First, put four cups of water in a container.
Next, add a tablespoon of Borax to the water.
Stir the borax with a wooden stick. A pencil will work.
Continue stirring until all of the Borax soaks up into the glue. This will stay on the stick.
Next, pull the glue mixture off of the stick. The mixture will feel watery and slimy.
