Easy Fluffy Glitter Glue Slime Recipe Without Contact Solution

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.

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:

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.

If your slime isn't as pink as you would like it, you can add some soap coloring to make it a bit pinker.

Store the slime in a cool, dry place inside of a plastic storage jar to keep it usable for up to three weeks! If the slime starts to get sticky, add a little more liquid starch to bring it back to the right texture again.
