Step-by-Step Instructions: How to Make Clear Slime Without Borax

Step 1: Prepare the Clear Glue

Empty out all of the glue from the container into a bowl. There is usually about 4-5 ounces of glue in one of these bottles which equals about 1/2 cup of glue.

Step 2: Add a couple of pumps of foam soap.

I like to use this one but you can use any kind you like (optional)

*Do you have to use foam soap? Nope, you can leave this ingredient out but the slime may end up being a little less stretchy and will not have the same type of bubble pops if that is something you care about.

Step 3: Mix until combined well.

Step 4: Incorporate the Slime Activator

Sprinkle in a pinch or two of baking soda. Mix until well combined.

Next, it is time to add your saline solution. Squeeze in a little bit at a time, mixing after each addition until your slime forms and comes together.

Step 5: Knead the Slime

Once the slime has formed and is no longer sticky, remove it from the bowl and knead it with your hands. This step helps to remove any remaining stickiness and ensures the slime is smooth and stretchy.

If the slime is still too sticky, you can add a few more drops of saline solution and continue kneading until it reaches the desired consistency.

Step 6: Let the Slime Rest

Your slime is ready to rest after kneading and when it is no longer sticky.

Clear Slimes take about a week to clear up depending on the size of your slime batch.

Place your slime into an airtight container and allow it to rest for up to a week.

As you check your slime throughout the week, you should notice the bubbles escaping and your slime becoming clearer.

Do not poke or stretch the slime at all while the air bubbles are clearing. If you do, the slime will take even longer to clear up all the bubbles.

Once your slime has cleared, it is ready to be decorated and played with! Now, it’s time to unleash your creativity and enjoy the mesmerizing world of clear slime!

You can use glitters, foam balls, charms, and more to customize your slime however you like! Enjoy!

Clear Slime Tips and Tricks

Fresh clean hands are a must! Make sure to wash your hands properly before and after playing with your slime.

Make sure to always store your slime in an airtight container when not poking, stretching, and crunching it!

Clear slime will bubble and fog up during a slime-playing session. Keep in mind, this is not permanent and the slime can still be cleared by allowing it to rest in an airtight container. By doing this, you allow the slime to eliminate any and all bubbles that were created during playtime.
