What in the world is slime? These slime videos have gone viral the past year and we have no idea why. There are hundreds (maybe even thousands) of slime videos out in the YouTube world!
Supposedly, these slimes help with anxiety, relieve stress, and relax people. I’m not sure if that’s true; it’s probably the same reason why people play with stress balls. It’s weirdly sensual and one of those things you can’t stop watching. We honestly just felt extremely confused while watching people squish and mold their slime for 10 minutes straight.
So of course, we had to give it a try.
After making it, I think we finally understand why people have been (or are) obsessed with slime. Honestly, we really can’t deny the fact that the slime was strangely satisfying to poke, squish, and play with.
We’re pretty late on hopping on this trend, but if you’re really bored and live near any Target, Walmart, Michael’s etc. it’s a great DIY to kill some time.
What you need:
- Contact solution with Sodium Tetraborate (Borax)
- Baking soda
- Elmers glue
- Food dye
Mix everything together and you’re done! Here’s a video of us almost failing at making slime:
