Slime is fun to play with. While the most common recipe calls for glue and borax, there are other ways to make slime that don't use glue. Some recipes use simple ingredients, such as dish soap and cornstarch. Some other recipes use surprising ingredients, such as yogurt! The slime made from these methods might not last as long as regular slime, but it's easy to make and fun while it lasts!

Using Dish Soap and Cornstarch

  1. Squeeze 1½ tablespoons (22.5 milliliters) of dish soap into a bowl. You can use more dish soap to make more slime, but you'll need to add more cornstarch as well.
    • Consider using some colored or scented dish soap. For a more traditional slime, consider green dish soap.
    • You can also use shampoo instead of dish soap. The thicker the shampoo, the better!
  2. Stir in some food coloring or glitter, if desired. You don't have to do this, but it will make your slime more interesting. If you used clear dish soap, add in a drop of food coloring. If you want sparkly slime, add in a pinch of glitter. Stir everything together with a spoon.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons (15 grams) of cornstarch into a mixing bowl. This will thicken the dish soap and turn it into slime!
    • If you used more dish soap, you will need to use more cornstarch.
    • If you can't find cornstarch, use cornflour instead.
  4. Stir everything together for about 10 seconds. As you stir, the dish soap and cornstarch will come together and react to form slime!
  5. Finish kneading the slime by hand. At some point, the dish soap will have picked up all the cornstarch it can. Once that happens, dig in with your hands, and knead it with your fingers until everything comes together.
    • If the slime is too runny, add more cornstarch. If the slime is too thick, add more dish soap.
  6. Play with the slime. Let it run through your fingers. When you are done playing with it, put it into an airtight container. Keep in mind that this slime won't last forever, and that it will eventually dry out.

Using Yogurt and Cornstarch

  1. Scoop 1 tablespoon (15 grams) of yogurt into a bowl. Plain, unsweetened yogurt is best for this. You can use any type of yogurt you want, but make sure that it is smooth, with no chunky bits of fruit in it.
    • You can use more yogurt to make more slime. Plan on using 1 part yogurt and 3 parts cornstarch.
  2. Add some food coloring, if desired. You don't have to do this, but it could make your slime look more interesting. Add in a drop or two of food coloring, then stir it in with a spoon.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons (22.5 grams) of cornstarch. The cornstarch will cause the yogurt to thicken up and turn to slime! If you used more yogurt, you will need to use 3 times the amount of cornstarch.
    • If you can't find cornstarch, use cornflour instead.
  4. Stir everything together. Once the ingredients start to leave the sides of the bowl, you can start kneading it by hand. Keep stirring and kneading until the ingredients come together and form a glob of slime.
  5. Play with the slime. Poke it, stretch it, let it run through your fingers. Even though both ingredients are edible, it is not recommended that you gobble this up! When you are done playing with it, put it into an airtight container and store it in the fridge. Keep in mind that this slime will eventually go bad. Once it starts to smell or look funny, throw it out!

Using Psyllium Husk

  1. Combine 1 tablespoon and 1 cup (240 milliliters) of water in a bowl. Measure out 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk and pour it into a bowl. Add 1 cup (240 milliliters) of water.
    • You can find psyllium husk in the health section of your grocery store. You can also find it in a health food store.
  2. Allow the mixture to soak for 5 minutes. As it soaks, you may notice that it starts to thicken. Don't worry if it looks too runny at this point.
  3. Add some color, if desired. You can leave your slime clear, if you want to, or you can add in some food coloring to make it look more interesting. Gel-based food coloring will work the best, but you could try liquid if you have nothing else.
    • Do not add glitter. You will need to microwave this.
  4. Stir the mixture with a spoon. Keep stirring until the texture is consistent. If you added food coloring, keep stirring until the color is even and no streaks remain.
  5. Microwave the slime for 5 minutes. Do not step away from the microwave. Keep a close eye on the slime. When it starts to bubble over, pause the microwave, and let the slime "deflate". When the slime is level again, start the microwave up again, and let it finish heating.
    • You may have to pause the microwave more than once.
  6. Chill the slime in the fridge. When you take the bowl out of the microwave, you will be left with an icky, gooey, and somewhat-chunky slime. It is a little too hot to play with, however, so tuck it into the fridge to cool off. This may take a couple of minutes.
  7. Play with the slime. This slime is thick, gooey, and jiggly. You can even add some items into it, such as googly eyes. When you are done playing with the slime, put it into an airtight container.
