Any recipes for "pritt" sticks? Answered

 Hey guys! (and girls)!

                                        Just pondering whether there was any glue stick recipe i could try? I want to try and make my own "pritt" stick style glue.


I'm looking for the same thing. I did find a simple recipe I haven't tried yet. It's 5 cups water to 5 tablespoons cornstarch. You use old containers if possible, although I imagine you can figure out something else, even cardboard tubes. Stir the cornstarch in water until dissolved. Turn heat on high and bring to a boil. Lower heat and stir vigorously for about five minutes. Let cool about ten or fifteen minutes and pour into containers. Let sit for eight hours or so.
I would certainly try a smaller amount first, but since it's one to one, that shouldn't be a problem. Also found one using equal parts four and cornstarch with less water. Good luck. Hope it works for both of us.

Good question (don't know, but a good question)
