PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A little girl burns her hands while making homemade slime.

Kathleen Quinn was taking part in a popular do-it-yourself project at her Massachusetts home.

However, shortly afterwards she noticed her hands were in pain.

She said her skin felt “really hot and tingly.”

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

“She was crying in pain, ‘My hands hurt, my hands hurt,’” said Siobhan Quinn, Kathleen’s mother. “We looked at them and they were covered in blisters.”

Doctors determined that Kathleen’s blisters came from extended exposure to borax, which is an ingredient in some homemade slime recipes.
