    In this tutorial, I’ll give you a step-by-step guide and tips on DIY Slime Non Sticky Slime. Find this perfect blend of ingredients to give your child a new highly entertaining and sensory-satisfying toy for a cheap price!

    What you need

    Before you start, you must first be sure to have the following items. This should give you a cup of floam or slime.

    You can increase these measures if you want to produce higher quantities of floam.

    • 1 bottle of Elmer’s Glue (white)
    • Borax solution
    • Take 1 teaspoon of the detergent booster, Borax, and combine it in 1 cup of hot water. Stir again till the water is clear.
    • Shaving foam – It is important to get the foam rather than the cream or gel.
    • Mixing bowls

    Other Ingredients

    Food coloring – This is an optional ingredient, but it will certainly make your slime much more interesting.

    It is also a means for your child to further customize his or her own smile. Make it their favorite color or create a bundle of bright color floam for your child that should further improve its sensory stimulation.

    Eye contact solution OR Liquid starch – This is the key ingredient to make your sludge less sticky.

    Polystyrene Balls – This should add aesthetically pleasing elements to your slime.

    Now that we have gathered all the required ingredients, it is time to create our own bib. The procedure is easy so you can have your child help or have them take the reins with you only supervising the process.

    How to make DIY Non Sticky Slime

    Step 1: Pour the whole Elmer’s adhesive into your mixing bowl. Each drop is important, so empty the bottle.

    Step 2: Take your shaving foam and pour ½ or 1 cup into the glue. Mix and stir for good consistency. In my experience, one cup of shaving foam should be more than sufficient to provide that perfect consistency of smoothness and elasticity.

    Step 3 (optional): Add some food coloring to the preparation. A few drops should be enough to give the entire mixture a strong color.

    You can also experiment beforehand by combining different food colors to get the right pallet.

    Step 4 (optional): Take your packet of polystyrene balls and mix them in the mud. Don’t pour it all into that pack! You need the mud to retain its consistency and having too many polystyrene beads there will make it harder to mold by giving it a clay consistency.

    Step 5: Now you will notice how tacky this mix is. This is where you will mix in the eye contact solution or liquid starch. Either one of them works. Drizzle with a few teaspoons of liquid starch or drops of eye contact solution.

    Stir it thoroughly and touch the sludge to see if it is still excessively sticky. If this is the case, just add a couple more of your liquid starch or eye contact solution.

    Step 6: Take your borax mixture and pour one teaspoon each into the floam. This should make the floam fit together. Once the floam and borax begin to mix, your slurry will slowly form into a clump.

    Step 7: Take a slime and put it on the table. First, check that the table is clean. Knead your slime to mix the ingredients well. If the mud feels a little clingy just add a little more eye contact solution or liquid starch.

    If it looks a little pale, pick up your food color and pour a drop or two and knead the floam.

    Store in an airtight container or ziplock bag such as Kitchenistic when not in use. This should prevent her from drying quickly and will give her at least two weeks of life and fun for the kids.

    We have created Slime in a pretty fun way. Don’t forget to share with your friends and family.
