Maddie Rae's Slime Tips and Tricks

  • If you end up using too much liquid starch, I recommend laying your slime out on a flat surface. After 5 minutes, re-knead your slime. It should come together.
  • When using tacky glue, use liquid starch. If you have to use borax, it will take 4-5 days to lose its stickiness.
  • Borax is good for squishy slime, but not ideal for long staying slime or super stretchy slime. Use liquid starch when you want your slime to last longer.
  • When using Maddie Rae's Clear Glue, use less food dye than when using Maddie Rae's White Glue. White glue is used when you want really bright colored slime.
  • Super fine glitter will work with Maddie Rae’s Clear Glue, but larger particle glitter is preferred for Maddie Rae’s White Glue.
  • If you are using Maddie Rae’s Clear Glue without Maddie Rae’s Slime Coloring, super fine Maddie Rae’s Glitter will act like a food dye and will make some great effects.
  • When making Magnetic Slime, be sure to have neodymium magnets. It won't work without these super powerful magnets.
  • Any type of eye drops, like Visine, can be used in place of Borax. Eye drops are best used with white glue, but not with clear glues, as it will make clear glue really hard.
  • Instead of buying Orbeez at the store, find water beads at your craft shop or Amazon and you will get 20-times the amount for the same price.
  • When making slime, get the Gallon Jugs of Glue. Little bottles won't last more than one glue batch.
  • If you are looking for cool ways to decorate your slime, check out Maddie Rae’s Slime Charms, I have a variety so there is something for everyone.
  • When making fluffy slime, check out Maddie Rae’s Extra Thick Slime Glue or shaving cream sparingly as too much will make your slime like spaghetti.
  • Wash your hands after playing with or making slime, because most activators, especially borax, can irritate your skin.
