The secret to making super-smooth, easy-to-handle slime is to add shaving cream. The amount of shaving cream used will change the texture and consistency of the paste. The more you add, the softer and fuller it will be. The fun part about making slime is experimenting with different ingredients and amounts! As logic dictates, some ingredients cannot be omitted, because the recipe will not work. Either way, if you want to know how to make slime without using glue or borax, there are plenty of other recipes you can replicate.

Also keep in mind that in our recipe we use a contact lens solution containing boric acid instead of pure borax. Therefore, it is not a dangerous substance to handle, but just in case, we recommend that an adult make a slime. Similarly, children should always be supervised when playing with the dough and should not be offered to children under 3 years of age for safety reasons.

Finally, keep in mind that the resulting slime will only be very soft on the day it is made. Of course, you can save it for later, but you will notice that it is less soft the next day. Store the dough in an airtight container and kids can play with it for a week or so, even if it gets a little chewy.

What are the ingredients (per batch)?

When it comes to the unicorn effect, just pastel colors create magic. But there is a trick… The trick is not to add all the dyes in one batch of slime, because they will mix. Instead, make 3 doses of the paste, coloring each in a different milky shade. Then when the kids play and knead them together, the rainbow unicorn effect will happen by itself. So, here’s how to make soft and absolutely incredible slime:

  • 2/3 cup white school glue*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2-3 cups of shaving cream (do not use shaving gel because the effect will not be the same and the recipe will not work)
  • 1.5 tablespoons prescription lens cleaning solution

Please note: The contact lens solution formula must contain boric acid and sodium borate in the ingredients list. This is what interacts with the glue to form slime.

  • liquid food coloring in shades of your choice (pastel is great for a unicorn effect, but any other shade will work)
  • mixing bowl

*The original recipe uses Elmer’s Glue, which is the most popular brand name in the US and can be found at some craft stores or ordered online. Otherwise, use regular PVA glue, which is always a solution of polyvinyl acetate (plus polyvinyl alcohol and propylene glycol) in water.
