  • 1 airtight container
  • 1 cup white glue
  • 1 cup shaving cream
  • 1 cup foaming hand wash
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp contact solution
  • Foam beads
  • Vanilla scented fragrance
  • Small bowl



  • In a bowl, measure out 1 cup white glue.
  • Add 1 cup shaving cream. Shaving cream is a little funky to measure so a little extra won’t hurt it! :)
  • Mix together and add 1 cup of foaming hand wash.
  • Mix well. Your slime should be super foamy.
  • Add in 1 tsp of cornstarch and about 1 tsp of body lotion. These will help your slime stretch and be fluffy.
  • Pour in a few multi-colored foam beads. You don’t want a ton as these are just the ‘sprinkles’ and don’t want it to turn into a crunchy slime or foam but add to your heart’s desire.
  • Drop a few drops of vanilla fragrance oil in. Your slime will smell just like a delicious cake - and it looks like a fluffy blob of funfetti icing! While it smells and looks, make sure it is not tasted!
  • Next add in ¾ - 1 tsp of baking soda. (Start with ¾ of a tsp and add more during kneading if you need to. Baking soda is what will thicken your slime up.)
  • Finally, add in contact saline solution. Start with 1 tbsp. If you need to add a bit more, you can. Saline solution makes the slime less sticky. You will know you have enough when the slime pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  • Knead the slime.
  • Store in an airtight container.
