The slime craze has hit our house. We’ve made all kinds of slime recipes, both with Borax and without! Our latest version is the best fluffy slime ever, and we had so much fun making and playing with it. My daughter even took it in a plastic bag to play with friends and it was the hit of their tween sleepover. Because of the shaving cream, this fluffy slime has a nice scent and leaves your hands feeling soft and conditioned!
This might just be our favorite slime recipe yet!

- Sta-Flo laundry starch

- Measuring cup
- Large container
- Food coloring (this brand is what we use and it always works great!)
This fluffy slime is made with laundry starch, which does contain some Borax. If you would like a completely Borax-free slime, try this version! Some people have reported itchy skin after mixing shaving cream and laundry starch. However, using the Barbasol white shaving cream seems to lessen any potential reaction. However, if you notice your skin getting itchy or red after playing with this slime, stop immediately. Also remember, brand matter when making slime. Your results will vary if you substitute ingredients, and in some cases, slime might not form at all. Of special importance is the use of Elmer’s school glue for quality, stretchy slime.
Add two, 4 ounce bottles of Elmer’s school glue to a large container. Add whatever food coloring you like. We used pink. We like using this brand of food coloring because it always produces bright colors. Mix.
Add one cup of shaving cream to the glue mixture and stir.
Add about half a cup of the laundry starch to the mixture and stir. It will start to form polymer chains almost immediately. When the first half of the starch is mixed in, add the second half and stir.
At first, it will be stringy, but after about three minutes of mixing, it will become a solid mass of fluffy slime and will no longer be sticky.
The slime is so soft and squish; it’s the best fluffy slime ever!
