Cream of Tartar is the key ingredient ideal for making your own affordable Fun Dough. Comes in a handy 1kg tub.

Bulk Cream of Tartar is a versatile ingredient that is perfect for making your own affordable Fun Dough at home. Whether you are a childcare provider looking for a fun and creative activity for the kids, or a teacher wanting to engage students in a hands on project, Cream of Tartar is a must-have in your pantry.

This unique ingredient is a byproduct of winemaking. It is actually potassium hydrogen tartrate which is essentially partially neutralized tartaric acid. It is a cheap, safe, and readily available mild acid that is ideal for generating carbon dioxide from baking soda.

In fact, one version of baking powder is a combination of sodium bicarbonate and Cream of Tartar. When mixed together, bubbles of carbon dioxide are released, making your dough rise and giving it that perfect texture.

Cream of Tartar is great for baking and making Playdough. It can also be used to keep your drains clear. By creating a simple mixture of Cream of Tartar, salt, and bicarbonate of soda, you can safely dislodge small blockages in your drains with the bubbling action it creates.

So next time you’re looking for a fun and affordable activity to do with your kids or students, reach for the Cream of Tartar. Get ready to have a blast.

Just remember to store it in a cool, dark place to ensure it stays potent and ready to use until the last bit of powder is gone. And if you ever wonder if Cream of Tartar goes bad, simply check for discoloration or an unusual smell – if you notice either, it’s time to discard it.

Make Play Dough with this simple recipe:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 teaspoons of Cream of Tartar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 drop of Tintex Craft Colour or Food Dye or similar
  • 1/2 cup salt

Mix the dry ingredients thoroughly, then add the food colouring to the water before stirring it into the dry mix. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it forms a ball. Your Playdough will last for up to four weeks, providing hours of entertainment for kids and adults alike.

So go ahead, unleash your creativity and have some fun with Cream of Tartar. It’s not just a baking ingredient – it’s a versatile tool for making memories and sparking imagination.
