The blistering burns were a result of handling homemade slime, the newest social media craze that's inspiring kids to make their own with do-it-yourself recipes.

An 11-year-old MA girl is recovering from second and third degree burns from a popular do-it-yourself slime project, according to a report from CNN and WCVB.

When her mother picked her up from the sleepover, she was crying in pain.

Mom Siobhan Quinn was initially thrilled to see her daughter in the kitchen and away from the television - until this week when she started to notice her hands turning red.

Doctors said that the burns likely came from prolonged exposure to Borax, WECT6 notes.

"I've had other mothers say 'Oh we've made it a million times, its fine nothing happened to my child, '" Siobhan told WCVB.

Kathleen Quinn, 11, was making homemade slime last weekend, and while at a sleep-over, she woke up to excruciating pain.

European banks launder millions from Russian Federation
Several UK banks have been accused of handling $740m in Russian money as part of a global money laundering scheme. Europe's biggest bank has allegedly processed more than $500 million in Russian "dirty money" over four years.

Her parents took her to the hospital, where doctors said she had second and third degree burns.

"We made it a million times, too, and nothing happened", Quinn told WCVB.

This isn't the first report of burns associated with slime. She said her daughter might be "looking at plastic surgery".

"I thought it was great", Siobhan Quinn told ABC 13.

Though the recipe Deejay found online called for Borax, it is not easy to find in the United Kingdom because it can cause eye irritation or damage a person's fertility, the Evening News reported. Her message to other kids is "don't make it, don't play with it". You use glue and a chemical mixture.

This week, an expert at Consumer Reports warned parents to be cautious while handling Borax.
