Make your own spray starch. Here’s how:

DREAM TEEN Magazine - - Frivolous Tips -

In­gre­di­ents: 1 heap­ing ta­ble­spoon of corn starch 1 pint dis­tilled wa­ter Con­sider adding a few fresh smelling herbs. This is only if you have fresh laven­der or rose­mary sprigs lay­ing around and you like an ad­di­tional scent. Oth­er­wise, your spray starch should be per­fect with just dis­tilled wa­ter and corn­starch. Com­bine the corn­starch and wa­ter in a bowl, and stir un­til the corn­starch is com­pletely dis­solved. (The mix­ture will be milky in color) Add herbs for fra­grance, if de­sired. Then, trans­fer to a spray bot­tle, and use. For best re­sults, shake be­fore each use. Com­mer­i­cal-pro­duced spray starch usu­ally con­tains formalde­hyde. Starch­ing clothes ac­tu­ally makes them last longer be­cause dirt and per­spi­ra­tion sticks to the starch and not to the fab­ric.
