In the post, we are sharing Slime Without Glue Recipe. This slime is very similar to oobleck that a lot of us have probably grown up with. Made of shampoo, cornstarch, and water, this slime is thinner and somewhat more brittle than glue-based slime, but because there is no glue it is easier to clean, and you can even take it to the bathtub where it dissolves into sparkling pleasure. 

This is how you make three-ingredient glue-free slime.

Glue-based slime is the most common version of it because it is easy to make and reliable. 

However, it’s strangely sticky and impossible to get off when it dries. It can literally ruin your bathroom towels if your kids try to wash their slime and then dry it. 

The great thing about Slime without glue is you can make it right now without having some special ingredients.

Tips for Making Slime Without Glue Recipe

These are a few tips for you before you’re ready to make that mud!

Thick Shampoo

It’s truly a good time to use cheap shampoo, or maybe you have some shampoo at your home that you haven’t used in a while. Also, Three in one shampoo (shampoo, body wash, all in one) works excellent for making slime.

Add Color Before Adding Cornstarch

Do you want a colorful slime? But you don’t have that certain color shampoo? Don’t worry, a few drops of food color will make things easier.

Add Just Enough Water

An adequate amount of water works well. As we know shampoo itself contains water. Add enough water to make it soft and stretchy but not liquid.

How to Make Simple Slime Without Glue

Without further ado, let’s get straight into the recipe: 

What you need

  • 1/2 cup thick gel shampoo, such as Suave or Johnson’s 3-in-1 Kids
  • 2 to 3 drops food coloring (optional)
  • 2 1/2 cups cornstarch
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup cool water
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Rubber spatula
  • Airtight container for storage
  • Liquid measuring cup

Instructions (step by step)

Mix shampoo with food coloring if you use it. Pour 1/2 cup of shampoo in an average bowl. Add two or three drops of food coloring and mix.

Add the cornstarch and mix to get a crumbly paste. Add 2 1/2 cups cornstarch, then mix well. The mix should be thick and grainy, but homogenous.

Gently stir into water. Mix 2 tablespoons at a time in the water until the mixture goes from crumble to smooth, and finally viscous. Perhaps you won’t need all the water.

Knead the mud until it is soft and stretchy.

When the mixture is liquid enough to handle, use your hands to knead and stretch the mud until it is smooth and even.

Note: If you want to store it, Keep it in an air-tight container for up to 1 week at room temperature.

We have made it easily without glue. So when are you guys going to make this amazing slime?
