When you buy slime for the first time in its natural form, you might find its smell unpleasant. Although it’s dependent on your ingredients, the scent is usually a plastic and glue fragrance, if you can imagine what that would smell like. Not particularly pleasant. Although note that some would describe the smell as soapy and actually prefer it. If you’re sensitive to smells, you may dislike playing with slime that produces a scent you aren’t fond of. In order to enjoy your experience with slime, you will need to scent it up. There’s a variety of scents that are popular among slime including bubblegum, chocolate, strawberry, cotton candy, peppermint and coconut, among others. These scents are produced by essential oils and will blend easily with slime.
This happens to be one of the cheapest ways to make your slime. You can make a batch of slime then once you have it already prepared, you can add some rock salt in it to make it crunchy. You can either use the naturally occurring rock salt or you could go for the colored ones. Colored rock salt creates beautiful, highly reflective slimes that you will have fun squishing. It makes for an amazing sensory activity and works as a perfect seasonal science.
Regardless of the recipe you are trying to achieve, how many ingredients you mix up for your slime, the process or the outcome, there’s no need to feel like there is a right way to make your slime. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You only need the pop, color, fluff, shimmer or crunch that works for your specific goal.
