instructions

1

combine 1/4 cup glue + 1 Tbs unscented body wash in a small mixing bowl.

2

add a few drops of food coloring. we recommend starting with 2 drops for most colors but up to 6 more drops for light colors like yellow. mix!

3

add  1/4 cup liquid starch to your glue/soap mixture and stir thoroughly. add more liquid starch 1 tablespoon at a time as needed.

your mixture will change from a liquid to a non-newtonian fluid. you’ll know it has happened when you can lift the slime from your bowl with a craft stick.

4

coat your hands with cornstarch and knead your slime until it is no longer sticky and can be moved from hand to hand with ease.

5

store your soapy bubbling slime in an airtight container.
