PVA glue is a common white glue.

PVA glue is probably the common white glue available. It stands for polyvinyl acetates, and is nontoxic, has no unpleasant fumes and is easy to use. It is safe for children to use as long as they don't ingest it. A person can use PVA glue for a variety of projects including arts and crafts and woodworking. There are a few ways to accelerate PVA's glue drying time.


Step 1

Work in a well-ventilated area. The glue dries faster with air circulation.

Step 2

Apply only a small amount of glue. By using only enough glue to bond the materials together, the glue dries at a faster rate.


Step 3

Turn on a small fan and direct the blowing air toward the glued object. The circulating air helps to dry the glue.

Step 4

Turn on the oven to the warm setting. After 10 minutes, turn off the oven. Place the object inside the warm oven. The heat helps to evaporate the water molecules in the glue so it dries faster.
