Step 3 - Mix the slime powder

Making Party GOAT Slime is very quick and easy. All you need to do is add water to your tub, then stir in the Instant Slime powder. When it comes to preparing a big slime dunk tank, it's a good idea to add the bags of slime powder periodically, while the water is filling. This helps to mix the powder in the water and to prevent clumps. You don't need to add in all of the slime powder at once. Use a little less slime powder than what you think you'll need, check the consistency and if you think it needs to be thicker, slowly add in more slime powder. Continue this process until you have reached your desired consistency.
If you're using a bucket dunk tank, you can use these measurements below as guidelines:

2 tablespoons of Party GOAT slime powder = 1oz

1oz makes 1 Gallon of Slime (mix with 1 Gallon of water)

5 tablespoons = 2.5oz = 2.5 Gallons = 10 Quarts (9L) 

Cleaning the mess!

One thing that people tend to worry about with a slime dunk tank or using slime, is cleaning the mess. But never fear because here we will explain everything that you need to know about the slime aftermath!

Please don't worry about your clothes as our Party GOAT Slime is a non-staining formula and will wash out of clothes in a normal washing machine cycle. Trust us, we have been covered in Party GOAT  Slime many times. 

When disposing of the slime from the dunk tank, there is a simple trick to make things easy. Just add a bag of pool salt or several bags of table salt to the mix. The salt has properties that break down the slime, turning it back into a colored water for easy draining. (This part of the process will make you feel like a crazy scientist and can be quite a cool thing to show any kids that you have at your event, so make sure you get people involved for some extra fun!)
Once the slime has drained out, hose out any remaining residue slime from the dunk tank.

Safety tip - The slime will be quite slippery when it is in contact with the floor, so make sure that you have placed some volunteers nearby to help the contestants safely exit the dunk tank. This is to ensure that no one slips over on the slime and injures themselves. (These volunteers must be OK with getting a bit slimy too!)
When packing up, please remember to hose away any slime that has spilled out of the tub to ensure that there is no residual slime that could cause a slip hazard.


When water is just not enough, Party GOAT Instant Slime has got you covered! Now you can enjoy the most of your dunk tank! Instant slime is also available in a 4 color slime package that makes 10 gallons of Green, Blue, Pink and Yellow slime. This is perfect for a range of great slime games, slime fun runs, slime gun color fightsslime the teacher fundraisers, and slime themed birthday parties!
