Best Butter Slime - featured


Want to learn how to make slime without borax? Here’s our best butter slime recipe and video for a super soft and stretchy material.



*We all call it shaving cream, but make sure to buy the FOAM kind rather than cream or gel.


  1. Mix glue and shaving cream. Squeeze a large bottle of white Elmer’s School Glue into a medium bowl. Add 1 and 1/4  heaping cups of shaving foam. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Stir in contact solution.  Add 1/8 cup of contact solution and stir. The mixture will come together, become more rubbery, and begin to pull away from the sides of the bowl. (See the video!)
  3. Knead (a lot). Next, knead and pull with your hands until not as sticky (add a bit more shaving cream if necessary). FYI if you have small children, this step could get VERY messy! But keep kneading and pulling and it will eventually come together and stop sticking to everything.
  4. Knead in Model Magic. Add 3 ounces of model magic in your desired colors. Poke and knead, stretch and pull until thoroughly mixed.
  5. Add lotion. Make a dent in the middle of your butter slime and add a scant tablespoon of lotion. Mix until fully incorporated. Store in an airtight container.
