Homemade Non-Toxic Glue

Just wanna share a couple of safe non-toxic glue that you can make at home...

Milk Glue

What you need:
1/4 cup hot water
1 tbs vinegar
2 tbs powdered dry milk
1/2 tsp baking soda

What to do:
1. Mix 1/4 cup hot water with 2 tbs powdered milk. Stir until dissolved.
2. Stir 1 tbs vinegar into the mixture. The milk will began to separate into solid curds and watery whey. Continue stirring until the milk is well-separated.
3. Pour the curds and whey into a coffee filter positioned over a cup. Slowly lift the filter, draining the whey. Keep the curd, which is in the filter.
4. Squeeze the filter to remove as much as liquid as possible from the curd. Discard the whey and return the curd to a cup.
5. Use a spoon to break the curd into small pieces.
6. Add 1 tsp hot water and 1/8 to 1/4 tsp baking soda to the curd. Some foaming may occur (CO2 gas from reaction of baking soda with vinegar).
7. Mix thoroughly until the glue becomes smooth and more liquid. If the mixture is too thick, add a bit more water. If the glue is too lumpy, add more baking soda.
8. The finished glue can vary in consistency from a thick liquid to a thick paste, depending on how much water has been added, how much curd was present, and how much baking soda was added.
9. Store your glue in old/used glue container if you have one or any container that can be use as a glue container. Over time, its consistency will become smoother and more clear. Unrefrigerated glue will 'spoil' after 24-48 hours. Discard the glue when it develops a spoiled milk smell.
10. Have fun with your homemade glue!

1. The separation of curds and whey works best when the milk is warm or hot.
2. If the separation doesn't work well, heat the milk or add a bit more vinegar. If it still doesn't work, start again with warmer water.
3. Clean dried glue by loosening/dissolving it in warm water and wiping it away. Glue will wash out of clothes and off surfaces.

School Glue

What you need:
1 1/2 cup water
2 tbs light corn syrup
1 tsp white vinegar
1/2 cup cornstarch

What to do:
1. Pour 3/4 cup of water into a medium sized pot along with the corn syrup and vinegar. Bring this mixture to a full boil, stirring often.
2. While you are waiting for the mixture to boil, mix the remaining cold water and the cornstarch together.Beat well to remove all of the lumps.
3. Slowly stir the water and cornstarch into the boiling mixture, stirring constantly. Bring the mixture to a boil and let it boil for 1 minute. 
4. Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool. Once it cooled, put the glue in a covered container and wait at least a day before using it.
5. Enjoy your new glue!
