Julia’s Care Sheet
Remember our slime is not edible! Always keep your slime away from small children and pets as it can be dangerous for them!
Our slime is made with love and care just for you and it needs your love and care once it leaves our hands. This Care Sheet tells you how to do that.
Always keep your slime in your tub with the lid on when you are not playing with it. This will make it last longer.
Play with your slime for a moment once still in the container before taking it out to assure the right consistency.
If your slime is too sticky. Your slime may arrive sticky or become sticky once you’ve played with it. There are many things that might make your slime sticky, such as the temperature, your body heat and even how dry your skin is.
The perfect feel. To get the perfect feel for your slime, firstly make sure that your hands are clean. In fact, wash them anyway and apply some hand/body lotion. Your slime will stick to your hands if your hands are very warm, not clean or if your skin is dry.
Leave your slime in its tub and gently push your fingers into it to feel how sticky it is.
If it feels too sticky, do the following: For CLEAR slime, add a few drops of activator to your hands and then touch the slime. For any other type of slime, add the one or two drops of activator directly onto the slime in the tub and gently fold the activator into the slime in the tub. If your slime still feels too sticky for your liking, add one or two drops again (remember – onto your hands for CLEAR slime and into the tub for all other types of slime). Keep doing this until the slime has the perfect feel in your hands. Clear slime can also become ‘melted’ (very liquid) if it’s been exposed to a lot of heat (like on a hot day). This is very easy to fix! Pour the mixture into a medium mixing bowl and stir in a few drops of activator at a time until it forms a perfect blob of slime again. Leave it untouched for a few days to clear up again.
Very important note:Too much activator will ruin your slime! If you add too many drops of activator, your slime will lose all its stretch and break apart when you pull it. So go really slowly when you adjust your slime’s stickiness.
Activator. Now that you know what to do with activator, here’s how you mix it (you might also receive the activator ready-made in a tiny bottle) Take the small packet of white powder (the packet contains half a teaspoon of borax powder) and add all of it to ½ cup of hot water and stir until it is completely dissolved. Now you have your own activator. Make sure your activator solution has cooled down before adding it to your slime.
Training your slime:
Play with your slime quickly, it could run between your fingers. A good idea is to play with a little bit first, before you try putting all of it in your hands.
Don’t mix your slime with other slimes and don’t add other ingredients to it. Our slime does not like that.
If your slime is runny or more sticky than usual on a hot day, put your slime tub in the fridge for about 10 minutes before you play with it.
If your slime is less stretchy on a cold day, put it in a microwavable bowl (pour it out of the plastic tub into a microwave bowl first) and heat it for 10 to 15 seconds before you play with it.
Slime being naughty:
So, your slime might slip through your fingers onto your clothes or the carpet… don’t worry. Your slime will not stain anything and can be removed with just a normal wash. Just try to remove it imidietly do not wait until will dry up as it will be much harder to remove and might require some soaking in hot water and soap.
Slime does not like paper. You cannot remove it from paper, sorry.
Try always to play with your slime on a clean surface on the table or a clean plastic tray.
Be carful not to drop it. If you drop your slime and will get dirty will not be suitable to play with any more.
Don’t eat your slime, it’s not food.
Some adult help. There are a few things you need to do that might require the help of an adult, such as using hot water to mix the activator or the microwave to heat your slime. Please ask your parents to read this too and help you with those things.
