My by far craziest self-sustainability experiment….And I want to see your face when you see what I did this time!:
HOMEMADE NON-TOXIC GLUE
½ cup corn starch or flour
½ cup sugar
¾ cup water
½ Tsp vinegar (white or essence)
In a saucepan combine corn starch and sugar and while whisking add water until a smooth paste without lumps forms. Add vinegar. Heat over medium heat while constantly stirring with the whisk until it becomes the thick consistency of glue. Fill into a jar glass and let cool. Close and use as normal glue applied with a brush. At room temperature this will be good for a week and in the fridge for a few months (due to the conserving vinegar).
This glue will take a lot longer to harden than store bought toxic stuff but when it is dry it sticks really good. This is perfect for craft projects with kids, since it is completely made of food products and is in no way toxic.
