UV Powder

  • 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.

Basic ingredients

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!
