Odowa lover, what you mention about Lead poisoning is very true but the kadi sold in paint shops has no paint in it whatsoever. It is used by the guys who paint to maybe draw lines on the walls as a marker. I'm so glad the way everyone looks out for the others in the forum. Cheers to this one big clay loving family !!
Hi Indian chalkie,
My concern was actually contamination coz of the storage conditions ... It's good if you are careful

Could some answera question for me! My daughter is in a dental assistance class and she told me that they was discussing! Clay/dirt&corn starch in here class! Could the white dirt be molded into a paste to make a mold for the mouth. Because I think I might be missing some chunks! I'm have to start keeping count!

Rinkie/Mahi/Ati,
Please share how you prefer your multani mitti. Since I dont have access
to chunks, I mix the powder with some water to make a paste and then
spread it out on a plate in the sun.Similar to haitian mud cake shapes.
It gets crunchy and deeeeeelicious after it gets dry !! You should try
this. The smoother the mitti, the lesser grit it has...the better the
taste.
hi actually me ye sab nahi kar sakti coz mere family ko pata nahi hAi . Muze mitti powder khana pasand hai .
Lekin me once month khati hu wo bhi enjoyment ke liye actually me control kar rahi hu

Mahi... clay is way better, Please be careful as what you're talking of ingesting is pure stones which can cause way more trouble that the odd stomach pain or constipation. Please stick to chalk or clay.

i agree! Pebbles in the rice and other food are the main reason for kidney stones. Take care dear! Drinking boiled pudina water or dhaniya water can cure it easily or help you to maintain a balance with pica. BTW i had an experiment with multani by adding water into to it and drying it out. It was delicious. Powder form of multani is dangourous to health..

I might have to tweet Anderson Cooper and tell him that's not strange that's normal! Pica Rules!!! LOL!!!
Yes, lol! Maybe he'd want to have some of us come on his show. I generally keep my habit a secret, but I've told a few people lately (and discovered that two of my sisters have cravings too!!) and people should be educated about clay eating. If Anderson wants to buy me a plane ticket I'd think about it, lol!
