This Fills In the Creases Like No Other

Ever wondered how to get that shirt crispy clean whilst super flat when you iron it?

It takes more than just superb technique as you are about to find out. Don’t get me wrong, technique is majorly important, in fact if I were to put it into percentage of importance, it would account for about 80% of how well your piece of garment looks. This extra step is only there to give it the polish that we all want.

This extra step is none other than Starch Spray! The best thing about it, is that you can just make it at home fairly easily without needing to drive out the supermarket. To take it even further, since we’re making it ourselves at home, you can customize it to your liking by adding desired scents.

The way that it works is that it adds stiffness to the fabric (this stops those pesky creases from rolling back up after you iron them.) This way it remains the way you ironed it for longer periods of time.

These desired scents can be incorporated in the form of either essential oils or raw herbs such as lavender or rosemary.

Firstly begin by filling a bottle or jar with regular tap water. Take note that if you live out where only hard water is available, I recommend using boiled or bottled water instead.

Next, add 1 heaped tablespoon of corn starch as well as any essential oils if desired.

Close up the bottle or jar and shake up the mixture.

Finally, funnel the contents into either a spray bottle or into the iron if it has a water spraying function.

Note that the cornstarch will have a tendency to settle to the bottom of your container after a few days, so be sure to shake up the mixture every time before you use it!
