With this homemade baby-safe slime paint recipe we’ve been able to do all the painting we want, worry-free! I hope you can also enjoy it, especially during this quarantine period.

To clean the paint from the windows, mix water with with dish soap in a bowl and use a cloth to rub off the paint in a circular motion. Go over with window cleaner to remove any streaks.
