How to Make Fluffy Slime: Five Easy Steps
To do this, you need:
• Shaving Cream – 3 cups (750 ml). Recommended brand: Barbasol.
• Elmer’s School Glue – 1/2 cup (120 ml) or a 4-ounce bottle.
• Baking Soda – 1 teaspoon (5 ml). Recommended brand: Arm & Hammer Pure Baking Soda.
• Contact Solution with boric acid as an ingredient – 1 tablespoon (15 ml). Recommended brand: Bausch & Lomb.
Add the shaving cream to a container (preferably a bowl). And as for the specified amount, don’t worry about it; the recipe is accommodating; add what you feel is right; it can absorb it.
Add your (Elmer’s School) Glue to the container.
Add your baking soda to the container.
Mix it up.
Add 15 ml (one tablespoon) contact solution to the same container and mix them all up, and you are done.
Now, it is time to let it settle. Once it sticks together, remove it from the container and stretch it for like 3 minutes with your hands. At first, it won’t feel sticky, but it becomes more pliable over time.
Tips and Recommendations
