Poke your slime with one finger to make sure it isn't too sticky.
Make activator before touching your slime!
Wash your hands before touching slime (slime leaves a residue on dirty hands).
Handle slime quickly so it doesn't stick to your hands, here's a video!
HOW TO MAKE ACTIVATOR:
1. Add 1 tsp borax to EXACTLY 1 cup of warm water.
2. Mix solution until the borax dissolves.
3.Add SMALL AMOUNTS (1 to 1/2 tsp)at a time or LIGHTLY DIP slime in activator.
4. Knead & fold solution into slime.
p.s. store in a marked container for future use!
1. Use activator if your slime is too sticky. How much you add is personal preference!
2. Your slime may still feel sticky until the activator is fully kneaded into the slime.
3. Too much activator → RUBBERY SLIME, Not enough activator → SLIME WILL REMAIN STICKY
4. Some slimes need less activator because there is a greater add-in to actual slime ratio in them compared to other textures. i.e. snowfizz, crunch bombs, bingsu, floams
Add activator in small amounts! Knead any lumps out of your slime until it's smooth.
If your slime was in the heat, place it in the fridge to cool down.
Remember to wash your hands. Slime will leave a sticky residue on sweaty/dirty hands.
If it's still sticky, it may need more activator!
Make sure you use EXACTLY 1 CUP of water when you make your activator.
Remember: not all slimes are meant to be holdable and are naturally tacky. Some slimes should be played with on surfaces. Try poking and handling it quickly. Watch this video if you're a visual learner!
If it's cold out, your slime may be stiff. Wait until it returns to room temperature or warming it up with your hands will help.
If it's still too hard, you can add some glue or glycerin.
Remember: slime naturally melts over time!
The best choice is to wait for it to melt. You can leave it under the sun or in a warm place. You can also add some glycerin to speed up the process!
Fall out may occur if a slime is inflated or has dried out from excessive use; this is completely normal and just the nature of slime! You can fix this by adding PLAIN clear base :)
CARING FOR YOUR SLIME:
Slime has a limited life span, but can last a long time if you care for it.
Play with your slime for 10 to 15 minutes at a time to prevent it from "dying" too early.
Wash your hands before touching your slime andplay with it on a clean surface to reduce the debris/bacteria caught in your slime and to prevent mold from growing.
Always keep your slime in its container when you're not playing with it to prevent it from drying out.
Reactivate it frequently! It's difficult to activate slime that has completely melted.
Store in a cool place that's out of the sun.
It's completely normal for slime to shrink over time. Slimes will lose moisture depending on how often you play with it.
Some shrink deflate faster than others due to the ingredients used (clay & instant snow especially).
As you play with your slime, it will get air bubbles causing it to inflate and expand. As it sits, the air bubbles will rise up and make it deflate.
Slime levels refer to how tacky and holdable a slime is.
Advanced = SUPER Tacky
Intermediate = Kinda Tacky
Beginner = Not Tacky
There's a certain way to play with slime so it doesn't stick, but it does take some time to get used to handling slime. This is why we label slimes and recommend first time buyers purchase beginner slimes!
We're not saying you CAN'T buy an advanced slime as your first slime purchase, but you may have a bad experience if you don't know how to handle it correctly. It may feel super sticky, start melting everywhere, get stuck to things, etc.
Slime can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months! Itdepends on how often you play with it and how well it's taken care of. Slimes with instant snow or air dry clay can "die" faster than other textures. This is all completely normal due to the nature of slime. Remember: it's made with glue and glue dries out if exposed to air.
We recommend washing your hands and only playing with your slime for 10 minutes at a time!
Clear slimes will get foggy over time due to the natural oils & skin cells on your hands.
Fall out can occur when a slime is too inflated (usually in crunch bombs or slimes with a small slime to add-in ratio). When inflated, there are so many air bubbles that the add-ins have nothing to stick to.
Fall out can also occur when a slime has dried out because its been well loved and played with frequently! This is completely normal due to the nature of slime. i.e. snowfizz slimes
However, some textures will naturally have fall out; if it does, we always add a note to the product description :)
If a slime is well loved, it can become dry and rubbery :(
This is all completely normal due to the nature of slime. Remember: it's made with glue and glue dries out if exposed to air.
Make sure you only play with slime for 10 minutes at a time and take good care of it (wash your hands & play with slime on clean surfaces) to make it last longer!
