Have you jumped on the DIY slime trend yet? We LOVE this slime recipe that's created using Aleene's Original Tacky Glue, shaving cream, and borax. This soft, squishy DIY slime is a lot fluffier than other slime and you'll be playing with it for hours. Check out our DIY video below to make your own Fluffy Slime!
What you need:
– 4-oz. or 5-oz. bottle of Aleene's Original Tacky Glue – 1 cup of shaving cream – 1 tsp. of Borax Multi-Purpose Household Cleaner (sodium tetraborate) – 2 tbsp. of lotion – 2 cups of water – Food coloring or Tulip Soft Fabric Paint in color of your choice
Squeeze entire bottle of glue into a bowl or plastic container. You may need to slightly dilute leftover glue in the bottle with water to empty completely.
Add the food coloring or fabric paint to the glue. Start with a few drops and continue to build up to achieve the desired color intensity.
In a separate bowl, combine the Borax with 1 cup of hot water. Set the Borax solution aside.
Add the lotion and shaving cream to the glue mixture and stir to combine.
Slowly add the Borax solution to the glue while stirring. Continue stirring as the slime begins to form. When the slime starts to form, use your hands to knead and work it around. Discard any excess water that remains in the container.
Tip: Slime can last up to several weeks when stored in a tightly sealed bag. Check periodically, as slime can spoil faster when handled more often.
