PVA glue is often used in crafts but it’s made from petrochemicals, the production of which is bad for the environment. Here’s a recipe for glue made from natural materials that works just as well!
You will need:
45 g plain flour
15 g sugar
5 ml (1 teaspoon) vinegar
100 ml warm water
Jar or tub with lid
What you do:
- Put 50 ml of warm water into a jug and add the sugar. Stir until the sugar is fully dissolved.
- Add the vinegar.
- Put the flour into a bowl and slowly add the liquid, stirring all the time, until it is combined together. Keep stirring until there are no lumps.
- Add the rest of the water and stir thoroughly.
- Store the mixture in a jar or tub with the lid closed in the fridge for up to two weeks.
