⭐ QUICK TIPS - Slime Care 

  • Always wash your hands thoroughly before and after playing with your slime! It will help it last longer.
  • Keep the slimes inside a closed container so it doesn’t dry out. Make sure to tightly close the lid!
  • Play with your slime on a clean surface, but stay away from white surfaces as some slimes may cause staining.
  • Keep a bottle of activator handy, so you can reactivate your slime when it becomes sticky.
  • Store your slime in a cool environment and away from direct sunlight. TIP: You can store it in the fridge to minimise melting.


⭐ FAQ

My slime doesn’t look like the one on the website?
The actual colour of your slime may look different to our product photos due to computer setting/lighting. Some of our photos depict slimes fluffed up for demonstrative purposes - please refer to photos of slime fully inside its container for what to expect. Depending on stock and availability of supplies, we may also use alternate ingredients that create slight variations in slime batches.

Will my slime be okay during delivery?
Some sprinkles and charms may sink to the bottom of slimes. Depending on the weather, slimes may arrive slightly melted when it's hot, or a tad stiff when it's too cold. Worry not! Read on below to learn how to take care of them.

My slime is too Sticky!
Add a small amount of Activator and knead it in. However, too much activator will make your slime stiff and rubbery. TIP: You can create a DIY activator by dissolving 1/2 tsp of borax in a 1/2 cup of warm water.

My slime is too Stiff!
If your slime is too hard and rips a lot, it’s over-activated. Warm it up with your hands for a few minutes, or add a small amount of scentless lotion or water and massage it in. Check out our TikTok to learn how https://www.tiktok.com/@scoopislimes/video/7327073576522173704

My Cloud slime feels wet, is that normal?
A key ingredient in cloud slime is water; it is completely normal for cloud slime to feel damp to the touch.

My Clear slime turned cloudy, is that normal?
It’s normal for air bubbles to appear in clear slime when you start playing with it. Let the slime sit in its container for a few days and the slime will clear up again. Careful: adding lotion or playing with dirty hands will result in the clear becoming cloudy!

The Beads in my slime keep falling out!
A little fall out is normal for crunchy slimes like floam or bingsu. If there is excessive fall out, it may be a sign that your slime is over-activated.

How long will my slime last?
If you take really good care of your slime it can last several months!

My slime shrunk, is that normal?
With excessive play, it is normal and to be expected for slime to change in size and texture over time.

Is slime toxic?
Our hand-made slime contains an ingredient called borax (also called sodium tetraborate), which is a common component of many popular deodorants and cleaning products. Borax is not safe to be swallowed or taken. The wellbeing of our customers is paramount, and so we recommend seeking medical help in the instance of ingestion.

Can I get slime out of hair and/or clothes?
Our lovingly made slimes can stick to surfaces which we understand can be frustrating. First, we recommend pulling away as much excess slime from the surface as possible. Then, soak the surface with a combination of hot water and white vinegar (1:2) to loosen the slime and begin scrubbing it gently with a soft brush or an old towel. For hair, using a comb and conditioner for the last bits can be helpful.

How do I know if my slime is ready to be replaced?
Just like food, slime can change over time. The better you take care of your slime, the longer it will last. Your slime might be at the end of its natural life cycle when it just doesn't smell like it used to, and you're missing the fresh feeling of a brand new tub of slime.
