This week on the Dullum File we observe the 50th birthday of Play-Doh.
To celebrate, the kids at Center Court Fitness daycare and I made some of our favorite stuff out of Play-Doh including a (blue) kangaroo and a pancake (in bright orange). Our station artist, Mary Anne Muhonen, made a much more elaborate birthday cake out of Play-Doh for the 50th.
According to Play-Doh’s web-site, a couple of the most frequently asked questions about Play-Doh are what’s in it and how do you get it out of carpeting? The exact ingredients of the product are a secret. But it is primarily a mixture of water, salt and flour. It does not contain peanuts, peanut oil or any milk byproducts. It does contain wheat. To remove Play-Doh from carpets, do not use hot water or cleaning solutions of any kind. Instead, allow it to dry completely and then loosen it with a stiff brush. It may be necessary to vacuum clean or wash with gentle soap and cold water.
Now you know.
