  7. Now mix this borax or saline solution water with the glue and stir with a spoon. If need be, use your hands to make sure the mixture is mixed together properly.

The Secret Ingredient

The borax or saline solution is the ingredient that makes the glue turn into the slime. In order to obtain the correct consistency, you may have to experiment with the amount of borax or saline solution that you use. So, for example, if you like your slime to be runny, then don’t use too much borax solution or saline solution. Also, when you first begin to mix the borax or saline solution into the glue you will notice that the slime will be a strange, runny texture but this is normal. The more that you handle the slime, the better the consistency will become.
