Make your own slime

Hi,
Does anyone have any recipes for making slime. Have been trying to make some for my daughter with glue, baking soda and contact lense solution but having no luck.
Just a sticky mess.

I found this but not sure if it's what you're after as I'm a little too old for slime

Slime recipe
May sound odd but try another brand of PVA glue. We made some and the first couple of batches were a bit wrong (to say the least) We found Tesco's to work well.
Bicarbonate of soda (not baking powder) and a few small squeezes of contact lens solution (must contain boric acid- we used Boots' own brand)
My own attempt (with added food colour and glitter of course!)

Using some glue off amazon. Changed contact lense solution to boots own instead of Specsavers. Still no good. Will try changing glue.

Make sure the contact lens solution has boric acid amongst it's ingredients.

Probably cheaper and easier to just buy some slime..
Buy boric acid off ebay, it's about a fiver for 500g or cheaper for smaller amounts.
It oozes outta my TV set:

You are using bicarbonate of soda? You mentioned in op that you were using baking soda (powder?)

Yes. Bicarbonate of soda. I'm using saline solution which I think is wrong one. Will try different lens solution.

Yes, saline is the wrong type. Need the more multi purpose type containing boric acid. Some eye drops work too.

but she still hasn’t found a recipe!!

It will work. My lad had been slime mad for months now and the only way we got it to work was with borax.
I bought a slime factory kit off eBay £23! For my niece and nephew's Christmas present...

Waste of money, and I'm returning it asap..

So looking for some slime ingredients and recipes also...

I've read use food colouring gel instead of liquid...

Have seen shaving foam can be used...

Not sure of how or which or whatever
