Can I water down whole milk, or use evaporated?

If you don't want to make glue don't make it?! But as a side note I don't agree that time is money, the only thing they have in common is how you choose to spend them. I think a great memory made in time is priceless. I know when I am in my final days, I won't be like, "Darn!, I sure wish I would of worked more and made more money.... Nah.. I will be like"Hey!, remember that time we made homemade glue! ha ha..."

On top of that, we would be lessening our carbon foot print, by up-cycling an old container, instead of going out and buying ten more to float around the earth for forever.. cuz plastic is not bio degradable it only breaks apart to smaller pieces that get into our water and fish supply :) and maybe you could even recycle it, but once recycled the chances are the next person will "throw it away."

Thank you for posting a way for me to make memories with the ones I love :))

If it's glue for paper you need, gooey old rice is great.

How do I make white glue?

If you are thinking of PVC glue, like the white carpenter's glue, forget it. It would cost you twenty times as much to make it, than to buy it at Home Depot.

If you just want a cheap household glue for fun and crafts, that don't have to go out into the weather for many years, then simply mix a bit of flour and water to a thick and smooth paste. For rigid, porous organics like wood, paper, cloth, etc. that makes a very strong and lasting glue.

You can make just a spoon full whenever you need some craft glue.

Keep in mind that home-made white glue is NOT weather-proof!

Have FUN!

If you break a ceramic and don't have cement type glue, you can use the white of an egg for glue. Crack the egg and dip a toothpick or maybe a Q-tip in the white thats left on the shell. It works the same as glue.

If its paper you're wanting to glue, use a paste made from flour and water. You'll get a white glue similar to the white glue that comes in a squeeze bottle.

Homemade Glue

For paper glue i have always used egg white when I have run out of PVA glue. An art project I helped my niece do for school recently was to make a picture of a face from cut out pieces of a magazine - she had no glue so we cracked open an egg and used the white. It's a perfect paper glue.
