- Do not leave children unattended when making the slime.
- Do not use any products which you or your child are sensitive to.
- Slime must not be eaten.
- To avoid confusion, always label your slime container.
- Store slime out of reach of small children and pets.
- It is best to make slime on a smooth/adhesive-coated surface. Clean the surfaces thoroughly afterwards.
- Thoroughly clean containers/bowls, tools etc. after use.
- Avoid contact with eyes, airways or clothing. (Slime can be washed away with warm water and soap.)
- It is best to make and store slime at room temperature.
- Slime must not be frozen or heated.
- Thoroughly wash your hands after handling slime.
- If beads or other small parts are added to the slime this poses a choking hazard.
- If you use UV powder to make the slime, make sure that the powder is suitable for application on the skin.
- The first step is to carry out a skin tolerance test on a small part of the body. If you have any kind of allergic reaction, we strongly advise against using the powder.
- Special attention: Orange colour pigment. This is often formed with another compound (calcium sulphide) and, according to the Ordinance on Hazardous Materials, is an irritant. In this case, it is not suitable for making slime.
Slime consists of a glue base and activating agents.
Basis: UHU Glue Pen
Activating agent: Contact lens fluid (combined solution) + sodium bicarbonate
Our UHU Glue Pen is perfectly suitable for the production of slime and has been dermatologically tested for skin compatibility. The glue chemically reacts with the contact lens fluid + sodium bicarbonate which causes the slime to become elastic. The combination of contact lens fluid and sodium bicarbonate is suitable for coloured as well as transparent slime, since it does not cause the slime to change colour.
Tips & tricks
After use, store the slime in an air-tight container (preserving jar, jam jar, etc.) so that it does not dry out. Label the container!
If your slime does not have the desired consistency, see the following tips:
Slime = too hard/not elastic
1) Leave the slime to rest for a few days after making it in order to burst any air bubbles that have formed.
2) If 1) does not work, add cream (any type) for elasticity
3) Dip the slime in warm water
Slime = sticky/runny
1) Add more contact lens fluid;
2) In an emergency, add some corn starch.
If the slime does not get any harder, throw it away!
