Here is a link to some Amazon products that we recommend and use in our own shop!



My slime is sticky. What do I do?

Your order should have borax powder and instructions included to make slime activator! International orders will come with slime activator instead of borax powder.

First mix 1/2 - 1 tsp of borax into 1 cup of warm water to make your slime activator. Use 1/2 tsp of borax for clear glue slimes and 1 tsp of borax for white glue slime. Then add a few drops of the slime activator into your slime and knead. Repeat if it is still sticky. Make sure to drop in very little at a time or your slime will over activate and become hard. *Remember, slime is made with glue so it should always be a little sticky!

My slime is hard. What do I do?

Slime may arrive stiff due to cold weather. This can be easily fixed by warming it up in your hand. You can also add lotion, baby oil, or warm water into the slime. For butter slime and other clay slime, you can also add in some milky slime. 

How long will my slime last?

Slime should last for a long time as long as it is taken care of properly. Always keep it in an airtight container and a cool environment. Make sure to wash your hands before and after playing with slime so that it does not get dirty and produce bacteria.

However, slime does not last forever since it is a liquid substance! Slime will lose its moisture and may shrink or melt overtime. Slime that is properly cared for should last for a few months.

How do I make slime activator?

Add in 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of borax powder into 1 cup of warm water and mix until all the powder has dissolved. The bag included in your order should include about 1/2 tsp of borax!

How old do you have to be to play with slime?

You can be any age to play with slime! However, we recommend our products to ages 8 and up. Please keep slime away from small children and animals.
