What can u use instead of Borax for slime?

Contact solution can be used in place of borax. Learn how to make slime with contact solution here. Note that saline solution is not the same as contact solution for purposed of making slime.

Also, you need to make sure to use Contact Lens Solution  that contains boric acid and sodium borate. This is important too!

You can also use liquid laundry detergent instead of borax. However, this often still contains borax in it so it is not truly borax free.

Choose the option that works best for you and you family. I often use what I already have or can get the best deal on.

Keep it simple and have a blast! You will be making special memories with your children and have the best time!
