Making Instagoo, mk.1

Instagoo is a DIY bed adhesive

gallon bags of PVP-K30 and PVA

The above are dissolved in a 50% Isopropyl alcohol solution.

PVA is highly soluble in water, so I mixed 9g of PVA in 200ml distilled water. I heated this on my print bed to 70c, and over about an hour it fully dissolved easily.

PVP-K30 is readibly soluble in alcohol or water, but I already dissolved the PVA in water, so I mixed 21g of PVP in 200ml of 99% Isopropyl alcohol. Gentle swirling and stirring and the PVP basically dissolved on it's own.

Combine the solutions, stir well, and portion into small bottles for use. I used some cheap needle-tip precision applicator PET bottles for my mix, although the labels that came with that set don't stick to the bottles at all. A little packing tape fixed that.

If you wanna confuse the chemists, add a little bit of dye to give it a nice color, and don't tell them. Laugh as they start wildly postulating on what could be contaminating your solution
