Slime, Gunk, and Flubber

By January 7, 2006

Follow me on:

Have you ever noticed how many names there are for 'slime'? Do you know the difference between slime, gunk, and flubber? Slime is... well... slimey. Gunk is like slime, except not as wet and gooey. Flubber is more elastic and even drier. All three types are pretty much non-toxic and can be colored, if you don't want natural goo.
  • Make Slime - the classic recipe.
  • Make Electroactive Slime - normal slime you play with using your hands. This slime reacts to styrofoam.
  • Make Gunk - easiest goo to make with common kitchen ingredients.
  • Make Flubber - slightly more complex to make, but makes an excellent gelatinous ooze.
