MAKE YOUR OWN RECYCLED PAPER!

 
 

Hey guys!

 

This is how you can make your own recycled paper, as seen on today's episode!

 

Instructions:

1. Bend the coat hangar into a square or rectangular shape.

2. Stretch the pantyhose over the hangar until the material is taut.

3. Tear up strips of newspaper and place them in the blender, along with enough water to get the material wet and pulpy.

4. Set the blender to high and turn it on. Blend it until there is no longer any recognizable paper, but only a pulpy mass.

5. Add more water if the blender seems to be struggling, and more paper as the mass grows bigger. You want the blender to be full of formless gray pulp.

6. Fill a sink or portable tub with 4 inches of water. Add the white glue and mix it by hand until the glue has dissolved.

7. Add the paper pulp to the sink or tub.

8. Use the hangar/pantyhose screen to scoop up a layer of pulp. Allow all of the water to drain out of it back into the sink or tub. You should be left with a thin layer of protean paper.

9. Set the hanger out into a sunny place to dry. The process should take several hours or longer, depending on the time or day and the heat of the sun.

10. Carefully peel the new paper off of the frame, checking to make sure it is completely dry before doing so.

11. Apply a hot iron to the paper to steam out any lingering moisture. The iron should be set to its highest setting.

 

Enjoy saving the planet and being creative!
