Cette pâte gluante, collante, et sonore date pourtant des années 70-80. Les enfants s'amusent à la malaxer et à la faire glisser entre leurs doigts. Mais même avec ces nouvelles recettes, le slime restera fabriqué à base de produits chimiques: il est donc fortement conseillé de se laver les mains après chaque utilisation. Et il y en a pour tous les goûts: vert fluo-translucide pour les puristes, paillettes et microperles pour les audacieux...

Plus communément appelé borax, l'acide borique peut être utilisé comme antiseptique, insecticide ou désodorisant (au passage, très efficace pour les pieds qui puent!). Gluant, élastique, coloré, le slime, qui signifie "bave " en français, est une pâte que l'on malaxe pour le plaisir et qui inonde les réseaux sociaux. Le mélange est un cocktail chimique toxique qui peut provoquer des brûlures, des cloques, des saignements de nez et autres allergies.

Pour faire face au danger, de nouvelles recettes de "slime" sont proposées. La mère de la petite fille, avait alerté les parents dans la presse britannique, et conseillait plutôt d'utiliser du liquide vaisselle ou de la fécule de maïs en lieu et place du "borax", autre nom donné à l'acide borique.
