A lot are asking if what makes slime stretchy? Slime is stretchable due to the combination of an activator and a polymer. Slime with contact solution, eye drops, saline solution with baking soda, liquid laundry detergent, and borax are all common activators. Body lotion makes the slime stretchy. Add more for extra stretch. If your slime is too sticky, use baby oil. Baby oil makes the slime less sticky so it doesn’t stick to your hands as easily. Slime with cornstarch makes the slime hold its shape.
This technique works with any hand or body lotion. Body butters and ointments, on the other hand, are thicker and should be avoided. This procedure can be used on both new and old slime to help make it stretchier, softer, and stickier.
Using your hands, knead the lotion into the slime. Fold the slime in half, trapping the lotion in the middle, and then press down on the slime. Fold and press down on the slime until all of the lotion has been incorporated.
Experiment with the slime. Stretch and squeeze the slime to see if it has reached its ideal stretchiness level. If the slime is hard to pull or snaps when stretched, this indicates that it is still dehydrated.
Fill a small basin halfway with hot water. Turn on the faucet until the water is heated but not too hot to touch. Fill a small dish halfway with water and set it on the bench.
Dump the slime into the water dish. Submerge your slime ball in the water for around 10 seconds. This allows the slime to absorb a small amount of the liquid. Remove the slime from the water after 10 seconds and place it on a clean surface, such as a bench or table.
Knead the slime with the water. Flatten the slime with the palms of your hands, then fold it in half. Continue flattening and folding the slime until it has absorbed all of the surplus water.
If required, add more water to the slime. Dip the slime in warm water and knead it again if it’s still hard to stretch and breaks readily. Rep this process until the slime reaches your desired stretchiness degree.
