I want to make home made playdoh.. It asks for



Flour
Salt
Oild
And cream of tartar




I dont have cream of tartar and dont want to spend $6.19 on a small thing of it. Is it absolutely necessary to have it?? What's the point of it?




Dont have baking soda or powder or any kind of starch either.

Yeah, it pisses me off lol. The organic one was 4 something and the original that was smaller and had less was 6.19. Either way I wasn't spending 4+ for the small amount given.

So i made the playdoh.



1 cup flour
1 cup water
1/3 cup salt
1 tbsp oil



And its soooooooooo sticky. What did I do wrong. I got the recipe off of a girls blog and it shows her making it and the doh looks so much more different lol.....is it b of the lack of tartar????

start by doubling the flour and see if that helps, I've never made play dough but .... lmao I do have a culinary degree, and the way you made it would defiantly make for a sticky mess. Wow I never thought I'd be using my culinary back round to help trouble shoot a play dough recipe . any how let me know if it helps
