Frequently Asked Questions
Does Your Slime Contain Borax?
Some will, not all. Borax will be listed in description if used. Make sure to read ingredients listed.
Is Borax Safe in Slime?
We want you to know that before we even decided to use borax in our own personal slimes, we researched and read and searched the internet, read many articles, just to be sure it would be safe for us to use it.
The reason we were so cautious is because a video went viral on the internet about slime with borax, this video caused a bit of a scare, sharing that borax can cause 3rd degree burns and is harmful in slimes. Naturally, we were saying no way to borax, then we realized and started to learn of many major slime businesses using it in their slimes still, we asked many questions and again researched a ton, and came to the conclusion that -YES it is safe in your slime!
Borax must be used with caution and moderation, and you really only need a very small amount to make your slime activator (activator is what makes your glue thicken and then eventually makes it slime) We use 1 teaspoon of borax - this is a super small amount, and we add it to 1 cup of warm water, shake well to let the borax dissolve and BAM-you have a great activator-that goes a long way! In my opinion it is the currently the BEST way to activate slime.
Slime and borax are not edible, do NOT eat slime I don't care how good it smells,it's NOT edible. We have now been using borax in our personal slimes for quite some time and have been happy with the results and it has been safe for us to now continue using it in the slimes in my shop. We felt this was important to share because we had the same concerns about borax.
How do I take care of slime?
Wash your hands before and after playing with slime, store slime in a container so it doesn't harden or get dirty. Do not leave it on furniture or get it on your clothes.
How old do I have to be to play with slime?
As far as we know, there is not any definite age that we can say, BUT in our experience with slime we recommend ages of about 8 and older. Keep slime away from small children and pets, and if you recieve any charms with yur slime please also keep these away from small children and pets.
Does Every Slime Come With A Charm?
Some will, MOST will, but please always read each description when ordering your slime.

Last but not least Borax. *I'm adding this last because I will be honest, a long time ago...I was under impression Borax was ok to use for slime, then it was blasted all over the internet and social media that it causes 3rd degree burns, which scared a lot of people, in researching further we found very popular slime accounts were and still are sending out borax in their slime care packages, very small packets, so to be sure & extra safe, we read and read and learned it is ok to use, as long as it is done responsibly & in small usage. You really only need a small amount anyway. When you receive your Slime Care Sheet you will get specific instructions. I always recommend reading for safety. I'm no longer terrified of using it after looking further into it, but I know that it was a big concern and went viral so for extra precaution I still recommend you using at your own discretion and only after reading this and your care instructions!!
*If we use borax in your slime, it will be listed in the description of your slime. If not listed then there's no borax in your slime. Please read your items descriptions.
**some other add ins may be included in your slime, they are to make up the type of slime you purchase and are for texture purposes. Some might be: fishbowl beads, slushie beads, floam, foam beads, fake snow, instant snow, shredded foam, cubed sponge pieces. Additional charms may be added with your order, please read item description and suggestions as to whether or not you should put in your slime or they are just charms for collecting. Please keep these charms out of reach of small children and pets.
