Avoid wood glue slime recipes with Borax
Borax and wood glue make an amazing combination for homemade slime. However, Borax can lead to an allergic reaction. The allergic reaction to Borax doesn’t necessarily show off immediately.

After stirring energetically for less than a minute or so, you will notice that the slime’s texture has changed from the addition of the liquid detergent.
It will become more rubbery and stirring will get harder. Mind that the slime mixture should not feel too solid. You may need to add another spoon of the liquid detergent.

Once you reach the right texture, you know it’s time for kneading the slime manually. Yep, just as if you are kneading the dough. Place the slime on an old plastic bag and use your hands to knead it well.
However, you may continue directly with stretching the slime as if you are stretching a chewing gum, instead of kneading it. Good job!
At the end of this tutorial, we hope to have inspired you that making slime with wood glue is an easy and enjoyable tiny DIY craft. Have fun by involving your kids in the process, too. Just make sure you instruct your kids to wash their hands thoroughly and avoid swallowing any of the slimes.
