This is a very forgiving recipe.  You want "the mud" to be damp and mold-able but not too wet.

Having Trouble?  
If your clean mud is too runny that means you accidentally added too much water.
That's OK!   Just mix a bit of baking soda in. 

Clean mud is fabulous for all sorts of sensory play and allows kids all the fun of playing in the mud without any of the mess!

Clean mud is squishy, yet mold-able.  It has a fantastically soft texture that is calming and captivating.  This mud also leaves kids fresh and clean after play, a huge bonus I would say.
