Dish Soap Silly Putty

Dish Soap Silly Putty- THEE easiest silly putty recipe! You only need 2 ingredients and you most likely have both in your kitchen already.


  • Mixing bowl
  • measuring spoons


  • 1.5 tablespoons dish soap
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  • Mix the dish soap and corn starch together as best as you can for about 10 seconds.
  • Once it becomes difficult to stir, get your hands in there!
  • Work the putty until all of the ingredients in the bowl are combined thoroughly. This is when you’ll see the putty start to come together.


TIP: because dish soap formulas can vary, it’s ok if you need to add a little more. If the putty is entirely too dry, add a tiny bit more dish soap to it. Or, if the putty is too runny, add a tiny bit more cornstarch to it. After adding more of either ingredient, mix the putty by hand for a few moments. Just a little extra of either ingredient is all it takes:)
