How to Make Homemade Slime

May 24, 2018

I’ve been meaning try making some homemade slime for the kids for the longest time. So when I found that Lazada Philippines sold some Borax powder, I jumped into the opportunity. If you got a big batch of Borax, you can it use it around the house. There are also a few science experiments that uses Borax. A quick search on Google will help you find what you’re looking for.

I used this recipe to make our homemade slime. But the site also offers several options that you can choose from if you don’t have any borax lying around the house. You can find the step-by-step instructions for a Borax Slime Recipe below.

Borax Slime Recipe

Supplies Needed

  • Non-toxic PVA Glue (We used Elmer’s Glue)
  • Borax Powder 
  • Water
  • Measuring Cups / Spoons
  • Bowl
  • Spatula / Spoon
  • Food Coloring (Optional)
  • Essential Oils (Optional)


Mix 1/2 C of glue and 1/2 C of water in a clean bowl. Add food coloring and 2-3 drops of essential oils (optional). In another bowl, mix 1/2 TSP of borax powder with 1/2 TSP warm water. Let powder dissolve in the water completely.

Add borax mixture to the glue, and stir thoroughly using a spoon.

Knead with your hands once the mixture starts to clump up.

Enjoy your homemade slime!
