Abstract

The purpose of this project was to create a more efficient Wite Out which will cover pen ink more quickly with less Wite Out going to waste. Ethanol, white paint, water, and potato starch were mixed together in order to create a smooth substance that would stick to the paper more efficiently. The homemade Wite Out turned out to be a huge success being more than twice as effective after fifteen trials. Almost each time, the pen ink was not visible at all through the homemade one after just one stroke.
