Step 5: Borax,water and Glue Mixture

Add the borax and water mixture to the glue lotion and shaving foam mixture and stir. Make sure that you don't put to much of the borax mixture and not too less. It should be a little sticky but not to much.

Add the daiso Japanese soft clay with the slime until it becomes a clay texture and stretchy like slime.

The borax + 1 cup hot water never soaked in and the soft molding clay never folded in. This recipe didn’t work for us.

Don't add to much of the shaving cream cause it's not a fluffy slime
