More About Glow in the Dark Slime

Slime is fun to play with for almost everyone, regardless of age, especially if it lights in the dark. Making your own slime elevates the experience even further.

Slime may be made in a variety of methods, and you can play with with different components and ingredient proportions to get different textures, colors, and consistency.

Making Borax or Liquid Starch Slime

  1. Fill a medium-sized bowl halfway with boiling water. It is not necessary for the water to be boiling hot, but it should be warm to the touch.

2. Pour in the transparent glue. White glue can also be used, although the color of the slime will be less vibrant.

  • Choose a non-toxic adhesive, especially if the slime may be handled by children.

3. Stir in the glow-in-the-dark paint until it is completely combined. Glow-in-the-dark paint is available at most craft stores and in the crafts area of big retailers.

  • As an alternative to paint, highlighter ink can be used. Simply peel the highlighter’s bottom off and drop the ink filament into the dish of hot water and borax. Squeeze the filament with a gloved hand to extract the ink. 
  • If you use highlighter ink, be in mind that it may only glow under a blacklight.

4. To the separate basin of hot water, add the borax (available in most laundry aisles). Stir everything together.

  • You can replace the borax and water with 1/2 cup (125 ml; 4.2 fl oz) liquid starch, which is also available in the laundry aisle.

5. Incorporate the borax solution. 2 tablespoons at a time, add the borax solution to the paint solution, stirring constantly until desired consistency is attained.

6. Store in an airtight container or a zipper bag. If you don’t properly preserve the slime, it will dry out.

  • If desired, leaving the slime in an open container overnight might help the consistency become more rubbery.

7. Finished! Take pleasure in your glow-in-the-dark slime!

Making Cornstarch Slime

  1. Fill a medium basin halfway with cornstarch. You can also use less cornstarch to make a slime that is more liquid.
  • This slime is safe for small children because it is made using cornstarch rather than borax or liquid starch.

2. Pour the water into the cornstarch basin. To blend, stir with a spoon or your hands.

3. Place the craft paint on top. Continue stirring until you reach the desired consistency. Glow-in-the-dark craft paint can be found in most craft stores and the crafting sections of many larger retailers.

  • You can color your slime with the ink from a highlighter instead of using glow-in-the-dark paint. Pry the bottom of a highlighter off and place the ink filament inside the highlighter tube in the water and cornstarch basin. Squeeze the filament with a gloved hand to extract the ink.
  • If you use highlighter ink, be in mind that it may only glow under a blacklight.
  • You can also add droplets of food coloring to modify the color of the slime, but keep in mind that this will reduce the shine of the slime.

4. Finished! Take pleasure in your glow-in-the-dark slime!

Making Epsom Salt Slime

  1. In a medium mixing basin, combine the water and Epsom salt. Stir until the Epsom salt has completely dissolved in the water.

2. Stir in the liquid glue until everything is well combined. Clear glue produces a more vibrant color of slime than white glue.

  • If there will be tiny children involved, make sure to use non-toxic glue.

3. Place the craft paint on top. Stir to combine the ingredients and keep stirring until the required consistency is reached.

  • Craft paint can be replaced with highlighter ink. Simply remove the ink filament from a highlighter and drop it into the slime concoction. Squeeze the ink filament with gloves on to get the ink out.
  • However, highlighter ink may only shine when exposed to a blacklight.

4. Finished! Take pleasure in your glow-in-the-dark slime!

Removing Slime Stain

No one likes a slimy mess, especially when it’s a stain on their clothes. Getting slime out of fabric can be a daunting task, but with the right techniques it can be done. The first step is to identify the type of slime that is causing the problem. There are many types of slime, from the kind that comes from a slug or snail, to the kind that is made in a lab. Each type of slime has its own unique properties and will require a different approach for removal.

If the slime is coming from an animal, try gently scraping off as much as possible before treating the stain with a gentle detergent. Some people have had success using white vinegar or lemon juice to remove animal-based slime stains, but always test these solutions on an inconspicuous area of the fabric first.

Steps on Removing Slime Stain

  1. Clear the furnishings of any remaining slime. To remove the slime off a piece of furniture, use your fingers or the back of a butter knife. Scrape up the slime by pressing the back of the butter knife against the furniture and moving it in one direction. Remove any filth and throw it away.
  • If the slime is very stubborn, cool it with an ice cube or an ice pack before attempting to remove the slime chunks.
  • If you use the serrated part of a knife, or even a sharp, flat-edged knife, you risk damaging your furniture.
  1. On a clean cloth, pour some distilled water. Because distilled water lacks the minerals found in tap water, it is less prone to discolor furniture. Moist a clean washcloth with enough distilled water to get it wet, then wring away the excess water .
  • If water alone isn’t effective, try blotting with a 50/50 combination of water and vinegar. However, test this on a hidden area of the furniture first because vinegar might stain some types of fabric.
  1. With the moist towel, blot any apparent spots. Place the moist cloth over the stain and gently press it in place with your hand. Pick it up after pushing it once. Then flip it over or find a clean part of the same-side fabric and press it against the stain once again .
  • Continue doing so until the stain is totally gone.

It’s challenging enough to keep your house clean on a regular basis without having to cope with unforeseen situations like slime stains. Do you have any secrets on how to remove slime stains? Share your thoughts.
