Little Girl Sustains 3rd Degree Burns While Making Homemade Slime

Kathleen Quinn's hands were covered in second and third-degree burns after she made homemade slime at her house in Rockland, Massachusetts.

As CBS2's Valerie Castro reported, Siobhan Quinn is warning everyone to watch out after what happened to her 11-year-old daughter, Kathleen.

"She was like crying in pain, 'My hands hurt, my hands hurt, ' " Siobhan Quinn, Kathleen's mother, told CBS.

"The doctor's said that her hands reacted to the chemicals in the slime after prolonged exposure".

"From constantly handling it, it just, I think, did a number on her skin". Kathleen is expected to make a full recovery.

When you set out of make slime, it's important to dilute Borax with water before you start playing around with it, so it's likely that Kathleen didn't dilute the Borax properly or that had a specific allergy to the substance.

The most common recipe for slime involves just three ingredients: Elmer's Glue, the household cleaner Borax, and water.

The concerned mother is not the first to speak out about the dangers of making homemade slime.

Borax, also known as sodium tetraborate, is a short-term irritant when exposed to skin or eyes.

"Just because you have it around, just because it seems to be perfectly safe for those types of applications doesn't mean it should be used in anything else, particularly household slime", Dickerson told WCVB last week. Doctors, however, have warned parents that Borax can be toxic if it's not safely diluted, which may have been the case with Quinn.

"We decided to make this recipe because slime is such a huge trend right now, " Buzzfeed senior producer Erin Phraner said on TODAY.
