How To Make homemade slime

  • 1

    The mixture will be very soft and wet. Keep kneading until it firms up and feels dry. Discard excess liquid in bowl.

    The more you knead and play with the slime the firmer it will become. Store in a Ziploc bag or air tight container and the slime will keep indefinitely.
