Does any know how to make slime?? I know it's gross, but lol has been trying for most of the hols and has no success. I've looked on google and bought ingredients accordingly, but it's not worked.
Just wondered if any of your lo's have made some and had success.
Failing this any science teachers out there that know, would very much appreciate the recipie. Many thanks.

Key ingredient, Borax, isn't sold in U.K. What are you making it with?

Pva glue, pinch of bicarbonate of soda and then add some Bausch & Lomb Sensitive Eyes Saline Solution available from Amazon. Keep on stirring then add a little at time. We don't use precise measurements as it is a bit of trial and error.
Also good to add shaving foam in it.
Tried lots of methods but this is the only one that really works.
You can then try food colouring but we got it working first.

Contact lense solution, glue, food colouring, aftershave foam. Lo has tried other stuff, but can't remember what, as gone through so many products this summer. Lo did mention getting some borax and the chemist did say we wouldn't be able to. Just wondered if there was another way of making it?

Watching as we've been doing similar as have many of DD's friends, think is the reason why our local supermarket has run out of slime! Also no success, what is borax as DD keeps talking about it?
