As every small school child knows, making slime with their Mom or Dad is a joy!  And for Mom or Dad, it makes us shine.  (That alone is enough for us to endorse it - as our readers know, we're big fans of finding time for home whether it's succulents, bonsais, orchids, or a range of other home activities.) And, yet, a worry can settle in: is it safe? (Compare this article to this article.)

Kindly allow us to alleviate that fear.  There is a three-ingredient slime recipe that uses completely safe ingredients, and avoids use of potentially problematic borax slime, focusing instead on safe elmer's glue slime.  In fact, you can adapt it to make all kinds of slime, such as magnetic slime, glitter slime, pink slime, green goo, rainbow slime, fluffy slime, etc.  What's more, little to no mess!  Interested?  Read on to learn how to make slime, using a safe and fun slime recipe.  It's an amazing approach to slime:

Step 1: Gather Ingredients


* 1/2 TBSP baking soda

* 1 1/2 TBSP contact lens solution (preferably, Bausch, Opti, or Up&Up)

* 6 fl oz Elmer's Glitter Glue

Step 2: Directions


A. Embrace a bowl to mix the slime.

B. Empty the contents of a 6 oz Elmer's Glitter Glue into the bowl.

C. Add 1/2 TBSP baking soda to the glue and stir.

D. Add 1 TBSP contact solution to the glue concontion.  Mix with a spoon until slime beings to form and gets firm.

E. When the slime becomes lethargic and resistant to stirring, kindly remove the slime from the bowl and get busy with your hands!  Use your hands to finish combining the ingredients.

F. If stickiness prevails, please add 1/4 TBSP contact solution to the mixture, which should alleviate any stickiness.

Step 3: Induce Laughter & Silliness

With the step-by-step resolved, it's time for laughter & silliness!  Our 7 year-old embraced it.  Laughter reigned supreme:
