Q: Are Borax and Boric Acid Interchangeable? Can I Substitute One for the Other?

A: Borax and boric acid are not the same chemical; borax [Na2B4O7·10H2O or Na2[B4O5(OH)4]·8H2] is a salt of boric acid [B(OH)3]. When you dissolve borax in water, it forms boric acid and also the borate ion. If you have boric acid instead of borax, it can be used for slime, but the recipe is somewhat different. Either dissolve the boric acid in water (if it's a powder) or else use buffered saline solution (i.e., for contact lenses). Mix the liquid with white school glue and a bit of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). You can color the slime if you like. This slime will be less gooey and more stretchy or putty-like than borax slime.

 

Q: What makes slime last longer?

A: If you have to use borax, it will take 4-5 days to lose its stickiness. Borax is good forsquishy slime, but not ideal for long staying slime or super stretchy slime. Use liquid starch when you want your slime to last longer. When using clear glue, use less food dye than when white glue.
