Step 1: Gathering Your Ingredients
What You’ll Need for That Perfect Press
- 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch: The magic ingredient for that crisp finish.
- 1 Pint Cold Water: To dissolve the cornstarch and create your starch solution.
Step 2: Mixing Your Marvelous Starch Solution
Crafting Your Eco-Friendly Spray
1. Stir to Perfection
- Smooth Solution: In a mixing bowl or jug, combine the cornstarch with cold water. Stir vigorously until the cornstarch is completely dissolved, ensuring a smooth, lump-free mixture. This step is crucial for a flawless application on your fabrics.
2. Bottle Your Brew
- Spray Ready: Pour your newly created starch solution into a clean spray bottle. This will be your essential tool for achieving that professional, crisp look at home.
Step 3: Using Your Homemade Spray Starch
Achieving Laundry Excellence
1. Shake and Spray
- Uniform Mix: Before each use, give your spray bottle a good shake to mix the solution well. Cornstarch tends to settle at the bottom, so this ensures an even spray every time.
2. Iron to Impress
- Crisp Creases: Lightly spray your fabric with the starch solution, then iron as usual. You’ll notice how easily and beautifully your clothes and linens press, achieving that sought-after crispness that elevates their appearance.
