How do I fix my sticky slime?
Every order includes either a borax packet or a bottle of "spritz". If you purchased and/or received a bottle of "spritz" in your order, you can skip to the starred steps below!
1) Place slime into a refrigerator while making your activator solution.
2) Boil 1 cup of water.
3) Add entire borax packet into the water, stir until dissolved and the liquid is clear. Be cautious when using borax, it is a chemical that can be dangerous if consumed! Wash your hands before and after handling and only use with adult supervision!
4) Allow mixture to cool to avoid burning your hands! This solution can be stored in a container for later use. Keep out of reach of children and DO NOT DRINK!
*Now it's time to revive your slime! Remove the slime from the refrigerator. Keep the sticky slime in it's container to avoid mess. Add about one half teaspoon of activator to your slime and knead. Continue adding activator and kneading until the texture is smooth and your slime is no longer sticky! Make sure not to add too much activator or overactivate your slime!
*Ta-daa your slime is as good as new! Overtime slime will inevitably become sticky, so save your activator to fix it when it does!
How do I fix my hard or overactivated slime?
If your slime is overactivated the best way to fix it without changing the texture is to simply wait. Slime naturally melts over time but you can speed up the process by placing it near a heater or in a warm area!
If you don't want to wait for your slime to melt, the best thing to add is glue! Add glue one teaspoon at a time and knead. This will make the slime less hard, while only mildly changing the overall texture. Make sure to never add opaque glue to a clear slime, or it will no longer be clear! Instead, adding clear glue will preserve the clarity while fixing the hardness.
Helpful tip: Some shops tell their buyers to microwave their slime to make it less hard. I never recommend microwaving slime. All microwaves are different and exposing slime to radiation can be dangerous. There is no way to predict how the slime will react! Stay safe and please DO NOT MICROWAVE YOUR SLIME!
Helpful tip: Many slimers recommend adding lotion to slime. However, I don't. Lotion "waters" down the consistency of slime and changes the texture. It may act as a temporary solution but personally, I don't recommend it.
How do I fix bead fallout in my slime?
Often times, bead fallout happens because your slime is simply overactivated. If you think your slime is overactivated (very hard and non-stretchy) refer to the instructions above on fixing overactivated slime.
Another cause of bead fallout is dried slime. This is commonly a result of overplay. Other possibilities include: that the lid wasn't tightened properly or the slime dried out in transit. To fix your dried slime, add glue! Add glue one teaspoon at a time and knead. This will make the slime less hard while only mildly changing the overall texture! Make sure to never add opaque glue to a clear slime, or it will no longer be clear! Instead, adding clear glue will preserve the clarity while fixing the hardness.
Why isn't my clear slime clear anymore?
Unfortunately, clear slime loses it's clarity over time. Exposing the slime to dirt (on your hands or surface) will make the slime foggy. This is why it is so important to wash your hands and surface before playing with slime! The better care you take of your clear slime, the longer it will remain clear!
Another reason why clear slime won't look clear is because it is bubbly! Throughout play, air is incorporated into the slime which is the cause of all the little bubbles! Putting the slime aside to sit without being touched for 2-3 days will allow for the bubbles to rise and pop, therefore making the slime clear again!
