Slime is easy to make, but it’s important that you read the directions, use the correct ingredients, measure accurately, and have a little patience if you don’t succeed the first time. Remember, it’s a recipe just like baking!
The biggest reason for slime fails is not reading through the recipe! People contact me all the time with: “Why didn’t this work?”
Most of the time the answer has been lack of attention to supplies needed, reading the recipe, and actually measuring the ingredients! So give it a try and do let me know if you need some help. On a very rare occasion I have gotten an old batch of glue, and there is no fixing that!
