Clean those hard to reach places with this fabulous homemade cleaning slime recipe! This simple do it yourself recipe catches dirt and grime from hard to reach places such as keyboards, mobile phones, printers and vents. It dries out quickly so be sure to store it in a sealed container.

A quick note about the ingredients- Borax is a laundry booster and can be found in the detergent aisle of most major grocery stores.


You’ll Need:
2 tablespoons of white School glue (such as Elmers)
1 Tbs water

4 Tbs Borax
4 Tbs Water

In a small dish combine the school glue and 1 Tbs of water, mixing well. In another small bowl combine 4 Tbs Borax and 4 Tbs Water, mixing well until the borax dissolves.

Combine the ingredients from both bowls and immediately stir well, creating awesome cleaning slime. If you want Colored slime, you can add a drop or two of food coloring to the water in the “glue” dish prior to mixing.

Play with the slime until it’s no longer wet, You don’t want it to be dripping, you want it to just feel “damp”. This process is great for the kids, let them handle it with clean dry hands, until it no longer feels gritty and is nice and smooth and very lightly damp. At this point, if you place it on a piece of paper for about 10 seconds, it won’t leave a spot or residue.

To use, apply it to your keyboard or vents, then gently pull off.

  1. i have everything i need to make this. will let you know how it works for me. four keyboards and lots of hard to get to spaces.

    thanks.

  2. this sounds like a form of silly putty and seems like it will do an amazing job for cleaning the nasty little corners in the non removable section of the console in my car! thank you for sharing it!

  3. how long does it last and can you keep it a jar till the next time you need it. there is only me so i don’t have that many cracks and crevices to clean or keyboards.

    :loveshower:

  5. couldn’t sleep tonight and kn reading e-mails i discovered budget 101. Now I am so involved I think it will be some time before I’ll be able to get off, Have really enjoyed the post I’ve read so far. I can’t wait to try several of them tomorrow.

  6. i was so wanting to make this for my husband for christmas! guess what he’s getting for valentine’s day! (he’s a computer guy so he’ll love it!)

  7. i am wondering how long it will stay good in a sealed jar. i would love to make and take to work to clean the vents on my semi.

  8. dengit, i don’t have any gluuuuuuuue around.
    < adds it to my list:
    [ ] white vinegar
    [ ] big box of baking soda
    [ ] huuge bottle of hydrogen peroxide

  9. used to make this for daycare kids-called it flubber.
    make sure to pour liquid mixture into glue slowly and keep stirring!

  11. Thank you. I have purchased this kind of thing before and it is expensive. I am looking forward to replacing it for a lot less.

  12. this looks like fun, cant wait to try it my vents and keyboard are quite nasty at this moment!
    is it reusable? can you throw it in a ziploc bag and store it?

  13. this sounds great. i will make some soon. i have also tried using used post-it notes to stick between keys on my keyboard.

    picks up more things than a vacuum.

  14. I’ve made this before and love it…it’s a hit at work too! Does anyone have any suggestions for fully diluting the borax….mine stays a bit chunky and I don’t think it should…. I’ve even put the powder in my bullet before adding water….no good…still crunchy.

    🙁 it eventually mixes is…but it’s frustrating till then.

      Sorry – not an answer, but I’m having the same problem. Curious to see if anyone has any solutions…

  15. I’ve been wanting this to be a homeschool thing the kids and I make. I might do this this week and see if I can trick them into cleaning. *insert maniacal laugh*
