Homemade Non-Toxic Glue
Yes, you can bypass the smelly glue from the store and make your own! This is especially handy when you have little people that would enjoy stick and glue activities, but also enjoy eating the glue - urgh.
This glue recipe only contains 4 ingredients - cornflour, salt, vinegar and hot water. It makes a big batch, so if you would rather only try a small amount, you can easily half the amounts to start with.
1 cup cornflour
1 Tbsp white vinegar
2 tsp salt
4 cups of hot water
Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and mix well with a whisk. Turn the stovetop on high heat and bring the mixture to a boil, whisking it constantly. If it is lumpy, you may need a little bit more water. Once the mixture becomes thick and translucent take off the heat and let it cool down in a heatproof container.
