You can make a great fluffy slime using a few simple ingredients.

Here’s another easy slime recipe without borax but using soap or body wash
Add body wash to a bowl. Start with a small amount ( 2 tablespoons of shampoo). Add more if you want to make a bigger batch.
Add food coloring. Continue adding until you achieve the desired color.
Mix both until texture is smooth
You will need about the same amount of cornstarch as the body wash.
Mix ingredients well
When ingredients are mostly mixed, but you still have a floury consistency, pick up and mix together with hand .it may seem like you have added too much cornstarch. But don’t worry, just continue mixing with hands until you get the slimey texture.
Optional: Add water to make your slime more stretchy ( not too much)
Store slime in an airtight container for later usage.
Step 1: Add cornstarch and conditioner into the bowl.
Step 2: Mix ingredients until you are satisfied with the texture
step 3: add food coloring
1 cup Gummy bears
3 Tablespoons Cornflour
food coloring (optional)
4 tablespoons icing sugar
2 Tablespoons icing sugar
Put gummy bear in a bowl and add the cornflour
Microwave for 30 seconds
Take out from microwave and stir for 30 seconds
Put back in the microwave for 1 minute and you can see bubbles appearing
Put food coloring (optional)
Knead in the icing sugar and let it cool
Be careful as the sugar can be very hot from the microwave
This gummy bear is very stretch but can be very sticky, you might need some icing sugar to stop it from sticking on your fingers.
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
4 Tablespoons Nutella
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups icing sugar
Put condensed milk, cornflour, and Nutella into a pan and stir it over high heat until it boils.

The recipes above are simple slime recipes. However, there are also slimes made with activators. So let me now explain to you what an activator means.
A Slime activator is a liquid that brings the glue together to form the Slime.
This is banned in certain countries. Usually, this is added into a cup of water and there is your activator to give the slime a nice stretchy texture
2. Laundry Detergent
Liquid Laundry Detergent is also a slime activator. All you do is slowly add it in and your slime will form nicely.
3. Contact Lens Solution & Baking Soda
This is one of the most commonly used activator when making slime.
All you need to do is add baking soda to your glue mixture. Then squirty into a contact lense solution. Mix until your slime is formed
Borax power seems to be the most favorite slime activator.
Here’s the easiest mess-free slime recipe that you will ever make
Place the glue in a plastic bowl.
Add food coloring
mix until combined.
Then stir in 1-2 cups of shaving cream.
The more you add the thicker it will be.
Stir until it’s very thick and you can’t stir any longer. It will be sticky at first, but keep moving it with your hands until it is no longer sticky and is the right consistency.
