PRO TIP: Before you get started, make sure you have what you need! Many people do not like to deal with borax and water when making slime- I know I don’t. Slime is best made with LIQUID STARCH and glue. It’s a ton easier and a lot more fool proof.

That being said, it can be pretty hard to find liquid starch, so pick this one up here (it’s the one I use) as well as a huge thing of glue so you can make tons of striped slime. Buying this way is a lot more cost effective and once you start making slime, you will def want to have glue on hand!

When it comes to the gallon size glue, if this one is out, go to the “Available by these sellers”. Due to the popularity of many of MomDot’s recipes, stock seems to come and go on this item. If you see one, grab it! Its IMPOSSIBLE to find gallon glue in the stores.

I think you will like this video and it will help get you less frustrated in creating slime and figuring out the direction you are going.
