You’ll Need:

  • Baby Oil
  • White Glue – Half Cup
  • Food Color
  • Shaving cream or scented hand soap – 4 Cups
  • Saline solution – 1.5 tbsp
  • Baking Soda – 1/2 tsp


  1. Take a large bowl and squeeze out four cups of shaving cream in it. You can also replace the shaving cream with eight generous squirts of scented hand soap.
  2. Add any bright food color to it, because the slime might look two shades paler in the finished product.
  3. Now mix half a cup of white glue with a half teaspoon of baking soda and add them to the mixing bowl.
  4. Stir 1.5 tablespoons of saline solution in the mixture till you get the perfect slimy consistency.
  5. Finally, knead with a few drops of baby oil to make it non-sticky. Be patient; the kneading may take some time to give perfect results.

The baking soda is here to make your slime look fluffier while shaving cream or hand soap would keep it a little foamy. If you choose a scented hand soap, that will do wonders to your slimes for sure. Do supervise your little ones when they are playing with this slime. Considering the boron infused saline solution in this recipe, you and your kids need to wash hands once done playing.

You’ll Need: 

  • Clear glue – 1/2 cup
  • Borax powder – 1 tsp
  • Food color (of choice)
  • Shaving cream – 1/2 cup
  • Baby oil


  1. Mix a teaspoon of borax powder in a cup of water and keep it aside for later use.
  2. Next, slowly start adding and stirring the borax solution in half a cup of glue (a third portion of the entire water solution at one time).
  3. Once the mixture starts to thicken, add the food color to the mix.
  4. Then, add half a cup of shaving cream to the mix and three generous squirts of baby oil.
  5. Keep stirring until the entire solution turns too thick to stir.
  6. Finally, put this slime on a clean platform and start kneading until it stops sticking to your hands.
  7. Store your slime in an air-tight container. It is best if you preserve it in the refrigerator.

So, are you ready for the slimes that smell amazingly good! You can also add glitter, confetti, and other add-ins to the recipes mentioned above. Enjoy when you make it, and once you make it!
