3 Ingredients for contact solution slime:
- 1 bottle of glitter Glue (6 0z)
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 ½ Tbsp Contact Lens Solution (solution contains boric acid and sodium borate. This is important!!!)
How to make slime with contact solution:
- Put the glue in a mixing bowl.
- Add baking soda and stir.
- Slowly add in the Contact Lens Solution until the mixture forms to the consistency that you prefer.
- As you add the solution, you’ll eventually need to mix and knead with your hands to form the stretchy slime. Now it is time to play with slime.
- The kids will go crazy over this slime. It is just so fun to make and play with. Make sure to wash hands when finished playing with slime.
You can also use a bottle of elmer white glue and mix in food coloring or paint of your choice to the glue prior to mixing in the baking soda.
We do this sometimes and it just so fun. The kids each choose a color to make and it is really neat to see how they all turn out.
Is saline solution the same as contact solution for slime?
It is not the same when it comes to making slime. You have to use contact solution for contact lenses for the slime to turn out with activators.
This is super important so make sure to use the right kind of solution. While this easy contact solution is so simple to make and only requires 3 ingredients, you do need to make sure you use the right ones.
The slime will not form properly if you use plain saline solution. Also, you need to make sure to use Contact Lens Solution that contains boric acid and sodium borate. This is important too.
How to store:
I like to store the slime in a mason jar or ziploc baggie to keep it fresh. You can use whatever you prefer.
This DIY is so easy.
It really is the perfect slime recipe when you need a super fun activity but don’t want to spend tons of time or money. This is very frugal to make and so easy with just 3 ingredients.
