SLIME CARE

POKE YOUR SLIME WITH ONE FINGER TO MAKE SURE IT ISN'T TOO STICKY! 

Depending on where you live, your slime could arrive melted due to the warm weather, or cold + stiff due to the cold weather. You can find fixes for these problems below.

 

How to make activator:
1. Add 1 tsp of the provided borax to 1 cup of warm water.
2. Mix the solution until it dissolves. 
3. Add the solution in SMALL AMOUNTS!
4. Knead your slime until it is smooth :-)

How to play with slime: 
First, wash your hands and apply lotion. Slime will stick to dirty hands. We recommend playing with slime on or over a clean table. It's important to handle slime quickly so it doesn't stick to your hands! 

 

TIPS FOR W H I T E  G L U E  B A S E D SLIME:

My slime is...
...hard? Slime will naturally melt/get stickier over time! Adding lotion will also help. If it is cold out, your slime may be stiff. Simply warming it up with your hands will help.
...sticky? Adding in drops of activator will help! If you add too much, it can ruin your slime. It will be lumpy after activating, just knead it until it's smooth.
...still sticky? Not all slimes are meant to be holdable! Some slimes are meant to be played with on surfaces. Also, try poking and handling it quickly.
...foam beads falling out? The beads will start fall out if you add too much activator. Don't worry! Slime will naturally get stickier over time and fix itself.

TIPS FOR C L E A R  G L U E  B A S E D SLIME:

Clear slime melts faster than white glue slime! We usually over-activate our clear slimes so it arrives perfectly.

...sticky? Adding in drops of activator will help! If you add too much, it can ruin your slime. It will be lumpy after activating, just knead it until it's smooth. It may be bubbly after, but it should clear up in a few days!
...still sticky? Clear slimes are naturally stickier than white glue slimes! Try poking and handling it quickly. 
...beads falling out? Slushee, fishbowl, & foam beads will start to fall out if you add too much activator. Don't worry! It will naturally get stickier over time and fix itself.

TIPS FOR B U T T E R SLIME:

Butter slime is made by mixing slime and air dry clay. If you play with it for over 20-30 minutes, it may dry up </3. It is normal for butter slime to dry up over time. Make sure to keep your butter slime in it's container when you're not playing with it!

My butter slime is... 
...hard? Adding lotion will help! 
...still hard? If your butter slime has dried up, there is no way to fix it. :-( Remember to keep it in it's container! 
...sticky? Adding LITTLE DROPS of activator at a time will help! If you add to much, it will ruin your slime, so be careful. It will be lumpy after activating. All you have to do is knead it until it's smooth.

TIPS FOR C L O U D SLIME:

Cloud slime is made by mixing slime with fake snow. Our cloud slimes have a little snow fallout & do leave a bit of residue on your hands due to the snow! However, it does leave a lot less residue compared to other cloud slime recipes :-)

My cloud slime is... 
...hard? 
Try adding lotion!

...crumbling? It may need some activator! Add activator in little drops & knead until it starts to come together.
...not drizzling? Cloud slime has to be "fluffed up" until there are no lumps. If you're not sure how to, watch this video:

Slime has a limited life span. If these tips don't work, it may not be possible to repair it. :-(
It is normal for slime to shrink and deflate over time!

Remember: Keep your slime away from pets, clothes, carpet, and furniture. Slime is NOT edible!
