We understand many parents are uncomfortable using liquid starch to create slime and prefer chemical free ingredients. Following are some great slime recipes that do not use liquid starch. Each type of slime will have a unique texture and feel based on the ingredients used.
1/2 cup Elmer's washable clear glue
1/4 tsp baking soda
buffered saline solution- this can be found in the pharmacy at the eye care aisle
Mix glue and baking soda very well. Add food coloring if using. Slowly add a few drops of the saline, mixing well. Keep adding saline until mixture is a stringy ball. Wet hands with a few drops of saline and continue to mix slime until the consistency improves. If slime is still too sticky, add several more drops of saline and knead slime until desired consistency is achieved.
1/3 cup Elmer's glue
1 cup cornstarch
