Bring Your Child’s Dried Out Play-Doh Back to Life With This Hack

We love playing with play-doh at our home. But, sometimes my daughter doesn’t want to put it up right away or gets sidetracked with something else and then it completely dries out and gets crumbly after we both forget about it and it sits out too long. Well, instead of tossing it and buying more every time, bring your child’s dried out play-doh back to life! Unfortunately, I don’t have a miracle hack for the poop brown colored play-doh that you see here that happens when your child blends all the colors together after you tell them a million times not to. But if you’re experiencing dry play-doh, try this simple hack.

You will need:

1.) Get the thick paper towel wet and wrap the play-doh inside. You don’t want the thin paper towels that tear easily, otherwise, it will stick to the play-doh and you’ll just have to toss some of it anyways.

2.) Then, cut off a piece of Reynolds KITCHENS™ Quick Cut™ Plastic Wrap and wrap over the play-doh in the wet paper towel so that it traps the moisture.

I love this plastic wrap because it’s easy to tear off an even piece with it’s implemented Quick Cut™ slider. I don’t know how many times I had to throw away the plastic wrap that I tore up and clung together with the previous versions of plastic wrap with the metal teeth cutters. They’re frustrating, to say the least, and I am sure you know exactly what I mean. This version doesn’t make me want to pull my hair out everytime I go to use it!



From beginning to end of use, this product is frustration-free thanks to its innovative features:

• Built-in slide cutter ensures a clean cut, every time

• Starter edge™ makes it easy to find the start of the roll


• Each roll is automatically held in place to keep it from jumping out of the package during dispensing

• The long-lasting tight seal keeps food fresh

3.) Stick back in the play-doh container and let sit overnight and then unwrap it all. Your play-doh should be moist and usable again. If your play-doh is super dry, you might need to repeat the process again.
