Introduction: Personal Lubricant
Cheap, easy to make personal lubricant. Start to finish is about 10 minutes without cooling time. I'm assuming this is water based, since all it is is water and corn starch. If you are allergic to water or corn starch, do not use. USE EXTERNALLY! Also, since the comments are talking about this being glue, YES, you can glue things together with this, but it is a VERY weak bond since the promintent ingredient is water. The proportions are not correct for making a glue, and it takes a while for this stuff to dry out. I glued two sheets of printer paper together with a tiny dot of the stuff, but I separated the sheets like they were not glued once it dried.
Step 1: Gather Materials
1 cup (8 oz.) water
4 tsp corn starch (I do not suggest putting the corn starch in a container. It tends to stick to everything. For the purpose of this guide, it is shown in a small bowl)
A cooking pot
Step 2: Mix Water and Corn Starch in Pot
Add the water and the corn starch into the pot and mix. I used a wood spoon to mix. I don't know if metal or plastic would make a difference.
Step 3: Slowly Bring to a Boil on Medium to Low Heat
Make sure you have stirred well and there is no corn starch stuck to the bottom of the pot. Cover the pot and slowly bring to a boil. All stoves are different; I used "4", the setting directly across from the off setting. Stir often, making sure the corn starch does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
Step 4: Almost There...
The contents should do some funky things while being heated. Just remember to stir often and be patient.
Step 5: Once It Has Reached a Boil...
Once it has reached a boil the contents should become more viscous and somewhat resemble the consistency of gelatin. You cannot tell very well from the picture, but you will definately be able to tell when it is done. Remove from the stove and pour into a container of choice.
Step 6: Allow to Cool
Allow the solution to cool at room temperature. DO NOT PUT IT IN THE REFRIDGERATOR OR FREEZER!!! It will cause the solution to form a skin that is a lot harder than the rest.
Step 7: Enjoy!
The container on the right is still hot and starting to cool. On the left is the finished product that has been stirred up to show texture. The finished product should jiggle like jello. My results have had a small layer of "skin" when it has cooled, but was easily removed with minimal effort.
