What are the components of STARCH,VINEGAR, and GELATIN that can make home made glue sticky? Please help I really need this badly.

Oh and if you can answer this, please do–> Can you suggest an ingredient that I might add so that the glue will stick stuff faster? Cause when I made the glue thing, it sticks slower than the glue sold in stores. What can I add to make it stick faster?

    When I was a kid we made a simple paste out of flour and water, but it didn’t dry fast.

    I found a place on the Internet with a simple Glue Recipe…

    Materials Needed

    * skim milk
    * baking soda
    * vinegar
    * measuring cup
    * measuring spoons
    * paper towels
    * rubber band


    1. Check with a grown-up before you begin.
    2. Did you know you can make glue from vinegar and milk? Here’s how.
    3. Add 2 tablespoons of vinegar to 1/2 cup of skim milk. Stir them together and let the mixture sit for two minutes. The vinegar will make the protein in the milk stick together to form small white lumps called curds. The leftover liquid is called whey.
    4. Next, you’ll need to strain the curds since you won’t need the whey to make glue. To make a strainer, put a folded paper towel over an empty cup. Push it down in the center so it forms a bowl shape. Put a rubber band around the top of the cup to hold the paper towel in place. Pour the curds and whey into the cup with the paper towel. The whey will go through the paper towel and the curds will stay on top. Wait about five minutes for the whey to drain through the paper towel.
    5. Use a spoon to carefully scoop out the curds. Put them between two dry paper towels and press down to get all the whey out.
    6. Put the curds into another cup, stir in two teaspoons of water and then add one teaspoon of baking soda. The baking soda reacts with the vinegar that’s in the curds, producing carbon dioxide. If you hold the mixture up to your ear, you can hear tiny bubbles popping. If this mixture doesn’t look like glue, just add some water.

    Now it’s time for you to get gluey. Test out your new sticky stuff and tell us what you think. Tell us what it can hold and for how long. Can you stick a banana to a paper plate or a penny to a ping-pong ball? Make yourself a Stick-O-Meter to compare the stick factor of this glue with other stuff that sticks.
