If you have a small project cut it in half and it will work out great!
I mixed all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and stirred it continuously until it looked like milk and all the lumps were gone.
So easy and quick to make!
Plenty of times I’ve read on other blogs mixing the ingredients separately. But I feel like when I mixed them all together to begin with it was more creamy and looked better on furniture. As well as make sure you are using hot water made it mix easier. In other words, don’t use cold water!
