Making slime has been an absolute trend on social media for the last few years. On TikTok alone, videos with the hashtag #Slime have already received more than 150 million clicks, and the international #Slime has even had 44 billion views.
The “recipes” presented in these clips are mostly disgusting, slippery, but sometimes anything but harmless.
For example with Theresa Krug. The young TikToker, who goes by “Theresa360” on the platform, presented her 2.2 million followers with a slime recipe that consisted of just two commercially available ingredients. The end result was definitely slimy, but also extremely dangerous, in the truest sense of the word.

Napalm consists of gelled gasoline and is used as an incendiary weapon. The combustible mass must adhere to the target and ignite a strong fire, which, in the case of real napalm, cannot be extinguished with water. Depending on its composition, napalm can reach a combustion temperature of 800 to 1,200 degrees Celsius.
On the Internet, the mix is casually known as “DIY napalm.”

The combination she mixed up is casually known there as “Do It Yourself-Napalm”. The many videos or articles about it are provided with appropriate warnings.
