One of my favorite slime recipes is this simple glitter glue slime recipe without contact solution. We’ve been making a lot of slime recipes without contact solution, because using contact solution is one of the most expensive ways to make slime.
For this recipe, we use borax powder instead of contact lens solution to make this beautiful, soft, and stretchy fluffy glitter glue slime.
And best of all, using borax powder as the slime activator means that this is a low-mess slime that won’t immediately stick to clothing, hair, and furniture.
The Easy Way to Make Glitter Glue Slime Fluffy
Making fluffy glitter glue slime is easy when you have the right materials and supplies. I often prefer making fluffy slime over other slime recipes, because it isn’t as messy as most other types of slime.
Follow along with these directions to learn how to make your own fluffy glitter glue slime!
What You Need for the Fluffy Glitter Glue Slime Recipe without Contact Solution
When we make fluffy slime, we’ve found that the best materials to use are classic white shaving cream and Elmer’s glue. Something about other brands of glue just don’t make slime quite as well as Elmer’s glue.
I also like to use a metal fork to mix up my slime. The metal fork helps the slime bond faster and prevents it from getting too stringy or clumpy.
You’ll need the following ingredients to make this slime:
- Elmer’s pink glitter glue
- White shaving cream
- Borax powder
- Mixing bowl
- Storage jar
- Metal fork

Most of these slime kits have everything you need to make slime all in one place, but since many of them aren’t fluffy slime kits, you may still want to add shaving cream to get that true fluffiness that I love from fluffy slime.
Once you’ve gathered your slime ingredients it’s time to make fluffy glitter glue slime!
Without the addition of contact solution, this glitter glue slime is inexpensive to make and lasts a long time without getting too stick.
Why Make Fluffy Glitter Glue Slime without Contact Solution?
I’ve tried just about every slime recipe on the planet, and there are some slime-making tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way. You can learn more about how to make your slime foolproof in my Slime Troubleshooting Guide.
What I found is that not only is contact solution more expensive than many other slime activators, it also tends to make slime that is stringy and running.
Slime made without contact solution (at least this recipe) will last longer and so your children can play with the slime for many more days than if you had used contact solution!
