Slime is popular and many kids are still obsessed with this goo. But the news story that that popped up on my phone really got my attention. This 11 year old girl named Kathleen Quinn from Rockland, Massachusetts was having fun at a sleepover with some of her friends. They all decided to make slime with borax, glue, etc. When she and her friends were sleeping in the middle of the night, Kathleen woke up and started screaming in pain.Why was she screaming? What happened? Well, since Kathleen and her friends were making slime, maybe it had something to do with that. She ended up having third degree burns on her hands. Doctors say it was too much borax on exposed skin which causes burns. In the article it says when she got the burns it felt tingly, hot and started to bubble. That does not sound good. And when she was done with the slime, she washed her hands many times and she still got burns. In the article they said the girl will recover from the nasty burns. Now the problem is that glue and borax sales have increased because of this DIY slime. But since this incident happened, prices will likely drop for not only borax but glue also because kids will have to find new ways to make slime or they will not make slime at all. Next time you make slime, be very careful. Check out Smoke Signals and look for my article on DIY stress balls and DIY slime!! 🙂  The website I got info from is https://fictionews.com/girl-suffers-third-degree-burns-from-making-slime
