Doctors said Quinn's second- and third-degree burns were due to extended exposure to Borax One - a common ingredient in homemade slime.

Siobhan said both of her daughters are avid hand washers, which is why she was surprised by the appearance of the blisters.

"We made it a million times, too, and nothing happened", Quinn told WCVB. She said her daughter might be "looking at plastic surgery". "I feel like the worst mother".

"She was crying in pain, 'my hands hurt, my hands hurt, '" Kathleen's mother told the news station. But last weekend, Kathleen says she woke up in the middle of the night in excruciating pain.

When she told her parents, they noticed the skin on her hands was turning red and beginning to blister. "It just felt awful". Kathleen Quinn, who at one point was making the slime on a daily basis, suffered the injury while staying over at a friend's house, WCVB reported.

"This time I just think her hands had had enough, " Siobhan said.

Kathleen's foray into science came with a painful price.

Borax, or sodium tetraborate, is a natural mineral that has been used for laundry and house cleaning for more than a century.

Homemade slime recipes have been the latest social media craze, with glue flying off the shelves. The label also warns to keep it out of the reach of children.

Her parents took her to a local hospital and found out she had second- and third-degree burns.

However, cases like Kathleen's are extreme, according to medical experts.

Use a recipe that doesn't contain Borax. "But, when they have heavy doses as in a lot of exposure with a lot of borax, that might cause an issue especially if they have sensitive skin". Borax, Elmer's Glue and Borax are the main ingredients in the slime.

Some tutorials on youtube for homemade slime now offer substitutes for Borax like baking soda, salt, or cornstarch.

This just goes to show that DIY's can be fun, but make sure it's safe to use.
