Default Kinetic Sand Recipe

Does anyone have a good kinetic sand recipe? There's so many online, but I'm looking for tried and true and also for making large quantities. Thank you!

To create rainbow sand, you need a few dyed combinations:
Neon Pink = 5 drops
Neon Blue = 4 drops
Neon Purple = 3 drops
Orange = 4 yellow and 1 red
Green = 4 Neon Green and 1 regular green
Yellow = 6 regular yellow drops

For each batch:
1/2 cup white sand
1 teaspoon corn starch
1/2 teaspoon clear or white hand soap
1 teaspoon water (may need extra water)

The sand came in 24 oz bags and I was able to do 3 colors with that weight of sand.
Use a clear hand soap vs a blue or yellow liquid dish washing soap so it didn’t mess with my colors.
