Make Your Own Homemade Cleaning Slime

Pin It


I played with all sorts of slimy stuff as a kid. Sticky, stretchy, moddable, gelatinous blobs have always been popular. (Think Silly Putty, Play Doh, Gak, and Floam.) I don’t have a clue why that is. It’s fun to play with but now there is another use…cleaning!

Cleaning slime is an interesting idea. Stores sell it, so why not make your own? It’s cheaper, incredibly easy, and so fun! The kids will love this DIY. You need water, liquid starch, and glue. Glitter and food coloring are optional. This slime helps to get all those crumbs that fall in impossible to reach places. I could really use it around my center console and my keyboard!

I would use this as a ‘stress ball.’ It would be just the thing to squish and stretch my worries away. I love the idea of putting glitter or googly eyes in the slime too. Purple with glitter is my favorite! I’m curious to try making slime with liquid starch. I’ve always gone the Borax route in the past. Wonder How To has that old standby recipe here.
