Teens Have Invented The Best Form Of Self Care And It's Slime

By Jaime Lutz

If you were a fan of Nickelodeon growing up then there's a good chance you were obsessed with slime. Slime everything. Slime at awards shows, slime during trivia programs, slime during competitions, whatever was going on in that channel and it involved a live studio audience and some people, you best believe that someone was getting covered in green goo. And as gross as it sounds, there's something that's inherently comforting about slime. Maybe it's because it reminds us of the womb and the amniotic fluid we were floating around in, or maybe it's because we grew up associating it with our favorite childhood shows, but whatever the reason, '90s kids absolutely love and adore slime and everything slime related.

Remember seeing commercials for Floam when you were a kid? It and other kinds of slimes are back in a big way with teens—but this time, it's all homemade, and colored like Tumblr aesthetic in a jar, and used for anxiety relief and ASMR. Basically, it's the most Generation Z thing I've ever seen, and I love it.
