Cleaning up after messy summer crafts, like DIY slime (which my family loves to make), can be a pain to tackle – from sticky glue to spilled glitter and food coloring – floors can be left a disaster. If you happen to make slime over carpet, there is a simply solution: rip up the carpet, throw it away, and get a hard floor. If you alread have a hard floor, there is an even simplier solution: the EasyWring™ Spin Mop & Bucket System by O-Cedar – a fun and effortless way to tackle any deep or quick cleaning floor tasks. Now your kids can have a blast making any sticky slime concoction they want, and you don’t have to worry about the fall out (unless you still have carpet) thanks to the EasyWring Spin Mop & Bucket System.
The exclusive spin bucket design with built-in wringer controls the moisture level of the mop, making it safe to use on all hard floor surfaces, even hardwood (so you have plenty of options when you get rid of your carpet)! The cool spinning action of EasyWring’s bucket and the effortless foot pedal is so fun to use kids will want to help mom or dad clean up after they’re done making their slime! Yes, cleaning can be a summer activity in itself!
The hands-free wringer eliminates the need to bend down to wring water out a mop (which is great if you have back issues, like me) and requires little effort to use, simply press the foot pedal (no more wringing out the mop!). It also controls the amount of water you use, meaning faster drying (and streak-free) floors resulting in a more efficient quick and effortless deep cleaning experience! O-Cedar has a full range of household cleaning products that can help tackle above the floor messes too.
Now that you are empowered to tackle the after slime mess, here is a recipe from Elmer’s Glue to get your summer slime fun rolling!
Elmer’s Recipe for Colored Slime
1/2 tbsp of baking soda
1 tbsp of contact lens solution
4 fl oz Elmer’s White school glue
Your choice of food coloring
1. Pour out the entire bottle of a 4oz of Elmer’s School Glue into a bowl.
2. Add ½ tbsp of baking soda and mix thoroughly.
3. After mixing, add your choice of food coloring until you get the color you want.
4. Add 1 tbsp of contact lens solution.
5. Mix until mixture gets harder to mix and slime begins to form.
6. Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands.
7. If needed, add ¼ tbsp of contact lens solution to make the slime less sticky.
*Adult supervision is required; This project is not appropriate for children under the age of 3 years. Always wash your hands before and after making and playing with slime. Warning: If large quantities of contact lens solution are accidentally ingested (greater than a tablespoon), get medical attention immediately.
