Each of these activators produces slime with a distinct texture. The thickest slime is made with borax powder, which also helps to reduce slime stickiness and mess.
Liquid laundry starch makes a consistent slime with the texture of classic slime or gak every time.
Elmer’s slime activator is a cross between borax slime and liquid laundry starch slime that works with any form of glue.
