Girl suffers third-degree burns after making homemade slime

"It felt like really hot and tingly", Kathleen said.

Kathleen is recovering, but she's missed a week of school and has to sleep with her hands in splints.

An 11-year-old MA girl suffered blistering burns to her hands after making "slime" at her home last week, prompting many to wonder if the popular homemade gooey concoction is safe for children.

When Quinn picked her up the next day, she was crying in pain.

Quinn said other mothers have told her that their children have used Borax to make slime "a million times" with no ill effects.

Kathleen's mother says her daughter had made the slime many times before without any problems.

Siobhan is expected to make a full recovery.

Regarding Borax, Consumer Reports told ABC: '(It) is meant to be a household cleaner or an additive for your laundry.

Doctors said burns and blisters on her hands were due to Borax exposure.

It was determined that the burns came from the extended handling of Borax, which is an ingredient in homemade slime.

Homemade slime has been the latest craze among children in recent months.

Michaels has installed "Slime Headquarters" on aisle endcaps, with displays sporting glue and slime mix-ins like beads and glitter, according to the Associated Press.

"I thought it was great", Siobhan told WCVB.

Both mothers have shared their stories in the hopes of making parents more aware of what can happen when making the concoction. All you need is water, glue, food coloring, and Borax and this colorful "slime" is what you get. D'Stephano said that the videos her daughter found on YouTube showing how to make slime bore no safety warnings.
