Slime Likes To Rest
Many types of slime are not feeling their best the day they are made. The day after slime is made, your slime is usually a better texture. Clear slime needs to rest for weeks before it make it to your door. When clear slime is made or used in play, bubbles are produced causing your slime to be foggy. Once clear slime has had time to sit for a long period of time, the bubbles rise and the slime will become clear once again.
Icee Slime and Jelly Slimes
These slimes are made with instant snow. As you play with these types of slime, your warm hands may slightly melt the snow causing a sticky feeling. A small amount of activator may need to be kept nearby while playing with these slimes. Activator will help with the stickiness, and return your slime to it’s original state.
Some slimes are more holdable than other slimes, meaning they will not drip but instead hold their shape when held. Butter slimes and Snow Fizz slimes are typically very holdable and make great choices for younger slimers.
