How to Make a Super Stretchy Slime Recipe
This DIY super stretchy slime recipe is the most stretchy slime with only 3 ingredients! Glue, laundry starch, and lotion are all you need!
Fair warning, this slime is a bit stickier than some other slime recipes, like our easy slime recipe with borax or our best fluffy slime recipe.
But sometimes, the experience is worth a bit of a mess!
How to Clean Up Slime
Since this slime is a bit sticky, it’s helpful to know how to manage it up front.
Make this slime in an area with a hard floor. Dress your kids in clothes that can be washed.
Slime is easy to wash out of clothing, but it can be a bit trickier to get slime out of carpet.
How to Get Slime Out of Carpet
If you get slime in the carpet, try to get as much of it up as possible before it dries. Slime is harder to clean when it hardens.
You can use soap and water to clean up slime and you can also use something like goo-gone to clean up slime.
How to Get Slime Out of Clothing
If you get slime in your clothing, pop it into the washer as soon as possible and wash with warm water.
How to Get Slime Out of Hair
If you get slime in your hair, add some conditioner and let it soak for about 20 minutes. Then wash and rinse out as normal.
Ingredients Needed to Make Stretchy Slime
For this slime recipe, and most of our slime recipes you’ll need:
If you don’t live in a place that sells laundry starch slime, you can use Elmer’s slime activator or contact lens solution to activate your slime.
Super Soft, Stretchy Slime Recipe
The first step to making this stretchy slime recipe is to combine your glue and lotion in a 1 to 1 ratio. If you use 1/2 a cup of glue, use 1/2 a cup of lotion.
Add in the coloring you want using soap coloring or acrylic paints. Either one will work, I just happen to like soap colorants a bit better.
Next, add your slime activator to your slime. Typically, you’ll add about as much activator as you did glue, but sometimes you’ll need less, so add about half as much as you think you need and stir before adding any more.
Your slime will start to form right away. Keep stirring and adding activator a bit at a time until it starts to form slime you can touch without it sticking to your hands.
This slime will always be a bit sticky, because of the nature of the slime, but if it really bothers you how sticky it is, add a bit more activator.
If it’s still too sticky for your liking, you can add a bit of cornstarch to make it a bit stiffer. This will make the slime a little less stretchy, but it will still be plenty stretchy!
