Girl burned by homemade slime — GRAPHIC

A close look at the injuries Kathleen Quinn sustained after making

She loved making the slime so much she would sell her slimy creations to kids at her school.

Although in pain, the fifth grader is expected to make a full recovery.

An 11-year-old Rockland, Massachusetts girl woke up at a friend's weekend sleepover party in inexplicable but excruciating pain in her hands.

Kathleen went to the hospital and found out she had second and third-degree burns. "And we looked at them and they were covered in blisters".

A MA girl is recovering after she suffered second and third-degree burns to her hands from the popular do-it-yourself slime project.

"In some ways, I'm not really surprised because, prolonged contact with any kind of chemical can lead to either chemical burns or an allergic reaction", said Dr. Max Gomez.

The doctors determined that Quinn's blisters came from extended exposure to borax one, which is an ingredient in homemade slime.




For their part, Kathleen's doctors think that Quinn had an extreme reaction to Borax, one of the ingredients in the mixture.

Kathleen had been making slime every day for the past few months. "I feel like the worst mother".

Last year Health Canada issued a warning advising Canadians not to use boric acid in homemade craft and pesticide recipes.

She said she's now paranoid about allowing her younger daughter to make any more non-Newtonian fluids.

This week, an expert at Consumer Reports warned parents to be cautious while handling Borax.

Though the recipe Deejay found online called for Borax, it is not easy to find in the United Kingdom because it can cause eye irritation or damage a person's fertility, the Evening News reported. She will recover, but for now has to wear splints on her hands.

Some tutorials on youtube for homemade slime now offer substitutes for Borax like baking soda, salt, or cornstarch. Homemade slime is made by combining water, liquid glue, possibly food coloring, and, of course, Borax. "We made [the slime] a million times, too, and nothing else happened".
