Adhesive glue was first invented by ancient tribes, and was originally made from animals' connective tissues. Nowadays, many items are produced with glue, including automobiles, buildings, shoes and furniture. Both children and adults use glue on a daily basis, whether it be for art projects or other everyday purposes. Instead of buying glue, you can make your own adhesive sticky glue with just a few household ingredients.
Things You'll Need
- 6 tbsp. water
- Small saucepan
- 1/2 oz. unflavored gelatin
- 2 tbsp. white vinegar
- 2 tsp. glycerin
- Jar with lid
Boil 6 tbsp. of water in a small saucepan. Remove the water from the heat and add the unflavored gelatin, stirring the gelatin into the water until it is completely dissolved.
Pour the white vinegar and glycerin into the mixture. Stir the mixture thoroughly to ensure the glue will be sticky and adhesive.
Allow the solution to cool slightly, and then pour the glue into a jar. Seal the jar's lid tightly to prevent the glue from drying out.
