    I was disappointed to find that the slime I was hoping to make with my grandaughter didn’t work. I only had white PVA glue and made a trip to Aldi (UK) for their Bio laundry detergent as recommended. I wonder if the formulation of the detergent has changed? We ended up with something which looked like strawberry instant pudding mix before it sets. We enjoyed the pouring and mixing anyway!

      Which slime was it, Sue? None of the slimes are my recipes – I’ve rounded them up from several fellow bloggers’ blogs. I could look into it if you let me know which of the slime recipes you’re referring to.

    We made the slime a few days ago with the detergent (make sure it says gel on it?) from Aldi. at first i thought it hadn’t worked but after stretching the slime over and over again it made a brilliant slime – so good that we made lots of different colours. I tried the clear pritt glue from Asda and some white pva i had lying around. The clear glue was best :)

    made slime for grandkids using liquid starch, clear glue, water, and glitter glue. It was wonderful the first time the kids played with it. We stored it in plastic snack sized containers with tight lids. The next time they played with it, the slime was way too sticky and they were unable to use it. What could have been the cause?

      I’m not sure, Susan. I’ve never made slime. I’ve included it in my round up but it’s from another blog. You could click through on the slime link, and ask the blogger who wrote that post. She might be able to help you.
