Picture of Unusual Use of Baking Soda and Tide for a Sparkly Slimy Summer

Slime fascinates me. Who isn't fascinated by it at 11? I was the one who started the slime fad at my school. After reading stories of accidents involved making slime with borax, I was determined to make perfect slime with perfectly safe household ingredients. After several trials with different things in our house, now I can make super cool slime every time using baking soda, Tide, and glitter glue of course. In this Instructable, I'm going to show you how to make sparkly slime so get ready for the fun!

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

Picture of Ingredients and Tools


1/4 cup Elmer's Classic glitter glue

1 tbsp baking soda

1 tsp Tide Clean Breeze detergent

1 tsp water


Not much, just 1/4 cup measuring cup, measuring spoons, a cup or bowl and a stick to stir.

what do you add if its too sticky?
