Why Use Contact Solution in Slime?
Many people prefer using contact solution as their slime activator when making slime.
Contact solution contains the right mix of water and borax to thicken slime nicely without over-thickening it.
A few years ago, people believed that contact solution slime was safer for skin because it didn’t contain borax.
However, most contact solutions do contain boron, which is the same base ingredient as borax and will have the same effect on skin.
Most kids won’t have a problem with any boron or borax, as it is a type of detergent, but some kids may be extra sensitive, so you should watch out for redness and sensitivity when playing with any slime.
Step By Step Directions to Make Fluffy Slime with Contact Solution
Making fluffy slime is easy, and when you use contact solution, it’s even easier!
Next, add 1/2 a cup of shaving cream to your glue. Mix a bit, but not too much or some of the fluff will get taken away.
While mixing, squeeze in contact solution. When you use contact solution, you sort of measure by eye because not every contact solution has the same amount of slime activator in it.
Keep adding slime activator and mixing until the slime is the consistency you want. Fluffy slime should be stretchy and pillow-y, but not stringy or sticky.
You can store your fluffy slime for several days to a week or more in an airtight container.
