How to make slime with shaving cream:

Slime add-ins are additional items that can be purchased to mix into the slime to give it a unique look or texture.

The first add-in I would recommend for your slime supplies is shaving cream foam.  You’ll want to get the foam kind not the traditional shaving cream,  This add-in is needed to create fluffy slime and snow slime.

It makes the slime light, fluffy and less sticky. This is how to make slime fluffy. The texture is amazing and a blast to play with!

How to make slime with contact solution:

Contact solution and baking soda are so simple to use and probably one of the easiest activators to use. Note that it is super important to make sure to use Contact Lens Solution  that contains boric acid and sodium borate.

This is important as your slime will not activate without this. Saline solution is not the same as contact solution when it comes to making slime.

Learn how to make slime with contact solution. Contact solution slime is so easy to make with just 3 ingredients and a blast to create.

If you are just starting out with slime, this is a great one to try first. With only 3 ingredients, it is so easy to make and perfect for kids to do.

How to make slime without borax:

If you prefer to use something instead of borax as an activator, try using liquid starch  or contact lens solution and baking soda. 

There are several options and you can just use the one you prefer.
