Elmer's glue mystery solved!!
I did not realize that most glues are simply very dense starches!!!
Maybe all are, I am not sure, but I did find out that the washable ones are.
I read where a person used glue to make their starches. I also found a recipe for starch that I plan to try. At the moment I have a bottle that I want to use first. I use a LOT of starch!!!!!!!
12 ounces water
3/4 T cornstarch
3 drops essential oils (I will leave this out)
mix in a spray bottle and shake to mix each time before using.
