I see a lot of DIY projects with bleach pens on Pinterest. I love the possibilities but they are not available here in the Netherlands. So I needed a DIY option. I saw options with corn starch, but I wanted it to be a little more gel-like. So I opted for arrowroot. And it turned out to be a perfect gel like substance. And not only for DIY projects! It’s perfect for cleaning too!
