Stir up Spray Starch

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by txgammi

This recipe comes from a book by Jerry Baker and is his favorite for spray starching. I've not tried this one yet but will soon. There are several ways to make your own laundry starch, but they all include the same secret ingredient: Stirring the bejeebers out of them to make sure they end up lump free.

This recipe technically worked to stiffen the clothing, but left white sploches all over colored clothing so they couldn't be worn. Would only use on white or very light khaki. Probably wouldn't use this one again.
