How To Make Slime With Borax {and Without Borax Too!}


Slime is a fun and easy project that kids and adults alike can enjoy. It’s a simple mixture of glue and a slime activator that creates a gooey and stretchy substance. In this tutorial, we’ll be making slime with glitter glue and without borax.


To make glitter slime without borax, you’ll need the following materials:

  • 1 bottle of glitter glue (6 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp contact lens solution
  • Bowl
  • Spoon

Step 1: Pour the Glitter Glue into a Bowl

Start by pouring your glitter glue into a bowl. You can use any color of glitter glue you like to create a unique slime color.

Step 2: Add the Baking Soda

Next, add half a teaspoon of baking soda to the bowl. This will help to activate the slime and make it stretchy.

Step 3: Mix the Glue and Baking Soda Together

Use a spoon to mix the glue and baking soda together until they are well combined. Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl to get all the glue mixed in.

Step 4: Add the Contact Lens Solution

Add one tablespoon of contact lens solution to the bowl. You can use any brand of contact lens solution, but make sure it contains boric acid and sodium borate as these are the ingredients that activate the slime.

Step 5: Mix the Slime

Use your spoon to mix the slime together. At first, it will be very sticky and gooey. Keep mixing until it starts to come together and forms a ball.

Step 6: Knead the Slime

Once the slime has come together, take it out of the bowl and knead it with your hands. This will help to get rid of any excess liquid and make the slime stretchy and pliable.

Step 7: Play with the Slime

Your slime is now ready to play with! You can stretch it, squish it, and mold it into different shapes. Store it in an airtight container when you’re not playing with it.


  • If your slime is too sticky, add a little more contact lens solution and knead it in.
  • If your slime is too stiff, add a little more glue and knead it in.
  • Use gloves or wash your hands thoroughly before playing with the slime to avoid getting it on your clothes or furniture.


Making slime with glitter glue and no borax is a fun and easy project that anyone can do. With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a gooey and stretchy substance that will provide hours of entertainment. Follow the steps above and enjoy your homemade slime!
