How can we help you?
What is included in my package?
All packages come with the items that you’ve purchased, borax powder (used to make slime activator), and a slime care instruction card.
What kind of ingredients are in slime?
Primary ingredients include: Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA), Borax
May also contain: Colorant, Fragrance Oil (may contain peanuts), Mineral Oil, Glycerin, Alumina Silicate, Non-Toxic Craft Materials, Non-Toxic Absorbent Polymers
Slime is not recommended for those with eczema (sensitive skin) or who may have allergic reactions to the ingredients listed above. Slime is recommended for ages 8+ and up.
Are slimes edible?
Slimes are not edible and are for playing purposes only. Never consume slime or any items included with the slime (charms, glitters, add-ons, etc.). It will cause a choking hazard and presumably make you ill.
How long should slimes last?
With proper care, slimes can last for a few months. However, slimes are normal to deflate or melt over time due to the nature of slime ingredients. All slimes expire over time, and it is unavoidable.
To keep your slime in a good state for as long as possible, make sure to wash your hands before playing and play on a clean surface to avoid debris or bacteria from getting into your slime. After playing, store your slime in an airtight container and a cool environment. Reactivate your slime frequently using a slime activator to avoid your slime from melting. If the slime has been in the deflated state for a long time, it may be time for a new slime!
What age is slime good for?
Slime is a fun and therapeutic toy that is recommended for ages 8 and up. Please keep slime away from children under 4 years old as slime poses a risk of choking or accidental ingestion. Slime products should not be given to children under 8 years old without adult supervision.

Slime Questions & Care
What is a slime activator and how does it work?
Slime activator is a liquid solution of borax diluted water that is necessary to create and maintain slime in its proper gooey consistency through chemical reaction.
Every order will be provided with a bag of borax powder and instructions on creating a slime activator to fix sticky slime. Add a few drops of slime activator you’ve created into a sticky slime and knead until you reach your desired consistency. Make sure you don’t add too much activator at once to avoid over-activating your slime.
How do I fix my stiff slime?
Slimes can become stiff and hard especially in colder months due to slime ingredients. However, don’t worry! Multiple ways can easily fix this:
Opaque slimes: Add small amounts of lotion to the slime and knead until you reach the desired consistency.
Clear slimes: Leave the slime in an airtight container in a warm place for a few days for the slime to thaw and soften up.
How do I fix my sticky slime?
Slimes can become sticky especially in hotter months due to slime ingredients. You can fix this by adding a slime activator into your slime and kneading it until you reach the desired consistency. Make sure to not use too much activator as it can result in a stiff slime.

I got slime on my carpet. What should I do?
The easiest way to remove slime stains is by mixing 50% white vinegar with 50% cold water. Spot test the mixture before using on delicate fabrics or surfaces.
Spray the mixture onto the stain and use a soft brush to work slime loose from the carpet. Use a dry paper towel to remove the slime. Repeat this process until the slime is fully off of the carpet or fabric.
I mixed my slime with the add-in and now it is overflowing.
Many of our DIY slimes come with extra ‘add-ins’ that you can mix into the slime. Most DIY slime add-ins come in an 8oz airtight deli container that you can store the extra slime in. If you need more air-tight containers to store your overflowing slime, you can purchase our empty 6oz containers here.
I am purchasing slime for a gift. How early can I buy slime in advance?
Many of our slimes have unique traits and add-ins. We recommend purchasing your slimes closest to the gifting date. Please refer to our shipping method transit times to determine the timeframe of your delivery.
