    What is a slime activator, and how should it be used?

    • Using a slime activator is necessary to create and maintain the chemical reaction that results in slime.
    • Before playing with your slime, carefully touch it to test if it is sticky.
    • If it is sticky add tiny amounts (drops) of slime activator at a time.
    • BE CAREFUL: slime can get overactivated quickly.

    How to make your very own slime Activator:

    1. Take the activator dust that is included in your order.
    2. Measure 2 cups of warm water and add your activator dust (alternatively you can only measure 1 cup of water and add half of your activator dust (1/2 teaspoon).
    3. Stir until all of the powder is fully dissolved. Done!

    Slime likes...

    • cool temperatures because it will keep it nice and non-sticky.
    • clean hands because they will keep it clean and germ-free.
    • to be stored in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out.
    • small amounts of activator every now and then.

    Slime doesn’t like...

    • warm temperatures because it will make it sticky.
    • dirty hands because they will make it dirty and germy.
    • fabric of any kind because it will stick to it.
    • to be left outside of its container for too long because it will cause it to dry out. 

    Help, my slime is sticky!

    • As the chemical reaction that results in slime weakens, it causes your slime to become sticky or even liquifed (this is called “underactivated” slime).
    • EASY FIX: Re-activate your slime by adding small amounts of activator and kneading it in until the desired slime texture is achieved.
    • CAUTION: Only add small amounts of activator at a time to prevent your slime from getting overactivated and therefore hard and stiff.

    Help, my slime is stiff!

    • Your slime can become hard and stiff by adding too much activator.
    • Three EASY FIX options:
      • Knead in PVA glue (e.g. Elmer’s Glue)
      • Knead in some lotion or baby oil (not recommended for clear slime)
      • Knead in some warm water until your slime is nice and soft again

    Help, my slime is not clear anymore!

    • Clear slime normally becomes cloudy and bubbly after playing with it.
    • EASY FIX: Simply give your slime some rest and don’t touch it for a couple of hours/days (depending on the amount of bubbles). This process can be sped up by keeping your slime in a warm place.

    Help, I left my slime out overnight and it turned hard!

    • Depending on how hard your slime is you might be able to rescue it by adding  warm water, lotion, or baby oil (see “Help, my slime is stiff” section).
    • If all of that doesn’t work you will have to say goodbye to your slime :(

    Help, my slime got in contact with fabric and sticks to it!

    • EASY FIX: Since slime is water-soluble it can easily be removed from fabric by washing it in your washing machine or carefully rubbing it out with a wet cloth.
