Now there’s been a bit of speculation over the internet recently about slime not being safe when made with Borax, but you only use a tiny amount and it’s best to dilute in water before adding to the rest of the mixture. If your super cautious wear rubber gloves while making the slime, just keep an eye open when younger children are making it. Parental supervision is advised.
