Eat Starch Mom: Oobleck FAIL

One of my favorite fave books lately has been Dr. Seuss' "Bartholomew and the Oobleck" (500 Hats is a close second).  During one of Cami's naps, we decided to take advantage of the load of liquid starch we had leftover from our tissue paper bottle lights and try out one of the many oobleck recipes we'd seen around (people frequently call the same recipe oobleck, slime, gak, etc.) -- the one we tried was labeled gak, but we thought it looked more ooblecky (and we had already tried out a cornstarch version).


Although this was a different type of FAIL than the last time we tried to use our laundry starch in its' powder phase -- at least that made something cool.  This time absolutely nothing happened.  Despite us continually adding in more glue.  Does anyone do more laundry than mom and actually know if there is a difference between this liquid laundry starch, which appears to be what peeps are using, and the one we are using and mixing up into a liquid?  Well, maybe you don't do MORE laundry, but just do it more correctly?  Mom does a lot of laundry.
