Step 1: Mix your 3 main ingredients

Pour the ingredients into a bowl. It doesn’t matter in what order. For this sand slime recipe we used:

  • 6oz clear PVA glue
  • 1 tablespoon of contact lens solution
  • 1/2 tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda

You need to make sure you buy contact lens solution with Boric Acid and Sodium Borate or your slime will not work. Don’t worry about being super exact about the measurements.
