Is Soapy Dough Safe?
Soapy Dough is safe to play with and will not harm the skin unless your child has an allergy or sensitivity to one of the ingredients. Even though most of the ingredients are baking ingredients we use in our home, kids shouldn’t eat Soapy Dough. Kids should not eat raw flour or high amounts of salt. They also shouldn’t eat dish soap. If you’re concerned about the soap, you could use Castille soap.
How to Store Homemade Soapy Dough Play Dough Recipe
Just like store-bought Play-Doh, Soapy Dough will need to be kept in an air-tight container. Ziploc plastic bags work well.
