Top Review by Charishma_Ramchanda

I'm extremely sorry but this didn't work out for me. I used 3 tbsps. of cornflour because I wanted a stiffer starch for my sofa covers. When I used this yesterday, for sometime, the covers seemed to be starched. They looked really clean, really bright and white and stiff. However, after laying them out on the sofas and after a day has passed, today they don't seem to be starched at all. They look nice, no doubt, but just well ironed. Not Starched. I'm sorry about changing my review, but I thought it might help others who intended to try this.
