Here is a simple recipe below for homemade laundry starch, so you can iron your clothes without having to purchase starch ever again.
Basically laundry starch is made from starch, put into a solution with water.
Therefore, it is quite easy to make your own laundry starch at home.
Combine the ingredients and place in a 16 ounce (or larger) spray bottle.
Shake gently before using.
You then just spray this starch onto your clothes as you would commercially purchased laundry starch.
Hint: You can make the starch stiffer by adding more cornstarch, or lighter by adding more water, depending on how crisp you like your starched clothing.
When you wash the item the cornstarch will wash away in the laundry.
Hint: I would make very small batches of this, so you can use it quickly. It is so easy to make you don't need to make it large quantities, and then there is no risk of spoilage.
Did you know there are a lot of uses for cornstarch throughout your home?
