Slime Care

Our slime is made with love and care just for you and it needs your love and care once it leaves our hands. This Care Sheet tells you how to do that.

  1.  Always play with clean hands!

    Wash your hands really well and scrub under your nails with soap before and after playing. Also ALWAYS wash the surface you put your slime on before and after playing! If you don't play with clean hands and on clean surfaces, mould can develop on the slime and the slime will gets dirty.
     

  2. MUST wash your hands after playing with slime!

    Coco Slimes made slime with non-toxic ingredients but they are not food! 
     

  3. ​MY SLIME IS STICKY:

Your slime may arrive sticky or become sticky once you’ve played with it. There are many things that might make your slime sticky, such as the temperature, your body heat and even how dry your skin is.

HOW TO GET THE PERFECT FEEL:

To get the perfect feel for your slime, firstly make sure that your hands are clean. In fact, wash them anyway and apply some hand lotion (do not apply lotion if you are playing with clear slime). Your slime will stick to your hands if your hands are very warm, not clean or if your skin is dry. 

Leave your slime in its tub and gently push your fingers into it to feel how sticky it is.

If it feels too sticky, do the following: add a few drops of activator ('activator' is a solution of borax powder and water - it turns slime less sticky)(WARNING: Borax activator solution should not be ingested.) onto the slime in the tub and gently mix the activator into the slime in the tub. If your slime still feels too sticky, add one or two drops again. Keep doing this until the slime has the perfect feel in your hands. Clear slime can also become 'melted' (very liquid) if it's been exposed to a lot of heat (like on a hot day). This is very easy to fix! Pour the mixture into a medium mixing bowl and stir in a few drops of activator at a time until it forms a perfect blob of slime again. Leave it untouched for a few days to get rid of the air bubbles

 

​HERE IS A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Too much activator will ruin your slime. If you add too many drops of activator, your slime will break apart when you pull it. So go really slowly when you adjust your slime’s stickiness. However, if you add too much activator, your slime can be fixed. Just add some lotion, shampoo, or conditioner and knead the slime until you have the perfect feel again!

HOW TO PLAY WITH SLIME:

  1. ​Play with your slime quickly, it could run between your fingers. A good idea is to play with a little bit first, before you try putting all of it in your hands.

  2. Always keep your slime in your tub with the lid on when you are not playing with it.

  3. Don’t mix your slime with other slimes and don’t add other ingredients to it. Our slime does not like that.

  4. If your slime is runny or more sticky than usual on a hot day, put your slime tub in the fridge for about 10 minutes before you play with it.

 

NAUGHTY SLIME?:

  1. ​So, your slime might slip through your fingers onto your clothes or the couch...don’t worry. Your slime will not stain anything and can be removed with just a normal hand wash. If the slime is dried up, soften the slime by soaking the article in warm water and hand wash .

  2. Slime does not like paper. You cannot remove it from paper.

  3. Don’t eat your slime, it’s not food!

 

ADULT HELP:

There are a few things you need to do that might require the help of an adult, such as using hot water to mix the activator or handling Borax. Please ask your parents to read this too and help you with those things.
