What is slime
For this slime recipe, you will need the basic slime making ingredients: PVC glue (we use Elmer’s Glue), baking soda, and contact lens solution that contains boric acid. Boric acid and baking soda interact with the PVC glue molecules to create this unique and fun result. It’s not solid, it’s not liquid, it’s not sticky or smooth. It’s slime!
Slime is an amazingly tactile activity. When you press hard on it, it acts like a solid. However, if you hold it loosely, it will slide through your fingers as if it were a liquid. It is actually a “non-Newtonian fluid,” which means that unlike a normal fluid, it changes under stress. The more force or pressure you put on it, the more it changes from liquid to solid. It’s one of the weird and wonderful parts of science!
To create the red apple scented part of this slime recipe, you need some bright red food coloring and an apple scent. This is going to be a fragrance oil, so look for where to get essential oils and fragrance oils. Think of places where you can get soap or candle accessories.
What you need:
For this red apple scented slime recipe you will need:
- 1 bottle of PVC glue (we use a 6 ounce bottle of Elmer’s Glue)
- 1 tbsp contact lens solution with boric acid
- ½ cup of warm water
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon apple scent
- red food coloring
What you are doing:
- Pour your PVC glue into a large bowl. Then fill the empty glue bottle with warm water (so that it is about ⅓ full) and put the lid back on. Shake the bottle to remove the rest of the glue from the sides and dissolve in the water. Then pour the glue and water with the rest of the glue into the bowl and stir until everything is mixed together.
- Now add the baking soda. Mix thoroughly.
- Add the food coloring and the apple scent. (Optional: add some red glitter !!) Mix well!
- Slowly add the contact lens solution to the glue mixture, stirring well between additions. The mixture will form a soft ball as it is mixed.
- Once the slime has formed a ball, remove it from the bowl. It will be sticky!
- Play with the slime, work it with your fingers, stretch and knead it to bring it together. It will gradually lose its stickiness. When the stickiness is gone, the slime is done!
- When you’re done with this, store it in an airtight container and put it in the refrigerator for storage.
And that’s it!
