Store-bought slimes might not be an option for everyone, therefore we have collected some fluffy slime recipes for you to try at home with your kids. Learn how to make fluffy slime with liquid starch at home by following the recipes listed below.
How to Make Fluffy Slime with Liquid Starch
Fluffy Slime with Liquid Starch
- 1 Cup Shaving Cream (Foaming Shaving Cream)
- 2-3 Tablespoons Liquid Starch
- 2 Cups Elmer’s White Glue
- Food Coloring (optional)
What To Do
Take a glass bowl and pour 2 cups of Elmer’s glue in it. The glass bowl will not let the glue stick to it. Add 1 cup of shaving cream to the mixture and mix well with a spatula. You can add more shaving cream for a fluffier slime. Now add food coloring of your choice to give your slime an appealing hue or you can try and mix 2-3 colors for a unique shade.
Now, start adding liquid starch to the mix one spoon at a time and stir with a spoon. Keep adding the liquid starch until the slime takes a stringy texture and starts leaving the bowl’s surface. Take the cloud out of the boal and knead it well for a few minutes with bare hands. Once you’re happy with the texture of the slime, keep it aside for a few minutes before starting to play with it.
- Try to foam the shaving cream with a popsicle stick before adding it to the glue mixture. You can do this by stirring it in a different bowl with a popsicle or spoon until it gets fluffy.
- Elmer’s glue is preferred slime making as it is thick and consistent and works best for making slimes of any kind.
- Instead of shaving cream, you can also use foamy soap or shampoo in the above recipe, but it might not give good consistency.
Care Routine for Fluffy Slime
Fluffy slime needs to be taken care of in a similar way as regular slime. Keep it in a cool, dry place away from the sun to avoid it from getting worse and releasing oil. Also, store it in an air-tight container or a zip lock bag to prevent it from drying out.
Other Recipes for DIY Fluffy Slime

- 1 cup Shaving cream
- One tablespoon Baking soda
- Two teaspoon Contact solution
Steps To Follow
- Take around 2 cups of Elmer’s glue in a bowl and add some food coloring to it.
- Mix it well and add a cup of shaving cream. This will give the slime a foamy consistency.
- Now, in a separate bowl, take one tablespoon of baking soda and dissolve it in a few drops of contact solution. Two teaspoons of contact solution should be enough for a tablespoon baking soda but add more if it feels dry.
- Add this solution into the slime mix and stir it with a spoon until it starts to leave the bowl surface.
- Once the slime turns stringy, take it out on a clean platform and start kneading for a few minutes.
- Your slime will be ready in no time if you follow these instructions step by step.
- 1⁄2 cup shampoo
- 1 cup shaving foam
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1⁄3 cup water
- Food coloring (optional)
Steps To Follow
In a bowl, take ½ cup of shampoo. However, keep in mind that the shampoo must have a thick consistency. Add the shaving cream followed by the food coloring and mix the solution well. Now add cornstarch to the mixture while constantly stirring to avoid lumps. This will thicken the mix. Once properly mixed, start adding one tablespoon water at a time and keep stirring it constantly. Knead it for few minutes, and the slime will be ready.
What To Do If My Fluffy Slime Is Not Fluffy Anymore?
Playing for a long time or taking it out from storage after a few days can turn slime hard and it can lose its puffiness as much you would desire in a fluffy slime. To fix this, first, add 1-2 drops of moisturizing lotion to soften the slime. Knead it well, and if it is still not slimy enough to play with, you can add more shaving cream. Accordingly, add 1-2 drops of activator as well to make it blend well into the slime. Kneading for a few minutes can drastically improve the texture.
