This experiment is a lot like my “Methylcellulose Ooze” page. In fact, the active ingredient in Citrucel, (which is the main ingredient you will be using), is methylcellulose. Note: This recipe only makes a small amount of slime. For a large amount, use (and, yes, this is a lot) 4-1/2 cups of Citrucel to one gallon of water.
What you need:
- Citrucel (you can find this at your local Walgreen’s)
- Microwaveable cup
What to do:
- First, boil about one cup of water in the microwave.
- Now, slowly add 3 tablespoons of Citrucel to the water while stirring quickly.
- Finally, let the solution cool. You can make this faster by placing the glass in a refrigerator. After about 30 minutes, the solution should turn into a sort of gunge. This is your Citrucel Slime!
