6 Fool Proof & Easy Slime Mixtures with Edible SLIME Mixture!!

Fool Proof Slime Mixture (we experimented and tried them all)

  • Begin with 1 cup of cold water in a bowl you may add other ingredients such as food colouring at this stage
  • Add 200ml of PVA glue (you may have t experiment with the PVA glue that works best for you)
  • In a different bowl pour in 1 to 2 teaspoons of boric acid or sodium borate or bicarbonate soda (which ever you have access to)
  • Stir until you cannot see the boric acid or sodium boric or bicarbonate soda mixture
  • From your first bowl, pour in the cold water and food colouring mixture into the second bowl SLOWLY
  • Knead it to get the right consistency and STICKINESS!


If you are using Borax please use gloves and wash your hands afterwards. Borax is corrosive. You may substitute for laundry starch or washing up liquid — Almat washing/bio gel in Aldi is fantastic in this mixture and CHEAP!
