in otherwords,, how to make salt water with the right amount of salt in it so that it's about the same is the salt in your own body .. ie, 0.9% salt.

Here, this article is very clear and yields a solution that is 'close enough' to be used for most any appropriate purpose: IF using it to make 'slime' , then the boiling isnt all that important ... BUT if using it to store/clean contact lenses or any other purpose that involves any one's 'body' (like cleaning a wound,e.g., then the boiling part is very important, for it's necessary that the saline be STERILE. 'Slime' has no idea what 'sterile' is, so no need for boiling.. DON'T make huge quantities, for bacteria can grow in saline! .. Keep with the 'one cup water + 1/2 level teaspoon (about 2.4 grams of kitchen salt.... you can always make more later...! Use a measuring cup, to get your 1-cup of water ( that's about 250 cc ).

if you add any salt as long as its a fine grained salt with hydrogen paroxide and shake well you can use it every day as a solution my eye doctor recomended it because my whole family uses contact lenses and its too expensive to buy everyone in the house a bottle of solution so thats also a good way too

It´s ok but you shouldn´t do everyday... just for an emergency

This should only be used for an emergency situation though.
