PostHeaderIcon How can I re soften old Play-Doh?





I have a lot of play-doh, but some cans are getting hard. Is there a way to bring it back to it’s glory days?

    Not really unless you can just pick out the hard parts. Play-Doh is an air-dry clay so even if you tried to grind it up and soak it awhile then try to knead it enough to reconstitute it, that might not work well and would be way more trouble than it’s worth.

    Air-dry clays need to be kept as air-tight as possible when not using them, and they need to be handled reasonably quickly when using them because their water will always evaporate in air.
    (If you want a clay that won’t do that, use a polymer clay like Premo or Fimo/etc –which will never harden till heated a short time in a home oven– or use a true "modeling clay" like ClayToons which will never harden at all–just melts if heated.)

    I think if it were me,that I would try putting the cans in some heated water in a pan on top of the stove and see if you can’t soften them up,it may ruin the paper label on the cans but it’s the only way I can think of that may soften the dough.
