    You are cute girls. No clear glue where I live. I enjoyed watching you. BTW, I'm 72+

    I guess it's a handy way to do it if you don't have borax, but do have extra eyedrops or buffered saline solution. Might be easier to get just the right amount of borax, too.

    We've made a lot of slime and this really is the easiest way we've found to make slime, and we get the best results from it too. Plus you aren't putting your hands into a bunch of Borax water (though there is boric acid in the eyedrops, we feel like there is a smaller amount), which probably isn't great. Hope you get to try the recipe!
