Save the Dough!

Goodness...it's been a while since I have posted anything. Life has sure been keeping us busy. I can't figure out for the life of me how others do it...being a Mom, selling on Etsy AND keeping up w/ their blogs on a daily basis....there just isn't enough time in the day for me.

Anwyays, I just wanted to post a quick tip for everyone who has ever tossed their kids play-dough because it got left out to long. I thought if it one day and it has worked wonderfully every single time I have done it...even on partially crunchy play-dough.

Simply wet a paper towel and squeeze out until just damp (You don't want it dripping wet). Wrap around your play-dough and place back in it's container (or any air tight container) and let sit for 1-2 weeks. Your play-dough will be like new! This works better than adding water directly to the dough because it evenly absorbs the moisture it needs instead of breaking down and getting clumpy.

So go ahead and save the dough! :)
