Questions about slimes and slime care

How long do slimes last?

With proper care, slimes can last from months to years. However, it is normal for slimes to shrink over time due to the slime ingredients being removed from the air or liquid escaping.

To keep your slime in good condition for as long as possible, be sure to wash your hands before playing and only play with it on a clean surface to avoid dirt or bacteria getting into your slime. We also recommend not playing with the same slime for more than 20 minutes a day to avoid it hardening quickly. After playing, store your slime in an airtight container and a cool environment. Reactivate your slime with slime activator if necessary to avoid your slimes melting. For more handling tips, see the Slime Care Sheets .

My slime has gotten smaller. Why is that?

It is normal for slimes to become smaller over time due to the slime components as the air is removed or liquid escapes. This happens faster or slower depending on how often and how it is used. We recommend not playing with the same slime for more than 20 minutes a day. However, you can make the slime bigger again by making it fluffy, i.e. by adding air.

For what age is Slime recommended?

Slime is suitable from the age of 4, but only under adult supervision. At older ages and depending on the child's developmental stage, no supervision is necessary. Apart from that, slime is also ideal for adults to reduce stress or keep the hands busy. Slime can also be used at any age for therapeutic purposes after hand surgery, for example.

What is activator?

Slime activator is water with dissolved borax powder. It is used when slime is runny or sticky. Add as many drops of activator to your slime until the desired consistency is achieved. Knead the activator in well. Make sure you do not add too much activator at once to avoid overactivating the slime.

How do I fix my slime if it has hardened?

Slimes can become hard, especially in colder months, due to the nature of the ingredients. If the slime has become hard due to the outside temperature, leave it at room temperature or in a warm room for 1-3 days. If the texture of the slime is still too hard after that, it helps to put the slime in its closed container on a heater. However, do not leave the slime on a hot heater for too long, otherwise it will become too runny. Another tip for preventing hard slime is to add a few drops of pure glycerin to the slime.
