Can you make slime with Mod Podge? Yes you can! This easy Mod Podge slime recipe without Borax only has four ingredients – you probably already have them on hand.
Are you into the slime craze? It seems everyone is! People are buying glue and food coloring by the gallon, amongst other supplies, to make all sorts of fun slime recipes.
You might be wondering if you can make slime with Mod Podge that you already have on hand. After all, it is a glue (sealer and finish!). The answer is yes you can!
Glue, Baking Soda, and Detergent
A basic slime recipe uses white glue and liquid starch, which makes a slime that is . . . slime-y. It's more wet, while we like making smooth slime around here. There's another recipe that uses Borax, which some people don't like using because it can irritate the skin.
This slime is awesome because it's a slime recipe without Borax and it's not as well. You're going to use four ingredients – glue, baking soda, laundry detergent, and food coloring. The “glue” in this recipe is Mod Podge.

Mod Podge Slime Recipe Without Borax
Gather These Supplies
- 1 cup Mod Podge
- Liquid food coloring
- 2 teaspoons + 3 teaspoons of liquid laundry detergent
- 2 teaspoons of baking soda
In a large glass bowl, combine the Mod Podge and a few drops of food coloring until there are no longer any white streaks. Add two teaspoons of liquid laundry detergent and mix well.
Add the baking soda to the mixture and combine until it’s dissolved. Continue to add the liquid laundry detergent to the mixture, one teaspoon at a time until the slime stops sticking to the side of the bowl and starts sticking to itself.
Store your slime in an airtight container to play with again and again. Keep it stored in a cool, dry place for the best results.
If you find your slime is too sticky, add a little bit more banking soda and/or laundry detergent. Continue to mix until you get that smooth slime texture you're looking for!
