In this video, I’ll show you another recipe you can use, along with more things you can add to it!

DIY SLIME (with Borax):

• Liquid starch (Sta-Flo, 1/2 cup)
• Elmer’s glue (4 oz. bottle, clear or white)
• Water (1/4 cup)
• Additions:
– Food color
– Glow in the dark paint
– Glitter
– Wiggle eyes, toy critters

• Bowl
• Measuring cups
• Plastic bag



If you live outside of the US, look for other brand products that say “detergent booster” or “liquid starch”, those may work as a substitute.

I think detergent booster (Borax) and liquid starch (Sta-Flo) have the best results and make slime that is easier to handle. Corn starch recipes didn’t have the same consistency and didn’t work for me. If you have any other recipes, feel free to include them in the comments.

Liquid laundry detergent will work, but only for white glue. This is not my favorite recipe because it makes a sticky slime, but if you absolutely can’t find any of the other ingredients and you really want to make slime, it’s an option:

• Liquid laundry detergent (1/4 cup)
• Elmer’s glue (4 oz. bottle, white)
• Water (1/4 cup)
