Easy 2 Ingredient Glitter Slime

All opinions are mine and mine alone. Didn’t receive anything for my post.

SLIME! I know everyone right now is crazy about it including my 8 year old. She has so many ideas I had to put the breaks on and tell her one thing at a time. We tried a few recipes. The Borax one in honestly sucked.. Plus when I think of Borax I think of poison…. Anyway we decided to try glue and laundry detergent slime. We use these products everyday, I felt better about them so why not.

We also spent a lot of time getting super horrible slime! It was a MESS! I feel for you guys out there trying it and not achieving that amazing slimy texture you want. This recipe is by far the easiest I have tried. It can be tweaked too.

TIP- Don’t be scared of the stickyness, just keep working at it.

Things to keep in mind- Whatever liquid detergent you use will add color if its colored and also smell like the detergent. Also if someone has sensitive skin, try a clear or sensitive skin kind. My daughter can’t use certain detergents. Some detergents also dry out your skin but you know what works for your family. I got a gallon of slime at Michaels Craft stores. I also used a 50% off coupon. It was $27- With a coupon I had It made it about $14. STEAL!

YOU NEED 

Elmer’s Glue 1/2 Cup

Liquid Laundry Detergent (About 1 1/2- 2 teaspoons)

Plastic bowls

Spoons

Paper towels

OPTIONAL- Glitter

First start by pouring your glue into the plastic bowl. I also pour some detergent in the cap and add a teaspoon to the cap. Makes it easier to use later.

Once your glue is in the bowl. Grab your spoon and add a spoonful to the glue. Stir it well. Then play it by ear, you can add a 1/2 spoonful or a full one depending how much glue isn’t becoming sticky. The more detergent you add the “harder the slime will be”.

I usually mis the glue around well, add a tiny bit more and once it al balls ups. I take it out with my hands and start to work at it. Knead it in your hands. If it is super slippery. Grab a paper towel and dry your hands. Removing the detergent from your hands does a whole world of difference. Knead it some more until it is a smooth constancy.

Now go ahead and add in your packet of glitter. We add a little bit at a time so the glitter doesn’t go anywhere. (If you are a glitter HATER, don’t use it. It will get on your hands and counter. )

Now once your glitter is all mixed in, you can clean up and enjoy your slime. Store it in a plastic zip lock baggy to prolong it’s life!
