RECIPE FOR INSULATING DOUGH

Materials: 

  • 1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 cup Distilled Water (Regular tap water can be used, but the resistance of the dough will be lower)

Directions:

  1. Mix all the solid ingredients and oil in a large pot or bowl.
  2. Mix in a bit of the distilled water and continue to mix the dough.
  3. Repeat step #2 until all the water has been mixed in.
  4. Once your mixture forms a consistency, began to use your hands to knead the dough into a lump.

If the dough becomes too sticky, sprinkle a bit more flour to level the consistency. Similarly, if the dough feels dry and is crumbling apart, add a bit more water.
