Play-Doh’s Birthday

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.
