Why is my slime SO sticky?!:

If your slime is still too sticky, or becomes sticky over time, then just add a 1/2 Tbsp. of liquid starch to the slime, mix it in well, and you’re ready to play again! This is my son’s secret tip!

What items can I add in my slime?

You can add so much more than buttons to your slime! Large buttons work well for Pete the Cat activities, but you can also add in beads, glitter, foam, small toys, and anything else you would like to add!

How to Store Slime:

You don’t need a special slime container to keep your slime good! This stuff stays good just about forever as long as it is in an airtight sealed container! I’ve had mine sitting on my desk for over 6 months and it’s just fine! Remember, if it’s sticky just use our tip above to fix that!
